    Top Clinton Adviser Worried Millennials Will Vote Republican if They See Their Taxes Go Down

    As you should be.

    Philippe Reines, a longtime adviser to Hillary Clinton who worked with her in the Senate, the State Department and in her presidential campaign, spoke before interns to give his insights on the current political climate.

    Then interview aired on CSPAN.

    Reines told the students he was worried millennials might become Republican if they notice they don’t have to pay as much taxes.

    Philippe Reines: I think millennials have to, they have to, they more than anyone have to say this is not normal and there is a lot of pressure to shut up(?) Donald Trump and his people want everyone to shut up. Get over the election. Hillary Clinton go away. That’s in their best interest. But that’s not how it works… I hope millennials don’t fall into a lull. God knows how many of them will see their taxes go down and base it just on that…

    Yes. It would be awful if young millennials notice how much they get to keep of their toil and sweat with Republicans in office.

    It makes it harder for the Democrat-Socialist lies to sink in.

    My son looked at his first paycheck when he finally got a steady job. He wasn't happy. That was before the election. That's when he decided he'd never vote for a party that wanted higher taxes.

    His friend calls himself a socialist. He had one job and was starting to waver a little on taxation and social programs then. Now he has another, better job. He still calls himself a socialist, but he's a lot more mushy about socialism than he used to be.

    My son has another friend who has had crummy jobs for years, since he was 15 or 16. They don't pay much, and he's been mad from the beginning that they take so much away from him.

    All 3 are millennial. (Not like Maxine Waters millennial. She was one before there were any. Or so she claims.) 2 of the 3 are hard against the government taking so much away and not being able to show anything useful from it. All aren't against using some of it to help people. But 2 of them are steadfast that the government wastes it (they do) by running programs full of waste and abuse (which they are) that ends up requiring more money than necessary be taken away from workers (which it is) to not even approach providing the help all of this money should provide (which it doesn't).

    I promise you, 2 of those are voting Republican this fall. I won't be a bit surprised if the socialist decides it doesn't make sense to keep supporting the party whose main goal is to keep everybody in poverty and dependent except the politicians and their donors.

    I run across more and more millennials who are waking up. Let them keep more of their money and many more will wake up, and they are not going to be easily lulled back to sleep again.

    Few skills are so well rewarded as the ability to convince parasites that they are victims.
