The largest and fastest growing organization for libertarian and conservative causes on America’s college campuses will be mobilizing Texas students this weekend as they host former presidential candidate Ron Paul to Texas State University in San Marcos.
The results of failed policies and programs from the Obama Administration seem to be a major factor in more college students unifying.
"Obamacare's success hinges on young Americans enrolling in health exchanges, but for many it means much higher costs and unnecessary coverage," Alyssa Farah, Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) Director of Communications said recently.
Young people are enrolling in Obamacare exchanges at disproportionately lower rates than other age groups, which continue to feed the fire against the law’s future.
The White House projected it required 2.7 million younger Americans to enroll in private changes by their recent deadlines to offset the costs of coverage for less healthy, older Americans.
On Saturday, April 12, 2014 (9:00am - 7:00pm), Texas State University campus will be the site for a statewide YAL convention for young Americans at the J.C. Kellam Administration Bldg, in San Marcos, Texas.
Ron Paul is schedule to speak at 6 pm, along with a lineup of activists and notables of libertarian and conservative causes.
With the National Center of Public Policy Research recently reporting that about 3 million of those ages 18-34 will be at least $1,000 better off if they choose to pay the penalty and opt out of Obamacare exchanges, the subject is certain to be high on the list of young America’s topics of discussion. (Note: About 3.7 million young Americans would save over $500, the study revealed).
"It is fundamentally wrong to coerce young, healthy people into purchasing expensive coverage to subsidize the costs of care for older, likely wealthier Americans," Farah said.
"Unfortunately for President Obama, many young Americans will choose to pay the small opt-out penalty rather than pay for pricey exchanges," Farah added. "What happened to, 'if you like your plan, you can keep it'?"
"My policy, which I was happy with, is being discontinued in 2014," Douglas, a YAL supporter, wrote to the group’s website. "The equivalent policy, according to Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, will cost $562.32 per month. The policy I have now costs $263.44."
"President Obama mislead millions of Americans in an attempt to shove unwanted Obamacare down our throats," Farah noted. "He took away our ability to choose what is best for us."
YAL has over 500 chapters nationwide.
