Great article. I have not been a Hillary supporter in the past but this article makes me feel a lot better about voting for her. I am a GenXer and although I don’t identify with millenials, I can remember vividly how much garbage Hillary Clinton had to endure in order to get the CHIP program instituted. My own staunch Republican parents (somehow supporting three kids on one teacher’s salary) took issue with it because it was coming from the wife of a Democrat, and also because it may have qualified as being “socialized medicine.” I remember thinking, “What the heck? Kids need medicine.” I think I was ten years old at the time and knew their reasons were extremely short-sighted. In fact, now that I think about it, I think that may be the first time I actually realized I didn’t agree with my parents’ view. Anyway, I’ll be voting for Hillary in this election.
