The health care law shifts "the cost of older and sicker patients onto young people," Schock said in the weekly Republican address, to "keep premiums from skyrocketing."
"In Washington, they call this 'community rating,' but where I come from, we call it a ripoff," he added.
Schock also blasted the Obama administration's push to market the health care law to youth with the aid of celebrity endorsements.
"No matter how many actors, and rappers, and rock stars the president rolls out, the best sales pitch in the world can’t sell a bad product," he said. "And this health care law is a bad product for young people."
