Law’s logic causes funny bone injury

So, let me see if I understand this Obamacare thing correctly…

Our government wants our young people to spend the money they haven’t earned from the jobs they haven’t been employed at to buy insurance coverage they don’t need at prices they can’t afford in order to subsidize the visits of everybody else to the doctors that either no longer exist or are being dropped by insurance companies. This will somehow provide faster, better, and more affordable health care for everyone in the nation.

Please excuse me. I think I need to go use my subsidies to see my doctor about some injuries sustained from laughing too hard.
