CBS Spins: ObamaCare Will 'Work Out', But 'Math Does Not Work' Without Youth

From the 28 September 2013 edition of CBS This Morning:

GOSSELIN: It'll [ObamaCare will] be a lot like shopping for anything online on Amazon. You'll look at the different health insurance plans that are offered in your area and you'll pick the one that works best for you and your family and you'll hit 'buy'.

The theory behind the bill is it's good for America if everybody's covered.

From the 30 September 2013 edition of CBS This Morning:

JILL SCHLESINGER: You know what's interesting, is this is really like going to shop for a flight on Travelocity. You're going to a place; you're comparing cost; you're choosing coverage. That's what you need to know. This is all starting tomorrow.

NORAH O'DONNELL But Jill, you make it sound so easy. There have been so many reports of glitches already....

SCHLESINGER: ...Look, this plan has get young, healthy people in it, or else the math does not work.

ROSE: And if there's a government shutdown?

SCHLESINGER: We're open for business at the Affordable Care Act. The reason is, that this is a funded program. So, everything will work tomorrow – hopefully, as planned. Yes, there will be technical glitches, but everyone – this thing will work out all right. Don't worry.
