    Regarding the above quote it is impossible to state that who is responsible for this thing, either the government or the college administrators. Moreover people are left with nothing but just to blame the situation, that what was the purpose of taking such decision for which people may face problem.

    Only the beginning, if the SCOTUS doesn't overturn Obombacare - we will see wholesale insurance cancellations all over.
    Once again the left will create more problems than what they were trying to solve.

    The students who are 26 and under can get their healthcare insurance under their parents healthcare plan.
    The University did fire a professor because of his views on birth control decades ago via the Vatican, so obviously the University's decision regarding contraceptive is consistent with their historical philosophy.

    Not necessarily. (My emphasis)
    Most plans only cover the child if no other plans are available to them...no matter how bad.
    We went through this last year with my daughter. While in college (and still is) she was working part-time as a waitress for a franchise chain. They offered expensive/terrible insurance that covered practically nothing. We had to choose between her quitting her job or losing health insurance.
    She quit her job. Another victim of Obamacare. Punished for having a job.

    Personally, I think it's by design. They want this to happen.

    Yes Obamacare taxing companies that do not offer insurance is totally going to result in less companies offering insurance.
    You idiots would blame Obamacare for the BP oil spill of some dumbass republcian told you so

    The tax is cheaper than the insurance, the cost of which is still increasing despite the passage of the legislation.

    Yes the tax is cheaper than the insurance but before the tax it was even more cheaper.
    Furthermore health care spending is now increasing at its lowest rate a decade, and all estimates and analysis of Obamacare show it reducing costs
