As college students, our lack of substantial finances has allowed us to become the masters of Top Ramen, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and Pop Tarts. We realize we don’t always have the ability to pay for certain necessities, such as healthcare. Last year, it was reported that 27 percent of young people were uninsured, and that is not OK. A 19-year-old working at Subway for $8 an hour isn’t likely to pay hundreds of dollars a month on top of other expenses. Let’s face it, our healthcare system is designed to work against us. But that’s America for you.
