Senate Bill Ensures Rights for 26-year olds

They can drink alcohol, vote, and go to war but recent health care legislation relieves twenty-six year olds of the responsibility of paying for health insurance. And now, if Senate Bill 1620 becomes law, they will be entitled to a weekly allowance from their parents, no "time outs" and free ice cream.

"It's a way of saying 'thank you' to the twenty-somethings who voted for me," said President Obama.

Critics call the bill "condescending to our young adults" but a co-sponsor of the bill said that he was "outraged by the suggestion that free ice cream could be demagogued by those on the right."
