Protesting Obamacare

Updated: Tuesday, September 10 2013, 02:14 PM EDT
A last-ditch effort is underway to derail Obamacare.  Freedomworks, a grassroots political organization, is driven to do what neither Congress or the Supreme Court has been able to, stop the Affordable Care Act in its tracks.
   
The organization is taking the issue to the people that can break the back of the Universal Health Care Law.

The success or failure of Obamacare is in the hands of 20 somethings.

Jeff Scully, Freedomworks, "if it was such a great idea. People shouldn't be forced into it and compelled to purchase insurance."

Jeff Scully, an activist relations coordinator with Freedomworks, is helping to spearhead a national effort to burn millions of mock Obamacare cards between now and October.

While some like it other "young invincibles", 18 to 30 year olds, dislike Obamacare for lots of reasons.

And they represent the sweet spot for making Obamacare a success. Without roughly 2.7 million "young invincibles", the cost of insurance under the affordable care act will soar and that could doom Obamacare.

Vincent DeMarco, Maryland Citizen's Health Initiative, "any of us can get sick and then we are destroyed."

Vincent DeMarco heads up a large healthcare initiative, he's troubled by what he sees as politics above healthcare.

DeMarco, "it is really irresponsible for any organization to discourage people from taking advantage of benefits that may help keep them alive."

A recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that 71 percent of adults under the age of 30 value and want insurance, but they remain highly skeptical of the true cost.

Jeff Scully, Freedomworks, "there's been a big misconception about this campaign that we don't want people to have insurance and we do. If we think that a young person thinks purchasing the mandate that is best for them, they should go ahead and do it. However, we think they should be aware of the consequences of Obamacare. How its going to ration healthcare and make it more expensive."
