Watching the keynote last night, I was struck by how perfect Governor Christie and Mitt Romney are together – and how dangerous their policies are for young Americans. One moment stood out:
For make no mistake, the problems are too big to let the American people lose – the slowest economic recovery in decades, a spiraling out of control deficit, an education system that’s failing to compete in the world.
As a 23-year-old law student, I am thrilled any time a candidate talks about youth, or recognizes the importance of young people in this country – regardless of party or ideology. But such rhetoric can be dangerous when those words mask policies that eviscerate educational access and limit opportunities available to my generation.
That’s what we saw last night.
