In Our Opinion: Young adults should opt for Obamacare

(Continued)

Maybe? What kind of answer is that? Well, never mind. Did you know that the Department of Health and Human Services — which administers the Affordable Care Act — announced on Tuesday that it will extend the deadline for people who try to apply through the federal marketplace but encounter problems?

Yes, that’s right, the Affordable Care Act is Obamacare. Did you know that most people your age who don’t have a lot of money are eligible for health care subsidies?

What’s that? You accidentally stumbled across a news website, and people — you think most of them are Republicans — are saying bad things about Obamacare? Well, sure, it can be improved; even the president has said that. But it’s the law of the land and it’s not going away any time soon. Besides, it’s offering you inexpensive, subsidized health care.

You’ll think about signing up?

Well, good for you.
