It is about demographics, young don't need it and don't want to pay for it. The old need it but need the young to be in the pool to keep premiums lower.

Young USians don't "need" Social Security or Medicare, right now, but pay into it. They will need it eventually, and be glad for being in a very large pool that keeps their premiums down.

Show the young people what insurance would cost them when they are old phartz, if they are in a pool of nothing but old phartz.
