Letter: Young Americans should sign up for health care
First Published Feb 21 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Feb 21 2014 01:01 am

Hey parents, aunts, uncles, brother, sisters out there, get your 20- and 30-somethings to sign up for health insurance on HealthCare.gov! That’s if you want the health insurance you just signed up for to keep you covered in the style to which you hope to become accustomed.

My payments were just reduced by $500 a month and I want to keep it that way, but being kidless, I need the rest of you to get your offspring off their duffs and pulling their weight so all of us, (old fogies and young pipsqueaks alike) can make the "health care is not a privilege but a right" mantra to be a dream come true.

Time’s running out, and you never know when life might turn on a dime. Deadlines for signing up are still to come, so ... Go!
