For the Affordable Health Care Act to be viable from  a cost standpoint, enough young and healthy persons must enroll to offset the higher costs for the elderly and severely ill enrollees with preexisting conditions.

(To tune of “Young and Foolish,” by Albert Hague and Arnold B. Horwitt (1954))

Young and healthy
We need you to enroll
Young and healthy
You bring some cost control

Without all the uninsured
Who won’t be sick or ill
Obamacare becomes a poison pill

Because you’re healthy
We profit on you more
Unlike the wealthy
Whose wealth can self-insure.

To balance out the aged
To average out the cost
If we don’t have the young and healthy
We’re lost.
