Hillary Clinton really does not understand the youth of America. She also just does not understand the appeal of Sanders and why the momentum is behind him. In winning Nevada tonight, she took a swing at getting young people to come to their senses and back her instead of Bernie:
I want to say this to all the young people out there. I know what you’re up against if you left college with a ton of loans, it’s not enough just to make college more affordable. You need help right now with the debt you already have.
That’s why I have a plan to cut your interest rates and cap payments so you never have to pay more than you can afford.
But I want you to think about this. It can’t be just about what we’re going to give to you. It has to be about we’re going to build together. Your generation is the most tolerant and connected our country has ever seen. In the days ahead, we will propose new ways for more Americans to get involved in national service and give back to our communities, because every one of us has a role to play in building the future we want.
Here’s the thing: the future the young people of America wants is not represented in Hillary Clinton.
They want a future where money does not dominate our politics.
They want a future where Wall Street is reigned in and politicians stand up and tell them that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
They want a future where education and healthcare are seen as human rights.
They want a future.
And Hillary’s campaign is dominated by money from the wealthy, she stands up to Wall Street only when they pay her to speak to them. She continues to say “no we can’t” while hugging close to the president who ran on “yes we can.”
Bernie is the true heir to the ideals behind yes we can. Bernie sees a future where money does not dominate politics, where Wall Street is reigned in, and where banks are broke up and He has fought consistently against all of this his entire career.
The only consistency with Hillary is her evolution.
