Young Americans love tax cuts - even for wildly successful people. A new McClatchy-Marist poll revealed 69 percent of young people (ages 18-29) favor tax cuts for all Americans, while only 29 percent oppose.
The wealth redistribution and "fairness" rhetoric coming from both academia and the Obama administration seems to be failing. Young Americans like financial and personal freedom.
And, maybe they like jobs too.
The best youth jobs recovery in the last 50 years came when President Ronald Reagan cut taxes 25 percent for all Americans. When the Reagan tax cuts were implemented in 1982, youth unemployment went from a peak of 18.8 percent to 10.7 percent the last term of his presidency--a 43 percent drop.
