    But just think how good you will feel at night before you go to bed knowing you paid for some crack whore and her baby.

    Isn't this the America everyone wants? The Founders should be so proud.

    We already pay for the crack ho and her baby. Now we will be paying for the able bodied 26 year old who prefers to live in his parent's basement and paint pretty pictures...

    Did you catch the Stossel special last night. About being a nation of Makers and Takers? It would blow your circuits.

    You know it's a fucked up, ineffective economic model as soon as it says "State AG allows..."

    I don't mind a good argument for or against anything. But the stupid statements I read here on a daily basis are just amazing. Please tell me how "we" will be paying for any 26 year old's healthcare due to the new health legislation. The legislation allows for anyone up to 26 years of age to be included on their parent's health plan. It doesn't say that they get FREE COVERAGE. Their premiums must still be paid, and in most cases, it will be by the parents. The likely outcome of this portion of the healthcare bill is that more 26 year olds will be paying into the system, and since 26 year olds are at a stage in life where they are mostly healthy, there will be few claims made by these paying policy holders. Of course, their rates will be lower than the rates of a 45 or 55 year old, because of the fact that they will have less claims.

    The bottom line is that their parents will be paying their premiums, not you. Duh!!! :cuckoo:
