When it comes to their choice in Democratic candidates, many millennials are going for Bernie Sanders. And it’s not hard to see why in some ways.

For many, youth underemployment and unemployment is a sad reality.

Hidden Cost of ‘Under 26’ Obamacare Mandate: Every worker loses $1,200

Thanks, Obamacare

  Kids are expensive – even when those kids are 26. One of the most popular features of ObamaCare was the so-called “dependent-care mandate,” the rule requiring insurers to cover adult children up to age 26.  This was supposed to be a modest change to help cover more people inexpensively. Yet, a new working paper […]

It’s no secret that the DC metro system, WMATA, flat out sucks. And so it should come as no shock that, as the Washington Business Journal reported, most millennials drive to work, and most do so alone. This may very well have to do with WMATA, since when asked about the DC metro, respondents described it […]

Tuesday night marked President Obama’s last State of the Union address. With the president in his last year in office and with him being a lame duck, the speech wasn’t so much a laundry list of proposals this year. Rather, it was an actual State of the Union, or at least Obama’s disjointed opinion of the […]

During the lively CNN GOP debate on Tuesday, many candidates took on Donald Trump’s position of securing the southern border, but Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was able to copy the billionaire’s ideas and make him the butt of his joke. During a conversation about immigration Cruz said he will build a wall, but he’ll get […]

Just about every millennial has heard someone say, “watch what you post on social media, you never know who’s watching.” That’s true —  unless you’re an immigrant applying for a visa. In that case, post whatever you want because Homeland Security isn’t looking. ABC News reported that DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson decided not to end a […]

Millennials say American Dream is Dead? They killed it

(Associated Press)

A Harvard poll this week showed that 48 percent of millennials (ages 18-to-29) think “the American Dream” is dead. They are right. The American Dream is dying — and millennials poisoned it. The last eight years have been worse economically for young people than any eight years since the Great Depression. And, one could argue […]

Young people are the foot soldiers of change. We have the passion, fewer responsibilities competing for time, and as William Pitt said in the movie Amazing Grace, “…we’re too young to realize certain things are impossible. Which is why we will do them anyway.” But many young people fall into the pit of passion without […]

MTV names generation “The Founders,” but it should be Generation PC

MTV recently had the audacity to name the youngest generation “The Founders” — a slap in the face to the real founders of our nation, as well as a bizarrely inaccurate description of young Americans. MTV’s President Sean Atkins explained the decision, telling reporters, “They have this self-awareness that systems have been broken… But they can’t be the generation that […]

For the past four years I have waited in limbo as the Food and Drug Administration sought to finalize their rules on a national menu labeling standard that was tucked away in the 2,000-plus page Obamacare. This regulation requires restaurants with 20 or more locations to label in-store menu boards with calorie information. Along with […]
