    So idiotic to want your child to be covered in case of a health emergency, huh?

    If you paid for it, you should get it.

    Then again, the compassionate party for some stupid reason thinks it's compassionate to use people for the benefit of others
    It's even more absurd that compassionate conservatives wouldn't want the 'free riders' to buy their own health insurance, instead of forcing taxpayers to pay for their health care.....

    A 26 year old is not a child and should not be treated as one. If they have a health emergency they need to pay for it like everyone else.

    What does that have to do with anything? There is a good chance a twenty-six year old has kids of their own and you're sitting here supporting the idea that they should still be supported by their parents. At what point do you think a parent should cut their kids lose? Never? Just support them like they're still children until the day you die? That's ****ed up man.

    That makes you jealous? That people with catastrophic illness get treatment? Do you want to trade places with them?
    I wonder how the mind works sometimes.

    I don't support forcing taxpayers to pay for other peoples healthcare needs.

    That is the stupidest ****ing article I have seen in a while. How is forcing people into commerce freedom? WTF is wrong with the author of that article? Interestingly enough, this whole free-rider problem is a government creation.

    Well why not? When you've deregulated business to the point that everything we buy is made in Bangladesh, then a few young people are going to find there's no work out there for them and will have no choice but to stay at home or become homeless.

    Using "liberal" as a pejorative is not a way to get anyone to actually listen to you.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I have no reason to respond to your post seriously as if there is no jobs in the US and somehow that is the free markets fault or that it was caused by deregulation as if that even begins to make sense in an environment where new regulations are constantly being imposed on businesses.

    As I said, a twenty-six year old is an adult and should be treated as one. Their healthcare needs are no longer the responsibility of their parents. A good parent would not be paying any bills for their kids when they are twenty-six years old. They would expect them to pay their own way or deal with the consequences.
