    •  but, as they put it ... for example forced (0+ / 0-)

      coverage of kids under 26 - and other provisions raised the costs. But, at most dinner tables, families have no problem with any increase in cost in exchange for protecting the health of young people ....

      Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....

      •  That's not why they did it (0+ / 0-)

        People 23 to 26 are among the least likely to raise the costs.  They did it to "bend the cost curve" by restricting coverage by making it more expensive.
