Megan McArdle, writing for Boomberg View, theorizes that the number of young people enrolling in Obamacare required to keep the health insurance market from entering a “death spiral” will not be met. She notes that as of March 1st, 4,242,325 had chosen a plan on the Obamacare exchanges, but only 1,075,990 of them were between the ages of 18 and 35. That’s barely 25% of those who had enrolled.
