Only 11% of U.S. Senators Born in 1970 or Later

 

Our President is 71.  Hillary Clinton is 70 and Bernie Sanders is 76.  Only 11 of our 100 Senators were born in 1970 or after.  Only 20 Senators can be considered as being born after the Baby Boomer generation.  All of those are at the beginning of the Generation-X time period.

Age does equal experience and age is not a determinant of your value or ability to contribute.  But at some point in this period of legislative and general government inaction the younger generations need to start asking tough and uncomfortable questions.  Do our elected representatives really represent us?  Are the current two parties evolving with the times and issues?  Or are we stalling turnover at a detriment to our future and America?  Below are the ages as of today for all 100 senators, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Mike Pence.
