Trump budget would undo Obama’s massive student loan forgiveness program for the wealthy

Liberals are jumping on President Donald Trump’s budget and its proposed student loan reform. In particular, they are bemoaning the elimination of the “public service loan forgiveness” program. If you read the headlines, they accuse Trump of slashing and burning a program that benefits well-meaning students. Those criticisms are exaggerated. In reality, this program benefits […]

Despite not knowing a darn thing about it, 66% of millennials oppose Trump budget

Just like Congress passes bills before they know what’s in them, millennials are passing judgement on President Donald Trump’s budget before the full details are known and understood.

Oh no, millennials are petitioning to start “National Millennial Day”

Two millennials’ attempt to battle negative millennial stereotypes not only reinforces millennial stereotypes — it will probably backfire and become a joke.

Is college worth it? Because student loan debt is crushing the American Dream

A new study from TD Ameritrade should serve as a stunning wake-up call to policymakers, but if their previous action is any indication, this report may be ignored.

Biggest economic crisis since 2008: America’s millennial cost of living gap

Rand is right: Obamacare replacement needs liberty to lower costs

Republicans should be happy the House finally voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) will lower premiums and health care costs, especially for economically challenged young Americans. The deficit will be much lower, and the government will no longer coerce you to buy insurance. This replacement is much, much better […]

AHCA passes: Democrats abandon young Americans, demand we pay more

Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi and those who voted against the American Health Care Act (AHCA) luckily failed in their attempts to force vulnerable young Americans to pay more for health insurance coverage.

Harvard: 61% of young Democrats aren’t friends with any Trump voters

A Harvard Institute of Politics (IOP) poll shows 59 percent of young Americans, crossing party lines, want to “unite, not further divide, America.” Yet, in the same poll, it shows young Democrats aren’t doing their part in building relationships with people across the political aisle.

What happened at the conservative media reception with President Trump

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but like all things Trump, it was entertaining. But it was also informative, and by informative, I mean more than just newsworthy. It was my first time in the White House. They gathered us in the Press Briefing Room (yes, it’s as tiny and dingy as they say it […]

Trump: Syria has “stockpile” of chemical weapons

At an invitation-only press reception for conservative media, President Donald Trump confirmed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has what Trump called a “stockpile” of chemical weapons.

Data: Higher minimum wage costs San Diego 4,000 restaurant jobs

Young workers tend to love the idea of higher minimum wage laws — until they lose their job. This famously happened in Seattle, when pizza shop worker Devin Jeran was excited about the new $15 minimum wage, until he found out it cost him his job. Now, thousands may be joining Jeran down in San […]
