Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has implemented another ploy to try to win that elusive dream of Democratic nomination — and then the presidency.
As part of this new tactic, I hope she has a program to pay for all students’ college debts, as her plan would be unfair to those who have already settled their debts if only those with outstanding debts would benefit from her proposal.
In my view, Warren is delusional, and I’m not alone in thinking this.
Student debt is not a public problem. It is a problem of the student who wants to go to a school he or she can’t afford.
It’s a problem of the student who gets the loans and then parties the money away; it’s a problem of students who think they can and should get things in life for free.
I worked at a university and saw what some, not all, students did with their loan money.
Life is a beach — eventually you have to pay up.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election, wants to cancel billions of dollars in student loan debt and make college cheaper for students going forward.
Warren, in a post on the website Medium, proposed canceling $50,000 in student loan debt for anyone with annual household income under $100,000, which her campaign said would amount to 42 million Americans.
It would also cancel some debt for those with household incomes between $100,000 and $250,000.
Warren, who has long advocated in Congress for providing debt relief to students, called student loan debt a “crisis.” She said canceling debt for millions of people would help close the nation’s racial and wealth gap, and also proposed making all two-year and four-year public colleges free.
“The first step in addressing this crisis is to deal head-on with the outstanding debt that is weighing down millions of families and should never have been required in the first place,” Warren wrote. (source: Reuters)
I think she wants to wipe out the economy for 350 million Americans. Go to college, get a degree in something worthless, become indoctrinated in socialist dogma, become a victim — and then have someone else pay for it.
Sounds like something Warren would love.
Buying votes with other people’s money, Warren has an agenda to turn America into the United Socialist States of America.
She makes a lot of money every year, according to her tax returns; so with that, I would say she needs to be the first one to pony up, send a check to the Treasury, and set the example for others to follow.
That’s what leaders do.
Be a responsible and upright American and pay your debts. Pay your way through life — and don’t leach or sponge off those who are more successful than you are.
If you have no real ambitions or maybe you set your sights lower — then you don’t deserve the private jet and yacht.
