GW students thought 26 was too young to find your own health insurance.

Individuals should be allowed to stay on their parent's healthy insurance for as long as they like, students at the George Washington University told Campus Reform last week. 

“As long as it takes for you to get your own,” one student said.

“As long as it takes for you to get your own,” one student said.   

Others said their should be some limit, but set it much higher than the current limit, which is 26.

“If you’re 40 and you can’t provide for yourself but your parents’ health insurance does, I don’t see why you shouldn’t be on it,” one said.

One interviewee originally set the limit at 21, but then changed her answer because she didn’t want to disagree with President Obama.

"I didn't know Obama changed it to 25," she said. "I think 25 is great."
