    You fail to mention this a pro-obama organization that is trying to push his healthcare reform that I am 100% against. He doesn't want healthcare for everyone………maybe they night get it now (the poor that can't afford it)….but you just wait until you are 90 and the "government" decides they can't afford to pay for your surgery and you are let to die. It's MAD what this plan is all about. Don't buy into this and let him brainwash you again!

    i am young. and i will not be part of that group, all it is is another group for Obama's agenda.

    seriously get off the obama band wagon people. do you really honestly believe he is any different than the other presidents you despised? do you really think he cares about you or your grandmother?

    just because there is a new face on the president does not mean that the same old people aren't running the show.

    This organization doesn't seem to be strictly pro-Obama. I'm 25 and I have been shocked by how silent our generation has been during the national health care conversation. Everyone (except the fringe right) is in agreement that our system spends too much and isn't delivering good enough outcomes for Americans. The house bill, which I read, appears to do a lot to promote a culture of wellness and prevention rather than diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, a strong public option as an alternative to private insurance can only encourage more competition and help drive down cost. For those public option doomsday soothsayers I thought Senator Schumer made a very good point. He noted that in New York State there is a mix of first-rate public universities and first-rate private universities. This system has existed for several years without the public universities cannibalizing the private schools. Also, public universities are not held to the standard that the public option will be (funded exclusively by premiums) and are heavily subsidized. Even with these subsidies the university system in New York State has not become "socialized." I'm excited that someone is trying to figure out what I care about and what I want as a young American. To "luluhalls" claims that Obama "doesn't want healthcare for everyone" are totally speculative and counterproductive. Let's focus on the facts.

    his 'plan' is horrible. Its going to be the biggest pain in the butt. I love how everyone thinks this man is going to make things better. I can't wait to see what they're saying about him in 4 years.

    This is a great organization working to make sure the views of young americans (18-34) who really want health care reform take an active and organized role in the debate! YI!

    Check out

    eHealthInsurance [dot] com

    A searchable, online health insurance plan resource and exchange for individuals, families and small businesses.

    They just released data on the average cost of insurance for individuals and families nationwide.

    Average Individual Health Insurance Premiums: $161 per Month in February 2009; Average Family Health Insurance Premiums: $383 per Month in February 2009

    Despite what the narrative says, insurance IS indeed very affordable in most places around the country. Please point everyone to the site to explore their options! It seems many of the young invincibles have been pushed to inaction simply by the narrative that says individual insurance plans are prohibitively expensive. If they only knew their options, many could likely find the coverage they need!
