Question by Stalin: How do you feel about the healthcare law that makes parents keep their children on their health insurance?
This law makes parents keep their children on their health care until they are 26 and in some states 31. I don’t agree with this. I agree with 23 at the most. If you are 26 and can not support yourself that is a shame. What do you think? Of course it is different if you are helping a child that was laid off from work. This law covers married children also.
Answer by Flower
it is not mandatory. It is optional for parents to do this. Some insurance companies have started it already even though it does not really kick in until September. If you are employed with no group insurance or unemployed, instead of going to the ER and having the government pay, or getting on Medicaid and having the government pay all of your care, why not stick you in your parents insurance? As long as the adult child does not have an employee health plan you can do it. You do not have to be a student.

- Medicare Tax? Health Care for the Elderly? Let’s look at the facts about the proposed Medicare Tax … and a medical care program for the aged that already exists! What’s the hurry here? The supporters of the proposed Medicare Tax would have you believe that passage of this controversial bill is urgent … that persons over 5 are deprived of needed medical care because they can’t pay for it. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Kerr-Mills Law, passed by Congress in 1960 – enabled individual states to guarantee to every elderly person who needs help the health care he or she requires. We call this health program … Health Opportunity for the Elderly. Thousands of people every day are being helped by its generous benefits. And unlike Medicare, which would substantially increase your Social Security Tax payroll deductions, existing programs are being paid for now by a part of your present tax dollar! Medicare? NO. Health Care for the Elderly? YES! ….. 1964 American Medical Association Ad, A5157.
