Orange County Register

While Americans may differ about Obamacare, more 18- to 25-year-olds now have health insurance since the new law began allowing parents to continue their kids on their policies. Gallup reports that the number of 18- to 25-year-olds that are uninsured fell to 23% in the second quarter from a high of 28.7% in 2009. The new law, which lets parents continue coverage of their kids on their health plans up to age 26, took effect in September 2010.
