    "I've got Mine!"

    But the real issue here is how Lawrence thinks ObamaCare will be "embraced." The paper quotes a couple of Rutgers student:

    Alan Leal, a School of Arts and Sciences junior, said he thought younger people are less informed on the issue of health care.

    “Promoting this issue more directly and in simpler terms, as well as presenting the information in a hipper way, would be helpful,” he said.

    Write the "creative class" a check for those cool "navigator" web sites! *

    Donte Bronaugh, a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore, said if the act had not passed, he would not have health insurance under his parent’s program after college.

    “If I didn’t get a job after I graduated, I wouldn’t have had insurance,” he said. “Now I can do other things like go to [graduate] school.”

    And there you have it. Because pragmatism! No solidarity at all; it's exactly the same "I've got mine!" that Obama supporters deploy. I really don't blame Bronaugh for this; but I do blame Obama supporters for actively selling policies that throw the rest of us under the bus, and leading kids like Bronaugh astray. But 'twas ever thus!

    I hate the idea that the administration's cynical, corrupt, and unkind view of human nature could prevail.

    NOTE * Especially the ones who work for DFA?

    As I said above, the early benefits were targeted.  The real costs come in later.
