As a newly-minted 50-year old, I've seen taxes go down since my first election in 1980.
If you were a first time voter in 2012, how much higher do you think taxes will be in 2044 when you reach 50?
No one mentioned that to you before the election, did they?
Progressive taxation doesn't just mean tax the rich more.
With the debt, the young are going to be taxed more as the years go by.
