On Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, guest Michelle Obama said, “Well, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, young people can stay on their parents’ insurance until they’re 26. But once they hit 26, they’re on their own. And a lot of young people think they’re invincible. But the truth is, young people are knuckleheads. You know? They’re the ones who are cooking for the first time and slice their finger open. They’re dancing on the bar stool. But while young people think they’re invisible, they’re not. . . and before they couldn’t get healthcare because they couldn’t afford it and now young people can get insurance for as little as fifty dollars a month.”

Last month, The Washington Post reported that young people are not signing up for Obamacare at nearly the rate that is needed in order for the law to be a success.
