‘Young People Hate the Mandate!’: Tucker Carlson Battles Democratic Rep Over Obamacare

On tonight’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight, host Tucker Carlson locked horns with Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) about Obamacare and why Democrats are fighting to keep it intact.

Throughout the conversation, Carlson kept trying to get Himes to explain why the Affordable Care Act wasn’t popular with the voting public while highlighting that it is going through a death spiral in several states, with Himes countering that portions of the law are very popular along with Medicaid and Medicare.

At one point, the conversation turned to young adults and the idea of the mandate, which Himes noted that Republicans and Tucker hated.

“Young people hate the mandate,” Carlson retorted.

The two went back and forth for a while longer over the pros and cons of Obamacare.
