Yesterday we reported on a video of a father — who said he saved up to pay for his daughter’s college education — asked Elizabeth Warren if he would get his money back under her plan… Which she smugly responded “No”
Today Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) attempted to defend her plan to eliminate millions of dollars of student loan debt.
The father’s main point was ‘Why should the people who did the right thing and paid off their student loans, or saved so they didn’t need a loan suffer, while others less responsible get off free and clear?
Of course, Elizabeth Warren could not give a legitimate answer, so she spent the time just deflecting.
“Our kids have taken on a trillion and a half dollars in student loan debt. We have to back that up and say, ‘We’re doing better going forward.’ That we’re not going to say the next generation has to take on two trillion dollars of debt,”
As usual Warren doesn’t mention that these Students took out their student loans on their own accord.
I have yet to hear one of these students say…
I was perfectly happy going to a community college but my bank held a gun to my head and forced me to take out a loan and go to Yale.
Warren’s student loan forgiveness plan, which is estimated to cost American taxpayers $640 billion, would eliminate up to $50,000 in student loan debt for those who earn less than $100,000 a year.
Citing the “broad legal authority” granted to the Education Department, Warren said she would direct the agency to erase the debt on her first day as president.
