The question is whether you will still be under 26 four years from now-- that is when the bill takes effect. The only way they could get the CBO numbers to look like it 'only costs less than a trillion dollars' was to play a little trick with the numbers. The extra 4% payroll tax, AND the extra tax on capital gains (specifically, if a person sells his house at a profit, he now pays another 4% for a new 'health care tax' on the profit), take effect immediately, but the other parts of the bill-- i.e. the benefits-- don't start for 4 years. If they instead started the tax and the benefit together, the cost would have been estimated at over twice as much. That is why the cost is projected to 'balloon' in ten years, even if the fantasy plays out-- that regulators are going to 'cut $500 billion out of medicare by getting rid of waste'-- something that theoretically was going on all along.

This is one of the areas of frustration for those opposed to the bill-- people will ALWAYS pick 'something for nothing' over 'nothing for nothing'. But the joke this time around is that we are all getting 'nothing for SOMETHING' this time around, at least for the next four years!

really i know some things dont go into effect years down the rd and no i wont be 26 then, and even if it dont im still in favor of this bill and health care reform could have been alot better with a public option. Had no idea about the 26 thing untill i happened to see it on cnn, first thing i have heard about it, just saw it on a little head line at the bottom as much as i watched on health care figured i would have seen more about be on your parents insurance til 26 thing. Although i am enrolloed in school to might have to check online and see what immediate changes there will be and when everything else kicks in

The provision that lets young adults stay on their parent's insurance takes effect immediately.

ya thats what i thought i actually tried to put a post were i found that out online but for some reason it didnt post. But anyway guess we know were the dr stands on health care reform lol. Honestly dont know who would oppose health care reform but then again im a liberal democrat so im for a public option which should have been in this bill but the dems can never get there shit together. I swear we let the gop run this country into the ground for 8 years and they did whatever they dam well pleased and guess what they should have they got elected. So i wish the dems would just start doin what they want cause thats y they got elected to run the show. The gop had there chance and failed miserably so the dam repblicans need to get out of the way and let obama do his thing sorry for the rant i just hate right-winged religious crazys lol
