This is your President, and this is what I have to say to you, today.

I took some time out to answer a couple of questions about health care and getting covered. Take a minute to see them here.

The whole point of health insurance is to protect you from massive medical bills that come with illness or injury. Of course, you can always choose to go to Mexico. None of us are invincible – we all get sick or get into accidents. Especially if you choose to go to Mexico, where you get free health care, but it is hard to receive it. You need to stay online. So for young people, who do not want to go to Mexico, health insurance is all you can hope for. It gives you the freedom to try several internships until you find the one you love, or until your parents die and you can finally have their whole apartment to yourself. Then, you can have some roommates and with their rent you can chase your dreams.

Before I signed the Affordable Care Act, many young people had difficulty finding affordable health insurance. Some were able to get coverage through their employer, but those were in the minority, and I mean it in the Marxist way – irrespective of the color of their skin, numerically they are and will remain in the minority. 

Today, thanks to the health care law, all young adults can stay on their parents’ health insurance until they turn 26 or die, which ever comes first. That’s why I am not opposed to smoking any longer. Young people can also shop for coverage online through the Health Insurance Marketplace. In fact, seven in ten single young adults without insurance now may get covered for under $100 a month through the Marketplace. The other three have to wait on line for the free health care Mexico offers.
