More young adults are benefiting from Obama’s Affordable Health Care plan than expected. 6.6 million young Americans were able to get under their parents health plans, creating more comfort and stability for those who are still struggling to find jobs.

Federal government surveys found that people ages 19 to 25 who didn’t have insurance significantly declined after the law was signed. The survey covered more than 1800 young adults measuring how they received insurance between November 2010 and November 2011.

Currently Republicans are working to dismantle the law, which will significantly make millions of young adults uninsured in addition to the surmounting debt that they face for school fees.

According to The Los Angeles Times,

“Nearly 2 in 5 young adults ages 19 to 29 reported a gap in health insurance in 2011, according to the survey. And 41% delayed getting needed medical care. Millions of young adults are also struggling with debt they incurred to get medical care, with one-fifth reporting they are having to pay off medical bills over time.”

If this law is revoked, millions of Americans will lose health insurance, and our entire healthcare system will be going to hell in a hand basket. Smh.
