The Obama administration is trying to play young people for "suckers" by using celebrities and flashy advertisements to sell them the Affordable Care Act, says Evan Feinberg, president of Generation Opportunity.

"Obamacare is going to charge young, healthy people three times as much for health insurance in order to pay for an older, sicker generation's healthcare," Feinberg told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"It's why they’ve got to put all of these marketing efforts together . . . why they’ve got to get everyone from Lebron James to Amy Poehler out there to try to sell this bad deal.

"It's not a fair way to run a healthcare system . . . given that 16 percent of millennials are unemployed and about a third of us are forced to move back in with our parents during our millennial years," Feinberg said Wednesday.

Story continues below video.



Feinberg, whose group advocates economic opportunity for 18-to-29-year-olds through less government, said the "bronze" insurance policy — one of Obamacare's cheaper choices — has an average deductible of $5,000 dollars as well as an out-of-pocket cost of up to $6,500.

"The story to young people was Obamacare was going to help us, so we were the most supportive generation of any.

"But now that it's hit, now that we have seen the consequences of this law, young Americans now oppose it, with about 60 percent of the demographic opposing Obamacare 

"You can throw every pathetic marketing idea at us, you can show someone twerking or have cats signing, it does not matter. None of those things are going to convince young Americans to pay three times as much for worse healthcare."
