MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann is describing the loss of “economic liberty” that young Americans face today as a “flashpoint of history” in which the younger generation will ask what their elders did to stop it.

In a speech Saturday to New Hampshire Republicans, Bachmann recounted learning about a horrific time in history as a child — the Nazi Holocaust — and wondering if her mother did anything to stop it. Though she said she wasn’t drawing an analogy, Bachmann said the next generation will ask similar questions about what their elders did to prevent them from facing a crushing tax burden.

Bachmann said that people just entering the workforce could eventually see 75 percent of their income sucked up by income taxes, Social Security and Medicare.
