Concerned Women for America are concerned again! While months ago the group's conservative activists were concerned about Miley Cyrus' butt in relation to Robin Thicke's crotch, they are now concerned about young people opting into a program that will actually help them afford health insurance.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, CWA spokeswoman Alison Howard warned “young subsidizers” against signing up for a "government-run program that’s a complete fail.” (Way to connect with your target audience through the use of BuzzFeed millennial speak, Alison Howard! #WINNING)

Howard urged listeners to use the time they are not getting health insurance to "continue to pray for our nation's leaders, that they have wisdom and clarity of how to fix this very broken problem and help us completely heal as a country."

Because true healing means never having health insurance, of course.
