Rosy view can’t hide Obamacare’s flaws

Shame on the Globe for stating in last Sunday’s front-page story about Obamacare that the law’s long-term success is dependent on the premium payments of young adults such as Alisson Wood (“Out of health-care furor, satisfaction”).

Wood, with annual income of less than $15,000, will pay nothing for her health care coverage, so she will do nothing but further imperil the already tenuous foundation of this highly flawed law.

Of course, showing the effect of the law on a more successful young adult would have punctured the myth of the piece — it cited four cases, each of which resulted in lower premiums — where everyone wins with Obamacare.
