I was the one that said the piece about the healthcare

I’ve had the discussion about what things cost on your own—I was out at 16, she’s 22 and knows that she needs it…we were without for a bit before cobra kicked in and she saw what it cost for her meds–without insurance. She also knows that 2 part time jobs without benefits will not cover all her bills and college. She is finally working towards a goal.

On the other side of the coin, I have a friend that has 2 kids that are getting ready to get phased off his insurance, both have dead end jobs, no benefits and no clue. one of them has been married/divorced and both graduated with useless degrees.
