The Wall Street Journal:
About 6.6 million young adults signed up for health coverage through their parents' insurance plans in the first year after a new provision in the federal health law took effect, according to estimates in a study released Friday.
As part of the law, most insurance plans offered by employers to their workers had to allow parents to enroll dependents on their plans up to the age of 26, starting in September 2010. Previously, parents had been able to include children only up to their 19th birthdays, or until the age of 22 if the children were full-time college students.
Well that is 6.6 million Americans (Not to mention their parents) who are going to be a little hard to convince that the Affordable Care Act is the horrible policy that the Republicans keep insisting that it is.
Add to that list the number of Americans with preexisting conditions that are no longer being turned away, and I think we are starting to see people discovering that, despite the attempts by the Republicans and their propagandists at Fox News to make this program out to be akin to Hitler marching Jews into the ovens, it is in fact a very positive step in addressing the health care needs of the our citizens.
Now if only the Supreme Court does not throw out all or part of the Affordable Care Act I think it may prove to be a net positive when it comes to the November election.
