Republican Youth Ready for Campaign

With the help of the College Republican National Committee, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is hoping to attract young voters in this year's election.

The Senate Democratic bill would tax small-business owners who make more than $250,000 a year and avoid paying payroll taxes; House Democrats sought to tax oil companies instead. But tax hikes are out of the question for the GOP.

Mitt Romney has offered young voters little beyond lip service and dishonest attacks on the presidents record, Obama campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith said. His position on student loans should be viewed as an empty promise given his support for the [House-passed GOP] budget, which would make it significantly harder for young people to afford college.
