Regarding “Still living at home,” July 17, Page 24:

The article is about “hanging in the house longer.” These adult children have nothing to worry about. If they are forced to leave their parents’ homes, the government will take care of them: subsidized housing, food via SNAP and Food Bank support, subsidized transportation, free health care (now a right), etc.

As we read on Page 16 of the same issue in “Biden targets exemption,” almost all workers benefit from insurance company coverage of birth control and abortifacients. Parents need not feel as if they’ve failed; “adult” children understand the system perfectly.
