OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
Social Security and Medicare are programs that provide retired Americans with necessary funds to afford monthly expenses and get healthcare during their older years.
Political candidates often pin the millennial generation against our senior citizens, suggesting only one generation can get their needs met.
Young Americans now believe this is not true – that we can work together to make smart investments and take care of both generations.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
If we let political candidates set us against each other, we all lose, as we will be unable to solve the biggest problems facing our country– such as job opportunities.
OUR TIME OPINION
There are many different opinions on how we can create more jobs while managing our government spending. Politicians may want to divide us into warring groups, but the country will be better off if older and younger Americans work together to find compromise.
