In an unsurprising turn of events, the Obama Administration is having a tough time getting the individuals that they need to sign up for Obamacare. The young millennial generation that seemed to clamor with delight that the President was elected (twice) are failing to follow their faithless leader down the path that he has laid for them. Younger individuals are finding themselves too busy or possibly are becoming wise to the President’s bait and switch and are avoiding the Obamacare sign up all together. This is creating massive amounts of problems for the President and his plan for “affordable” healthcare. The lemmings seem to have decided not to follow his lead.

Without the pool of younger Americans joining the healthcare exchanges, the problems of increased payments and plans are growing exponentially. The younger, healthier crowd needs to pick up the slack that the President has laid for them and create a program that is less loaded on the elder end and more on the younger generation. Without their help, the President is likely to see his problems continue and the Obamacare exchange issues exacerbated.

What this helps to identify is not just that the Obamacare plan is failing. That we already know. What it is showing is that the President who used the youth to infiltrate the electorate quite effectively, not through voting necessarily but through talk and motivation of other voters, does not have them to count on now. Of course, it could be that they have had a change of heart. The truth is, though, that it appears as if their wallet and their frustration with the website carrying Obamacare information is really at fault. The President, who utilized social media in such an impressive way, is now failing to utilize the medium that he once found so helpful. Interesting and ironic all at the same time.
