Balancing Obamacare on the Backs of the Obama Generation

Mike Brownfield /

Remember the Obama campaign?

President Barack Obama’s victory was built, at least in part, on the hopes and dreams of eager young adults and bright-eyed, liberal college students who donned t-shirts emblazoned with the symbol of their champion, knocked on doors and made phone calls, all in the belief that the youthful senator from Illinois would bring about hope, change and a new dawn in America.

Guess what? Change is coming. Obamacare, embodied in two giant telephone book-sized congressional bills, chock full of all sorts of complex new rules and regulations, will be built on the backs of those same young Americans who helped put Obama in office.
