The point is the % of people 27-35 who are uninsured is higher than almost every other category, and getting them ALL in the pool will help costs:
Notice the DIFFERENCE between your version of truth and the reality? They only make up 14% of the population yet they are over 25% of the uninsured. Thats a HUGE difference man. Way bigger than ANY other category.
How do you explain this? Isn't the 27-34 category the absoluite ideal category to be trying to get in the pool based on the data?
You don't see the problem here?
Even the CBO predicts in 10 years there will still be at least 30 million people uninsured, and that number is probably ridiculously low. As more employers drop coverage there will be a percentage of employees who don't elect to buy any.
