When the Luck Runs Out

Bethell, Tom
September 2012
American Spectator;Sep2012, Vol. 45 Issue 7, p62
The author explores the impact of the U.S. Affordable Care law for today's youth and 40 years later when they retire. It explains that the law wants to require young, healthy people to buy insurance so that others' premiums will not rise as insurance firms need low-maintenance, young customers to cover benefits for less-healthy people that the law requires them to insure. It speculates on whether the young people know they are being burdened with Social Security that may not be there for them.
