COLBERT: “Mm-hmm.”
OBAMA: “When you look at the issues, young people agree we should raise minimum-wage, have equal pay for equal work, they agree we should make sure a family, when the child gets sick, you can stay home without losing your job, they believe in making sure that college is affordable.”
