    so a "reform" message about those entitlements may well fly with his youth activist base.

    •  The younger voters selling out boomers? (3+ / 0-)

      Because they think they'll earn tons of money in their 401Ks for when they retire, right?

      It could happen, but the WH and GOP need to look to AARP to see how difficult it is to rip off the over 60 crowd.

      It certainly won't be popular with all the middle age and older women who were so crucial to Obama's victory.

      Of course Obama doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected,  so that could cause problems.  

      Please stand by. I'm looking for a new sig line.

        And I don't think that younger Obama voters are willing to "sell out" boomers.  I think that they are well aware of just who is going to be personally shouldering the burden of caring for ,and paying for their elders if they allow SSand Medicare/Medicaid to be grand bargained away.
