34,532 Young Oregonians Should Thank the Healthcare Act

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Tue, Jun 19, 2012 at 12:59 PM

34,532.

That's the number of Oregonians age 19 to 25 who gained health insurance from September 2010 to June 2011, thanks to the Affordable Healthcare Act extending dependent coverage up to age 26.

It's easy to get bogged down in the complicated specifics of the giant healthcare bill. But looking at simple numbers like that, I can't see any way to argue that the healthcare bill is bad for America. Fingers crossed that the Supreme Court agrees.
