We've Got Issues : The Get-Real, No B.S., Guilt-Free Guide to What Really Matters by Meredith Bagby



They're Gen Xers, twenty and thirtysomethings, recent college graduates on their own for the first time, newlyweds, or brand-new parents. And whether they're slackers or strivers, many are clueless about politics, politicians, and the issues that truly matter to their generation. Maybe they just don't care.

Or maybe no one is speaking to their issues. Meredith Bagby knows what that's like and has put together a survival manual to show them the ropes to the 2000 Election.

Bagby, herself only twenty-six, reaches young readers by speaking their language. She's perfectly atuned to her generation and to the frustration, confusion, and apathy they feel toward Washington. Do politicians care about Generation X? Does Gen-X care about politics? In We've Got Issues Bagby tackles the political issues that should truly matter to young voters. She asks the important questions: How is the government spending your tax money? Whatever happened to welfare? What did you get from your public education? Is your neighborhood safe? Should you worry about retirement? And most importantly, who are you going to VOTE for?

While rock-solid on the facts and stats (budget issues, crime rates, social security reform, etc.), Bagby presents readers with a no-nonsense account of the issues that matter to young people today and that will affect their not-so-distant futures.
