The new healthcare law that may or may not be repealed has the stipulation that kids are covered until they're 26, why 26? are we really still kids at 26?

Technically, it's to get us through a little extra time in college, I'd presume. Accommodate post grad school and all this.

However, yes, certain recent neurological studies suggest that our brain continues developing well into our 26th year.

Forcing a company to cover ANYBODY is ridiculous.

If people think the state should gaurantee people's access to healthcare... then the state should steal from people more Evenly/appropriately (through taxation) and use the money to pay for their coverage.

Rather than Force particular private groups/individuals (like Insurance companies) to do things.

I agree. Typically when you're a full time college student you don't have time for a full time job and that means no employer health insurance. By extending coverage a parent's policy, the law is basically to ensure that you have health insurance while you're going to school (ages 18-26) to prepare for your full time career.

Under that rationale we shouldn't allow individuals 26 and under to do drugs, vote, enlist in the army, etc. For fear of hurting their developing mind.

You can enlist at 17 and do drugs from infancy.
