    New "Reform" Law Attacks Marriage

    Yup, that's right. If you were fired up about the gay marriage issue, you should be mad as heck at this. The new healthcare "reform" is bad for a lot of reasons, but this attack on marriage should concern us all.

    What happens when young adults have to choose between marriage or healthcare insurance? That is the choice coming soon to a couple near you.

    In the first few pages the law indicates that adults, up to age 26, can remain on their parents' healthcare insurance policy. The catch is that the individual must remained unmarried to recieve the benefit.

    According to the State of Michigan, 42% of men and 58% of women get married between the ages of 20 and 24. But what happens to that rate if the couple involved wants to stay on their parents' healthcare insurance until age 26?

    Will they be more likely to live together first? Only time will tell, but the new law gives young people an incentive to remain unmarried and live together instead. If that happens, those same couples are more likely to either not marry or get divorced if they do marry, at least according to a study quoted in the New York Times.

    Help us fight back against the healthcare "reform". Go to www.michiganhcf.com and request a petition to circulate. We need you to stand shoulder to shoulder with us as we fight back. Join us!
