Everyone in the Midwest just loves student debt and shitty health care monopolies. Last time I was in Des Moines people would not stop praising the price of pharmaceuticals.
One of the reasons @Ocasio2018 did well is because Obamacare obviously didn't work for the majority. In 2009, 7% of large employers offered high-deductible health care insurance. Today it's 39%. Insured people are losing their health care and the Democrats didn't notice!
There's no real mystery with why people are turning to different candidates. It isn't some grand youthquake, it's that the Democrats haven't been relevant to anything for years. Obama promised lots in 2009, but did a terrible job. This wasn't hard to see. washingtonpost.com/posteverything…
I mean there's also a youthquake, but @Ocasio2018 isn't the first millennial in Congress. Joe Kennedy and Eric Swalwell among others are young Congressmen. They just act like 65 year olds who put on a young person disguise every morning.
The Democratic youth outreach strategy in 2016 was Tim Kaine playing a harmonica while Chelsea Clinton attacked Bernie for proposing single payer health care. It's a total mystery why @Ocasio2018 did well.
