Young Adults The Key To Obamacare Success, Expect Fast And Seemless Delivery

October 16, 2013

A mixture of poor website design and overloaded servers has led to what you might call around-the-clock glitches since the Oct. 1 kickoff. With no concrete enrollment figures from HHS and no end in sight for the glitches, Consumers and investors in Obamacare-related companies are beginning to question when it’ll all end. Furthermore, Aetna’s CEO offered plenty of skepticism as to whether enough young adults would sign up to help offset the costs of enrolling older adults with more health problems. If that doesn’t happen, Obamacare wouldn’t be a profitable venture for insurers, and premiums would inevitably move much higher.

Bertolini also alluded¬† that younger adults have grown up in an era in which they’re accustomed to technology. If the system doesn’t work the first time they try it, those young adults may be less willing to give it a second chance. With that population being the key to success for Obamacare, this clearly isn’t a good sign to this major health insurance CEO.

Young adults having grown up with technology expect fast and seemless delivery.

May 31, 2011

Tens of thousands of Greeks vented their anger at the nation’s political classes in Athens on Sunday, staging the biggest in a week of protests as the government seeks backing for yet more austerity.The huge crowd packed Syntagma Square in front of the Greek parliament, booing, whistling and chanting “Thieves! Thieves” as they pointed at the assembly building.

“We’ve had enough. Politicians are making fools of us. If things stay as they are, our future will be very bleak,” said a 22-year-old student who gave his name as Nikos.

Greeks are angry no politicians have been punished for the corruption they blame for the crisis, as well as the dire state of the economy and waves of austerity demanded under the terms of a 110 billion euro ($157.5 billion) bailout from the European Union and IMF last year.

The EU wants Athens to impose yet more austerity and reform, including privatisations.
