Tribune editorial: The baby boomers have some clout now
The baby-boomer generation is fast becoming the new majority in America.
For the first time in history, Americans 45 and older as a group now make up the majority of the voting-age population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This, in turn, will give this 45-plus group more political power in the United States.
The numbers tell the story. America's 78 million baby boomers -- that are now between 45 and 65 -- are now starting to look forward to retirement.
