Retiring House Dem: ObamaCare is unraveling because young people won’t sign up

posted at 12:41 pm on January 27, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Perhaps it takes retirement for Democrats to be honest about the status of ObamaCare, and about its unsustainable structure. Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA), who recently announced his retirement from the House, told American University Radio last week that the dearth of enrollments from young, healthy Americans in ObamaCare would “unravel” the whole system — and that furthermore, they’d be right to avoid it:

“I’m afraid that the millennials, if you will, are less likely to sign up. I think they feel more independent, I think they feel a little more invulnerable than prior generations,” Moran says. “But I don’t think we’re going to get enough young people signing up to make this bill work as it was intended to financially.”

If Moran’s prediction is correct, the whole law could unravel. He says there just isn’t enough incentive for healthy young people to sign up for insurance.

“And, frankly, there’s some legitimacy to their concern because the government spends about $7 for the elderly for every $1 it spends on the young,” Moran says.

Yes, frankly, there has always been substantial legitimacy to their concerns. The law requires young and healthy consumers to buy expensive comprehensive insurance for thousands of dollars a year, far exceeding their likely expenditures on health-related services and products. It then imposes ridiculous deductibles which all but guarantee that they won’t see any benefit at all from those policies. That money will instead benefit older Americans by subsidizing their premiums. It’s one of the most perverse wealth transfers of all time.

The report from Matt Laslo includes the complaint from Democrats that Republicans won’t help fix the law that Democrats shoved through Congress over their objections. Jim Geraghty answers that charge:

First, why is it outrageous for Republicans to attempt to repeal a law that even its supporters are now saying isn’t working, as Moran says, or that has “glaring flaws”?

Secondly, what Democrat bill to reform some of the “glaring flaws” are Republicans blocking?

Thirdly, what “reform” would get millennials to sign up for a product that they already must purchase, or else pay a special tax of one percent of their income?

There is no “fix” bill on these “glaring flaws” for Republicans to debate, let alone support. The White House and Democrats are trying to pretend that everything’s working well, and that there is no legitimacy to any concerns over the structure, performance, or security risks in ObamaCare. Moran is just letting the cat out of the bag.

The White House and Democrats are trying to pretend that everything’s working well, and that there is no legitimacy to any concerns over the structure, performance, or security risks in ObamaCare. Moran is just letting the cat out of the bag.

It’s important to remember that Moran was one of Obamacare’s biggest cheerleaders (and that short skirt he wore was not particularly flattering).

Moran got his good pal Dr. Howard Dean to talk up Obamacare at super secret town hall meetings that we constituents had to register for to avoid non-constituents from getting wind of the meeting. It is telling that he admits the truth after he announced his retirement.

The only lingering question is if his son, Patrick, signed up.

If the law were successful, nobody would be quick to hang it on Republicans, they would be crowing about the (very true) fact that they were the ones who wrote, voted on, and implemented the law over everyone else’s objections.

CONCORD, N.H. — Families shopping for health insurance through the new federal marketplace are running into trouble getting everyone covered when children are eligible for Medicaid but their parents are not.

Children who qualify for Medicaid, the safety-net program for the poor and disabled, can’t be included on subsidized family plans purchased through the federal marketplace, a fact that is taking many parents by surprise and leaving some kids stuck without coverage.

A California man says he was given false assurances that his children could be covered by the same plan he picked for his wife and himself, and a Florida father says his daughter is going without coverage while he waits for answers.

Read: NFL Fires Back At Gun Company’s Claim

And in New Hampshire, some parents who’ve enrolled in private plans for themselves alone are finding out later that their children aren’t eligible for Medicaid after all, leaving their kids with no options.

“The children are getting stuck in this spot where we’ve enrolled the parent, but we can’t bring the children back on the family plan,” Maria Proulx, senior legal counsel for Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire, told a state advisory board panel this month.

The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services declined to say how the system is supposed to work for families and what problems have emerged. But a regional manager for CMS acknowledged the problem at the same New Hampshire meeting and said the agency is working on it, as did Proulx in a later interview.

“This is an important issue, and we’re not taking it lightly,” she said. “Even if this impacts only one family … it’s a big deal and we want to get it resolved as quickly as possible.”

The federal government sets minimum guidelines for Medicaid eligibility, but states can choose to expand coverage beyond that. In some states, parents must have significantly lower incomes to gain Medicaid coverage for themselves than they would to get coverage for just their children, either through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program — also known as CHIP — the low-income health insurance program for children who don’t qualify for Medicaid.

In North Port, Fla., Russell Clouden was thrilled to find a better, cheaper family plan through the new marketplace, then stunned to realize his 14-year-old daughter wouldn’t be enrolled because she might qualify for Florida Healthy Kids, the state’s version of CHIP. The federal government still hasn’t transferred roughly 90,000 Medicaid files over to Florida officials, including Clouden’s daughter’s, so she still doesn’t have insurance.

“Based on your income, they’ll separate your kids from your primary policy and they shift them off to Medicaid or Healthy Kids and there’s no way you can bring them back,” said Clouden, whose daughter is an accomplished equestrian jumper.

“I’m kind of in limbo with her because I’m just hoping she doesn’t get injured or sick,” said Clouden, 53, who runs a restaurant franchise. “Without insurance, you’ve kind of got a knot in your stomach watching her jumping.”

Insurance broker Matthew Dinkel in Fort Myers, Fla., said he has about 15 clients in Clouden’s position.

“I have worried parents literally calling and texting me every day asking for an update,” said Dinkel. “They canceled their old plans that covered their entire family and now they have coverage but their kids don’t.”

“This is an important issue, and we’re not taking it lightly,” she said. “Even if this impacts only one family … it’s a big deal and we want to get it resolved as quickly as possible.”

The thing is too though, that even though the 26 thing is clear pandering to younger voters, aren’t there are plenty of people who are younger than 26 to whom this would not apply? What about those whose parents don’t have insurance? What about someone who is 18 but whose parents were both deceased? There must be some people in the 18-26 age range that would not be helped by this. I’m over 26 now, but this thrown-bone doesn’t look like it would have helped me at all. It seems mainly aimed at more upper class 26-and-unders.

First lady Michelle Obama is seeking $10 donations to protect Obamacare, her husband’s troubled health insurance system.

Just one day before he gives the annual State of the Union address, the first lady sent out a fundraising email to supporters hoping to use the speech to prompt donations to help Democrats in the midterm elections this fall.

Imagine if Laura Bush would have done this.

Schadenfreude on January 27, 2014 at 1:49 PM

Of course young voters such as myself aren’t signing up, why should we? I haven’t even had a bad cold in years, so I wouldn’t even use basic insurance services most years, let alone an ultra comprehensive, even if it did have deductibles that were more friendly to that sort of usage.

What most people my age need, is catastrophic coverage. In case we get into an accident, or develop cancer, are assaulted, or whatever. Anything beyond that is simply more than most people my age need.

It’s cheaper to take the penalty, than to pay for these so called services. It’s annoying, since I don’t have a ton of disposable income to be spending on nonsense like government fees, but it’s still a far better use of my money then spending thousands every year for a plan I will not and effectively can not use.

WolvenOne on January 27, 2014 at 2:07 PM

The Democrat plan in a nutshell:
