How government disinherits the young

  • Expanding entitlement benefits that support older Americans at the expense of younger Americans
  • The Affordable Care Act’s higher health insurance premiums for young Americans
  • Tenure laws that favor older, often ill-qualified teachers at the expense of quality education
  • Shuffling of students into four-year colleges regardless of their aptitude, resulting in students drowning in debt with very few job prospects
  • Minimum wage laws that make it difficult for young and low-skilled workers to acquire valuable work experience
  • licensing requirements costing hundreds of dollars
