Random thoughts on SCHIP and adult children

SCHIP is, for those who don’t know, is the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. Under changes enacted in 2010 by the Unicorn and Skittles Obama Administration, parents can keep their children on their insurance until the “children” are at most 26 years old.

Since we’re now defining childhood to last through age 26, shouldn’t we…

  • Raise the voting age to 27?
  • Require parental consent to marry for anyone 26 and below?
  • Require parental consigning for any contracts the “children” may undertake?
  • Prohibit alcohol purchases to anyone 26 and younger?

I  mean, if we’re going to be giving college-age and in-the-workforce adults the benefits of being children, shouldn’t we treat them as children?

    How about excluding children under the age of 26 from R-rated movies? Then the organic matter would REALLY hit the ventilating device.
