Republican Congressman Jack Kingston (GA-1) spoke out Friday against a popular part of President Obama's new healthcare law. He was critical of the provision that allows children to remain on their parents' health insurance until they're 26.
In a speech on the floor of the U.S. House, Kingston said, "I want to say this about 26 year old children. As a father of 4 and I have three kids under 26 years. They don't need the nanny-state coming in. I have raised them to be responsible and at the age of 21 I expect them to go out and get their healthcare."
Kingston represents Telfair and Wheeler Counties in the 41NBC coverage area.
