House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doesn’t much like being in the minority. That’s one reason for her most recent proposal: lowering the voting age to 16. Because nothing would lower the average civics IQ like herding high school kids to the voting booth. But leave them on their parents insurance until age 26.
“I’m for — and I’m interested in hearing your thoughts, and I know you’ll let me know — for lowering the voting age to high school age, whether it’s 16 or 17 or — because when kids are in school they’re so interested, they’re so engaged, and we would like them to be ready at least to register before they leave.”
