Today, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he would be resigning from the papacy, effective at the end of this month. This is not unprecedented throughout history, but is certainly so in the modern era. In fact, it has not happened since 1294. Reactions seemed mostly to fall into two camps: shock or a complete lack of knowledge and or caring.

While the AARP was using their expansive membership and significant lobbying force to advocate for the Orwellian named "Affordable Care Act", who was looking out for the real losers in this behemoth new law?
Who are the real losers you ask? They are the young; the 21-29 year olds who overwhelmingly supported the government takeover of health care as well as enthusiastically reelected President Obama.
