In Response to Obamacare: Are The Mellinnials Wising Up?:
The battle is being fought across smart phones, social media and Internet sites by organizations such as Generation Opportunity, a self-described “free-thinking, liberty-loving, national organization of young people promoting the best of being American.” Generation Opportunity sponsors OptOut.org, where visitors can watch videos of a Creepy Uncle Sam trying to get unsuspecting youth to enroll in ObamaCare.The group plans to spread its message using SnapChat — an app that allows users to see photos or videos sent to them only for a brief instant before disappearing. It’s precisely the kind of tech-savvy movement once associated with Team Obama.

Just so we know, "Generation Opportunity" (who comes up with these Orwellian gems?) is another front group funded by the Koch brothers. Nice to know that a couple of filthy rich old men who will never worry about medical bills are spending millions to persuade young people they don't need insurance.
"Generation Opportunity, a nonprofit financed with $5.04 million from a fund controlled by the Koch brothers’ lobbying team, just launched a new television advertisement to kick off an anti-Obamacare campaign. The ads, which provides no actual information about healthcare reform and instead seem designed to scare people away from doctor visits, have already been dissected by many in the media. What’s more revealing is Generation Opportunity’s real agenda, which was explained to Yahoo News in a story unveiling the new campaign (emphasis added):
Their message: You don’t have to sign up for Obamacare. “What we’re trying to communicate is, ‘No, you’re actually not required to buy health insurance,’” Generation Opportunity President Evan Feinberg told Yahoo News in an interview about the campaign. “You might have to pay a fine, but that’s going to be cheaper for you and better for you.”
So, the big idea here is that young people should decline health insurance? Having no health insurance is “better for you?” When a car accident happens, or someone is sent to the hospital needing critical care, who picks up the bill? For slash-and-burn Koch groups, that doesn’t seem to matter."
