The architecture of Obamacare rests on the untested premise that millions of 20-30 year olds “invincibles” would ante up for health insurance that they cannot afford and do not feel that they need. No research was done to see how many of this demographic would sign up making the entire architecture scaffolded upon a wish and a hope.
