Can you vote? If you can’t, hang on, don’t leave the article just yet. With the Presidential Race just a day away, you’ve probably had time to consider the candidates. Maybe it’s time to sit and think about their impact on your life, even if you can’t choose one yourself.

She has represented us as a lawyer, as First Lady of Arkansas, as First Lady of the United States, as a senator, as Secretary of State, as a former Presidential Candidate, and a current Presidential Candidate.”

A politician running for any office will give you an overview of his or her policies, but there is always a hook for the campaign. Hillary Clinton’s biggest focus throughout her career has been for families. Those families include people from every class, race, age group, job, or level of education. This principle comes up in topics ranging from job policies to standardized testing.

Teenagers are just as affected by a President as adults. You’ll be looking for a job in a few years and perhaps you’ll go to college. Though most unemployment rates have lessened since the recession, the youth rate has remained fairly high, stated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This need to be addressed, and Clinton says she can fix it.

Like Bernie Sanders, Clinton has said college will be free and she hopes to work towards making people debt-free. But how do you do that? You can’t pull money out of thin air unless you’re a magician. Even if you are, I’m not sure you could make over 1.2 trillion just appear.

The answer? Limiting tax expenditures. That just means the rich can’t use loopholes to keep more money while filing taxes. With enough millionaires and billionaires paying what they owe, the 40 percent increase in tuition should be just a bad dream.

Clinton says, “Everyone will do their part. States will have to step up and invest in higher education, and colleges and universities will be held accountable for the success of their students and for controlling tuition costs.”

It’s about time someone tries to lower tuition, and hopefully wipe it out. Teenagers are the future of America. Education can’t be inaccessible or overpriced when it seems like every job requires some level of college. We all joke about it on the internet, but it’s very real. Some of the most intelligent will go without higher education because they just didn’t have the means to pay.

Not only is she helping us when we get to college, Hillary has made several statements on public education. ”I think every child in this country deserves a good teacher in a good school, regardless of the ZIP code you live in.”

Clinton often works on projects promoting better funding in the public school system. She did it years ago as First Lady of Arkansas and consistently does to this day. She’s fought for better pay among educators and has praised the profession. She’s backed programs to double money for young kids that come from lower income families. Clinton has fought for universal pre-k. She only wants the best for us as we learn.

Clinton has fought for our generation at every age, race, and class. She has represented us as a lawyer, as First Lady of Arkansas, as First Lady of the United States, as a senator, as Secretary of State, as a former Presidential Candidate, and a current Presidential Candidate.

Why has Clinton done good by us? Because we are the family class, and we are the future, and nobody knows it better than Hillary Clinton.
