The young, skull full of mush, “lady parts” voters with their breast implants and popeye tattoos made up the difference with their demands for free condoms and birth control pills. The “Little Princess” vote.
Baloney. Support for contraception is extremely strong from the ‘tune in, turn on, drop out’ generation.
“The young, skull full of mush, lady parts voters with their breast implants and popeye tattoos made up the difference with their demands for free condoms and birth control pills. The Little Princess vote.”
Yes, Obama planned on the votes of the young. He knows that he will have to cut Medicare further than the billions he has taken from Medicare already and ration healthcare. Obama will have an ally in those further cuts in this same large segment of young people in sending off granny with a sleeping pill.

Jenkins: None Dare Call It Default
A nicer term for what’s about to sock the middle class is ‘entitlement reform.’
A few years ago, when the economy was humming, a common estimate held that federal taxes would have to rise 50% immediately to fully fund entitlement programs. Today, a 50% tax increase would be needed just to meet the government’s current spending, never mind its future obligations.
One way or another, then, entitlements will be cut. Don’t call it default. The correct term is entitlement reform.
You saw this day coming and saved for your own retirement. Don’t call it default when Washington inevitably confiscates some of your savings, say, by raising taxes on dividends and capital gains. Taxpayers accept the risk of future tax hikes that may make the decision to save seem foolish in retrospect.
Which brings us to President Obama. He knows cuts are necessary but seeks to position Democrats politically as the defender of all spending. Notice that, with ObamaCare, he is deliberately creating a constituency of the young to set against the old in future fights over the allocation of federal health care dollars....
