    Prior to Obamacare, I was losing sleep on that one.

      young people who are no longer on their parents' policies used to have great difficulty obtaining insurance they could afford or obtaining any insurance whatsoever. It is enabling a friend's daughter to go to grad school because otherwise she would have to work retail fulltime to get insurance and put off grad school for years.

      is another benefit from the ACA.

      Thanks, Obama and Democrats! No thanks to a single f*#!ing Republican.
