A public opponent of health care for everyone, is going to be fine. They have their parent's coverage.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA or 'Obamacare') included a payment system that paid roughly $7bn USD per year in subsidies paid directly to health insurers in order to lower the cost of low income customers.

These payments are due to end on Monday.

On Saturday, the Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren was interviewed by the liberal comedian Chelsea Handler at Politicon Saturday conference.

During a discussion about Republican failures to properly repeal and replace the ACA, or even do it by piecemeal, as was attempted this weekend, Lahren revealed her health care is covered.

The Daily Beast reported that the 24-year-old said:

Luckily, I am 24, so I am still on my parents' plan.

Boos from the crowd allegedly greeted this revelation.

Stop, she is being honest.

Is what Handler said, according to Variety.

Handler had stressed to the crowd that she was not debating Lahren, but interviewing her.
