Audio: Bruce Braley trashes young people

As if Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) didn’t already big enough problems (including the first lady getting his name wrong during a campaign stop on his behalf), he was captured on audio disparaging Millennials, trashing their work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit.

Speaking to a group of manufacturers, Braley said young entrepreneurs at Iowa start-ups are “sitting around,” thinking up ideas that sometimes go “nowhere.”

“It may be 3 o’clock in the afternoon and they’re drinking beer and brainstorming,” he said.

Given that mentality, it’s no wonder Braley has supported policies that consistently hurt young people. He voted for the Affordable Care Act, which has increased healthcare premiums for Iowans by 142% for men and 59% for women and added $1 trillion in new taxes.

He has also consistently voted for out-of-control government spending and to increase the debt ceiling. As of today, an 18-year-olds’s lifetime share of the national debt is over $800K.
