GOP Rep. Considers Bill to Allow Adult Children to Stay On Parents' Health Insurance Plans Until Age 31


Here's how radical the GOP's class of crazy Tea Party freshman in Congress actually are: A Wall Street Journal article about conflicts within the Republican party about how to move forward should ObamaCare be repealed or struck down notes that Steve Stivers, a Republican Rep. from Ohio, is considering legislation that would force health insurers to allow adult children to stay on their parents' health plans until the age of 31.

Not even ObamaCare went that far: The president's health law only required insurers to cover adult children up to the age of 26. Previous estimates indicated that ObamaCare's requirement would add to the already mounting cost of health insurance premiums; extending the age to 31 would presumably add even more.
