Republicans claim to be the party of personal responsibility. They don’t need Obamacare, they can take care of themselves, right?
Which is why it is ironic that a poll found that significantly more Republicans are taking advantage of the provision of Obamacare that requires insurance plans to insure children up to the age of 26.
How significant? According to the poll, 63% of young Republicans had taken advantage of the new option to stay on their parent’s plan, while only 45% of young Democrats had done so.
Not asked by the poll was whether those Republicans who are benefiting from Obamacare still want to repeal it. But I would venture to guess that they do. After all, other polls have consistently shown that even people who say they want to repeal Obamacare, when asked about the individual key provisions of the bill, are strongly in favor of them.
