You keep repeating this as if it is a fact. Stop it! Here are the facts: Every seat in the House of Representatives is up for reelection in 2016. 34 Senate seats (10 Democrat, 24 Republican) are up for reelection in 2016. The fact of the matter is that the face of Congress could change every bit as much as the POTUS.

On top of that, it appeared as if the Univision hosts had some kind of directive to not allow Bernie to speak for more than 30 seconds at a time without cutting him off and telling him he's out of time, while allowing Hillary to rant on endlessly.
I noticed that as well. More disturbingly was the end of the debate when one of the moderators asked a question about qualifications for Supreme Court appointees. Hillary gave a typical long winded answer and when Bernie went to respond it was suddenly time for a commercial break.
Yes there were good questions put forward by the Univision team but with regard to time management they were very lacking. Whether it was amateurish or something deeper is up to the viewer.

The youth of this nation (and old) will have a chance to push back and end the deadlock in congress. We can bring good change this country desperately needs. This year and the next is crucial to the well-being of our society for the coming years. it is vital that we act as one and spread the word to make the necessary changes, which is not very hard considering social media, all we have to do is vote and do our part.

We've got our work cut out for us, no doubt. It's going to take a commitment of time and effort. We need to do our due diligence. We need to research our candidates. We need to go to town hall meetings. We need to write letters/emails. We need to stand up and ask the hard questions. We need to stand up and proclaim that the way things have been are no longer acceptable to us, and we will use our votes to communicate that clearly. We NEED to get involved more than we have been.
I am saying this to myself as much as to anyone else.
Oh, and for the record, I am 55 years young.
I'd advise you to perhaps try and swallow some of that snooty fatalism. People like you are heavy on the backs of those of us trying to get things done.
Is it really something we have seen time and time again though?

Its like a whole new generation has arrived to plow the field of stone. I get that. What you don't realize is I go back a bit further than Reagan to Nixon, Kennedy…
The world is going Global. Its time to be realistic that America is no longer the self sustaining, geographically isolated country it once was.
