President Obama’s support among young Americans ages 18 to 29 has plunged from 61 percent in December 2012 to last month’s low of 46 percent. - Breibart

A survey by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics found that 57 percent of young people disapprove of Obamacare, 51 percent said the law would increase the amount they pay for health coverage, and just 18 percent believe their quality of health care will improve under the law....

Alexandra, 21, an electronics engineer and technology major at FAMU, said that “her mom and dad are pissed” about their insurance premiums going up. “They are really upset about their insurance right now. I’m surprised they haven’t taken me off yet,” Alexandra continued.

When I explained to Alexandra how much an uninsured FAMU student would have to pay in fines, she was shocked. “$95 to $395? Are you serious?” she asked. I explained that the fines would increase every year and are administered through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). “If I can’t afford to pay for the damn insurance, what makes them think I can pay them?” Alexandra asked.

I asked a student named Franiqua who is studying elementary education at FAMU about the ACA’s online exchange website, She said, “Yeah, I heard it doesn’t work.”

...Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus might see young people’s reactions found in the Harvard survey as proof that ObamaCare was a law “intentionally designed to screw over young people.”
