Jeb Bush assails Democrats' war on the young


SANBORNVILLE, N.H. — Jeb Bush, in a Thursday interview with the Washington Examiner, assailed Democrats for a set of domestic policies he agreed amounted to a war on the young.

The former Florida governor's policy-focused presidential campaign has been emphasizing the need to reform the nation's entitlement system for future generations.

Following a campaign stop at the Miss Wakefield Diner, the Examiner spoke with Bush about policy, specifically asking about whether the way that President Obama's healthcare law shifts costs from older individuals to younger ones and the fact that Democrats are reluctant to reform the nation's troubled entitlement programs meant that there was a kind of war on the young.
