ObamaCare opponent: I’m still on my parents’ insurance


Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren admitted that she still benefits from a key feature of ObamaCare during a debate in which she blasted the healthcare plan.

Lahren said during a debate at Politicon Saturday with liberal comedian Chelsea Handler that she is on on her parents’ healthcare insurance. The ability to stay on your parents’ plan until 26 is a major aspect of the healthcare legislation.

“Luckily, I am 24, so I am still on my parents’ plan,” Lahren said during the debate, drawing boos from the crowd, according to The Daily Beast.

{mosads}Handler defended Lahren for the comment. 

“Stop, she is being honest,” Handler said, Variety reported.

Lahren still slammed ObamaCare as being in a “death spiral.” Extending insurance to older dependents is not typically targeted by conservatives who criticize ObamaCare for other factors such as the individual mandate to buy insurance.

Lahren joined the pro-Trump advocacy group Great America Alliance in May after she was forced out of Glenn Beck’s libertarian media outlet The Blaze after comments she made in favor of abortion access.
