Ilhan Omar attempts, we said “Attempts” to make a rational thought as she suggested to cancel student debt simply apply the G.I. Bill to everyone.
Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar facing defeat in the 2020 election is trying to bribe people for their votes with Bernie Sanders like freebies.
Also, way to completely miss the “ethos” of the GI Bill. I’m pretty sure that sacrificing your life in the line of duty, for a bunch of ungrateful liberals, to ensure our land is protected does NOT align with giving away free stuff simply because there are living, breathing humans.
If you want more money for schooling but you don’t want to serve in the military, you can do what the rest of us are doing: do well academically so you can earn additional funding, apply for scholarships and grants, and the craziest concept of all – saving your money.
Additionally, you’ll actually value the education you are earning when your success depends on your efforts beforehand and during the process of earning it!
Writing off debts only frees individuals of maintaining accountability, which will inevitably create a ripple of negative effects down the line.

“Imagine what it would do for our country and those who live here if we were to take the ethos behind the original G.I. Bill and apply it to everybody—canceling all student debt and making public colleges, universities, and vocational schools tuition-free.” ?? https://t.co/P6LNRv6h9w

I’m a recipient of the GI Bill. The GI Bill was earned by agreeing to serve my country for six years and to put my life at risk as an infantryman in Afghanistan. It wasn’t something just given to me with nothing expected in return. Don’t cheapen our sacrifice w/ this comparison. pic.twitter.com/4CNspm8gXt

My dad was a WWII vet who went to Brown University on the GI Bill. He still worked as a truck driver on the side to pay for his family's food and housing while attending school full time.
He didn't get "free" college. He paid his way with his service to the nation. https://t.co/lRQ6oRsck5
