Comments: ObamaCare: Kids Have to all Move Home

Or, as the WaPo should have responded:

Dear Mrs. Fluke...

I consider myself generous, possibly to the point of over-indulgence, with my children. I can't imagine ever denying them, even as adults, if they're stuck in a situation where they actually need help, particularly with something as important as health care. That said, I'll consider myself a failure as a parent if, at 24, either of them demands that I continue paying for their health insurance and implicitly threatens me with legal repercussions.

On the other hand, it's refreshing to see a young adult expecting mommy and daddy to pay her bills rather than getting Uncle Sugar to force me to.

Really Andy? By my reading, she expects Uncle Sugar to force mommy and daddy. I sincerely doubt she gives a rip who is forced into involuntary servitude on her behalf, just so's someone is.

But I wholeheartedly agree with your first paragraph: Lefty parents, think twice before raising entitlement-addled children. The pocket they pick as an adult may be your own.
