Obama forgot to tell the young that they'd be paying for ObamaCare
According to Ron Fournuier, the very respected political analyst, the young people are parting ways with President Obama:
"Young Americans are turning against Barack Obama and Obamacare, according to a new survey of millennials, people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are vital to the fortunes of the president and his signature health care law.
The most startling finding of Harvard University's Institute of Politics: A majority of Americans under age 25--the youngest millennials--would favor throwing Obama out of office.
The survey, part of a unique 13-year study of the attitudes of young adults, finds that America's rising generation is worried about its future, disillusioned with the U.S. political system, strongly opposed to the government's domestic surveillance apparatus, and drifting away from both major parties. "Young Americans hold the president, Congress and the federal government in less esteem almost by the day, and the level of engagement they are having in politics are also on the decline," reads the IOP's analysis of its poll. "Millennials are losing touch with government and its programs because they believe government is losing touch with them.""
My guess is that "the chickens have come to roost" for President Obama:
First, the young can not find jobs.
Second, many have expensive worthless degrees, as my friend Aaron Clarey wrote about.
Third, and most important, nobody told them that they would be paying higher premiums to finance ObamaCare.Instead, the young were told at 'yes we can" and 'si se puede" rallies that the rich would pay higher taxes.
