His statement is a lie, of course. Forbes writer Avik Roy also writes this inconvenient truth today:
“many 27-year-olds will face steep increases in the underlying cost of individually-purchased insurance under Obamacare.

Obamacare is a disaster. Oh, and Ted Cruz’s filibuster is giving the GOP room to negotiate. Imagine that.
