In reading what key elements kick in today as the nation's new health law turns six months old: One element states: "parents can keep their adult children on their health plans until age 26." As a parent of two college kids, I am truly thankful for this.

With gratitude, this entry now appears on my Twitter page and my Facebook.com page: MaryMacElveen Thank you, Pres. Obama and Dems: My two college children will now be insured until the age of 26. Thanks for the breathing room!

In an email attached to this entry, I included these sentiments: "And the Tea Party/GOPers want to repeal this? These evil people paint Pres. Obama, Senate Majority Reid and Speaker Pelosi as being anti-American"No, they proved to me that my two children can now have the freedom to see a doctor and if God forbid need to be hospitalized, they are covered. If the Tea Party/GOPers have their way my children's lives are at stake. This is not exactly in keeping with "pro-life' values in letting college kids die because of a lack of healthcare."

If you are an American citizen who is currently insured and do have college-age children, they will be covered under your policy until the age of 26. They will no longer be kicked off it after college graduation.

While this new health law is far from perfect, you have President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker Nancy Pelosi to thank for this most generous gift.

Yet, the Tea Party/Republican Party wishes to repeal this new health law if they take back congress? If you are a parent this should inflame you. As a parent whose sole purpose is to protect your children: just how can you vote for any of these Tea Party Republicans?
