During his visit to the panhandle this week, Congressman Smith emphasized the importance of younger generations being aware of what's going on with the federal government.

Smith says there's legislation and laws going into affect that could have a drastic effect on the younger generation in the future.
 
"When they can look to their financial future, you know, they're paying into Social Security right now, young people are. And of the formula doesn't change, they will see no benefits years down the road. Yet, here they're forced to pay in."
 
Smith says congress needs to look into things like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid for the younger generations' benefit.
