If New Jersey is any indication, young people may be more likely to sign up for gambling websites than Obamacare.

Fifty thousand people signed up for New Jersey's gambling sites in the first week, compared to 741 who signed up for Obamacare during the entire month of October, according to an article posted on National Review Online.

“Younger and healthier people are making the decision — rightly or wrongly — that they are getting a better value by using some of their money, for example, in a gambling site than they are for buying health insurance which is covering things that they don’t need,”Dr. Jeff Singer, a surgeon and scholar at the Cato Institute, told Fox News.
