'We just want to live': Millennials might survive GOP tax plan but are still finding grown-up life impossible

After the Senate passed the GOP tax reform bill early Saturday morning, the mood on the Left was apocalyptic: Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald declared America dead, and comic Patton Oswalt tweeted, “There’s no America now.”

Once the initial shock passed, in came the statistics. So far we’ve heard from economist Larry Summers that the GOP’s tax bill will kill 10,000 people a year, although ThinkProgress has boosted that number to over 15,000.

But what about the survivors? Won’t anyone think of the Millennials? Chris Plante, executive editor of gaming site Polygon, went viral over the weekend with his tweet about how the GOP is making it impossible for his generation to live life:

The GOP is making it impossible to earn a living wage and buy a home? Really. Plante revisited his tweet on Monday after it made the rounds over the weekend.

“The mere suggestion that life should be better for others?” That’s not what the initial tweet said; it was more along the lines of, “Life should be easier for us.” But let’s check in on some of the “fury” anyway.
