• “Without emptying my bank account”

    “I got scared today when I got a hospital bill in the mail, only to remember that since I’m covered on my parents’ insurance until I’m 26—meaning I could get the bill taken care of without emptying my bank account (not exaggerating on that one) to do so. Things like this are really important to a 19-year-old college student who works part time and has to save every penny for things like rent and food, especially when hospital services are so astronomically expensive.

    “So, thanks, Obamacare.”
