Tweet of the Day: White House touts misleading low youth Obamacare sign-up numbers as a victory...
The actual number is 24% of under 35 signed up for private coverage according to Reuters, not 30%. I guess the White House threw in the total numbers including those who signed-up for free Medicaid. Those youth won't help defray the costs of the older sicker enrollees.
