Single-payer is dead — except not at all for young voters
The Washington Post - 12/22/2014
We’ve written before about how the youngest generations are much more entitlement-minded than their older counterparts. One particular survey showed 51 percent of adults aged 18-24 believe everyone in an athletic competition should get a trophy — not just the winners. We dubbed them the “Participation Trophy Generation.” (It hasn’t stuck just yet, but we’re holding out hope.)
Well, this new poll from Northeastern U bears out that point. It shows that, among this so-called “Generation Z,” 64 percent believe that government should provide health care to its citizens … free of charge. Just 20 percent disagree — a three-to-one margin.
