‘Complete Debacle’: Toomey Says Young People Won’t Enroll in ObamaCare

‘It’s disproportionately older and sicker people. They are not getting the young, healthy people to sign up’

"Well, you know, I think the democrats are going to have to come to the conclusion that something needs to be done. They couldn't possibly just stand by while millions of people are thrown off their health care plan because of the ObamaCare bill. And because of the Administration's inability to get a basic functioning website, they can't get anything else. That's not sustainable. So, you know, we've got to find a solution fast. I've got thousands and thousands of people across Pennsylvania writing to me every day, and some heart wrenching stories of people who are in really tough circumstances, and they just lost their coverage. By the way, Steve, that's not the only problem. This ObamaCare has got so many problems, turns out that people who are managing to get on, and sign up, the vast majority of them are just going on to Medicaid. They're getting free health care. That's not the dynamic that was promised. And those who are actually paying for the health care, it's disproportionately older, and sicker people. They are not getting the young, healthy people to sign up, which is not surprising because they're overcharging those folks so much. So this is just a complete debacle. It's hard to know even where to begin with Secretary Sebelius."
