Drop in Uninsured Young Adults

Parents may have one less reason to worry about their kids. The number of young adults, ages 18 to 25, with health insurance has jumped by about 1 million over the past year, defying the trend of almost every other demographic group. President Obama's health-care law, which allows young people to use their parents' health-insurance plan until age 26, is presumably behind this increase. Such expanded coverage may be short-lived, though, as House Republicans aim to repeal Obama's law.
