    Do you agree with the USA government that permits a child to stay on their parents insurance until

    they reach the age of 26? Pondering this, do you believe that the USA government should not permit any individual to receive welfare until they reach the age of 26?  Or, should those under 26 staying on the parents insurance be considered minors? Or, should those under 26 on their parents insurance not be permitted to drive without adult supervision? Or, should those that remain on their parents insurance be required to attend a "School for the Frail"?  This is where discrimination by the USA government exists. What can be done to make it fair for those not staying on the parents insurance?

    Since when is someone a child at 26?  If someone is 26 and still in need of a parent they have a problem.  We are turning Americans into infants.  Too many already depend on the property taken from ADULTS and given to them by the government, now we want to enable all people to remain children until 26. 

    An 18 year old just sued her parents for support when she should have been slapped and told to get a job.  While the brutes of the world hand their 12 year olds AK-47s, we hand our adults a crutch, an excuse and a government supplied pacifier.

    All of your questions are legitimate. I hate to answer a question with a question, but, if parents didn't create this class of helpless "kids" would the government even be involved in all of these decisions. The government is not keeping these people as kids until they are 26. The parents are. If I were a government official, (which, thank goodness I'm not) I wouldn't know who to address let alone what to address. It's not totally old fashioned to say at that age, the thought of living off my parents was repulsive. I wanted my independence. I wanted to find my own way. Sure, I screwed up and they were there to help bail me out when needed, but they allowed me to make mistakes. It's part of maturing.
         That's not that many years ago when we graduated from high school, we used to say that it's time to go out into the real world. Now we are talking about 26? Seems like the real world is getting smaller all the time.
