Statement of Heather Smith, President, Rock the Vote
In Response to Press Conference with Speaker Pelosi and Youth Organizations
Washington, DC - October 13, 2009
“Rock the Vote is pleased that the final House bill will include a key provision that will help make health insurance affordable, competitive, continuous, comprehensive and fair for young Americans. Allowing young adults to stay on their parents' insurance policies until the age of 27 could immediately cover over one third of uninsured young people in America. We are going to take the momentum from today's victory and work with the House and Senate to ensure that the final health care reform package is a good deal for young people."
