U of M Students React to Supreme Court Ruling
University of Minnesota students say they were following the Supreme Court ruling Thursday.
It impacts millions of young adults, who can stay on their parents' health insurance until the age of 26.
Students we spoke with say they are glad the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act.
Ella Coben says many students come out of school with debt, and many graduates can't find work that provides a health plan.
Most students we talked to are currently covered by their parents' plan, but the university also provides coverage.
It says 10,000 students are currently enrolled in the university-sponsored plan.
Generation Opportunity, a Washington D.C. based non profit group seeking to engage young people, is opposed to the Supreme Court ruling.
It issued a statement saying, "President Obama's health care law stands as one of the largest tax increases in American history. It will be paid for by young Americans, whose dreams and plans for the future have already been derailed by failed policies that have denied their access to full-time, meaningful jobs in their chosen career paths."
