Young People Should “Opt Out” of Obamacare

As the Obamacare pyramid scheme looms, Generation Opportunity launches aggressive campaign promoting Opt Out

Washington, DC – (9/19/13) – Generation Opportunity, a national, non-partisan youth advocacy organization, is launching #OptOut, a digital and grassroots campaign designed to highlight alternatives to expensive and creepy Obamacare exchanges.

As first reported by Yahoo! News, the campaign will include a video series as well as a grassroots effort to educate young Americans on their healthcare freedom:

  • Signing up for Obamacare will force Millennials to pay more to cover costs for the wealthier. Rates will increase by an average of 169% for the young while older people will pay about 22% less.
  • Now that we know government collects the email and phone data of innocent Americans, do you want to further compromise your privacy? If you sign up for Obamacare, your sensitive information will go into a new central data hub — an identity thief’s dream.
  • Obamacare is full of exceptions for those connected enough to get special favors, mostly corporate cronies, congress and their special friends. These inconsistencies contribute to businesses avoiding Obamacare by shifting to more part-time positions-hurting those looking for jobs after graduation.

Evan Feinberg, President of Generation Opportunity, issued the following statement:

“Obamacare supporters are using millions of taxpayer dollars in an attempt to brainwash my generation into signing up for an expensive, unfair, and, quite frankly, creepy pyramid scheme.

“We want young people to know they have options — including the ability to opt out of Obamacare by paying a relatively small penalty.

“We don’t have celebrities and taxpayer dollars like Enroll America so we are relying on creativity and grassroots activism to reach our fellow Millennials.

“Opting out of Obamacare is the cheapest, smartest decision for my generation.”
