Who picked ages “18-34” to study people not buying insurance? What about older healthy people?

The entire premise of Obamacare is that the 18-34 cohort -- which is the least likely to buy health insurance -- would end up paying for either a.) the low income premium subsidies with their tax penalties or b.) the discounted premiums for older healthy people.

Somebody has to pay the freight...and it was 18-34's who were nominated.

Consequently, if they don't cooperate, the scheme collapses into a pile of excrement.

That's the group that will get the least subsidy. For all age groups, the cost of Obamacare to the person or family is a function of their income (not their ages). So a younger person with the same income as an older person will be paying the same for Obamacare - although the older person gets a higher subsidy because the total cost of Obamacare is higher the older you get. Younger healthier people will be paying in at a higher rate than they do right now, use less services, and therefore subsidize the older folks.
