FACT CHECK TIME! Here's what our fact checkers found:

Young people can stay on their parents' insurance until age 26, and 3.1 million young people have done just that. Folks can shop for health insurance via online exchanges. There is indeed a penalty for not having insurance. And 60% of all bankruptcies are from medical bills.
