Cue the snowflake stampede, coupled with endless protests!
Remember Biden’s absurd promise to forgive hundreds of billions in student debt, shortly before the 2022 midterm elections?
Well, that declaration was clearly way outside the bounds of Biden’s legal authority, as Congress, not the president, controls the purse.
An inconvenient fact for a power hungry leader.
Thus, Biden’s little plan didn’t gain much traction, as it was clearly designed to bribe indebted snowflakes for their votes in the midterms anyway.
And, surprise, surprise, the Senate recently passed a resolution to overturn Emperor Biden’s absurd $400B student loan forgiveness plan.
Senator Bill Cassidy, who led the resolution, pointed out a number of rather logical examples as justification for overriding Biden’s deranged plan.
“What about the man who skipped college but is paying off the loan on his work truck, or the woman who worked her way through school and is now struggling to pay off her mortgage under Biden’s economy? Instead of debt relief, this administration will force them to pick up the bill,” Cassidy asserted.
It was a totally elitist plan from the start, though Biden is well aware of the fact that deeply indebted, over-educated and under-worked woke liberals, are far more likely to vote for him than people who have actually worked (consistently) for a living.
Humorously, many of these students undoubtedly spent much of their time bashing the nation and heralding critical race theory in varied liberal courses, yet they now want the same people they denigrate to pick up the tab for their financial irresponsibility.
The level of entitlement is so enormous that even some brave Democrat senators dared to break party ranks and vote alongside the Republicans.
Democrat Senators Joe Manchin and Jon Tester of West Virginia and Montana, respectively, alongside Independent Senator Krysten Sinema, voted against the measure, demonstrating a degree of hope for an otherwise lost party.
Manchin also issued an official statement regarding his vote against the absurd plan, underscoring the extent to which such a plan simply is not viable amid the current financial crisis the nation is enduring.
“Today I voted to repeal the Biden Administration’s student loan cancellation proposal because we simply cannot afford to add another $400 billion to the national debt. There are already more than 50 existing student loan repayment and forgiveness programs aimed at attracting individuals to vital service jobs, such as teachers, health care workers, and public servants,” Manchin observed.
Yet Biden wants to throw another $400B the nation doesn’t have on top of the 50+ student loan repayment programs, primarily for purposes of politicking and purchasing votes.
“This Biden proposal undermines these programs and forces hard-working taxpayers who already paid off their loans or did not go to college to shoulder the cost. Instead, we should be focusing on bipartisan student debt reforms that reduce the cost of higher education and help all Americans,” the West Virginia senator added coolly.
Indeed, we should.
But that would mean university administrators, many of whom are ultra-liberal, would receive less pork to play with.
It would also mean that profiteering professors, who are almost exclusively ultra-liberal, would have to cease requiring several hundred dollars’ worth of textbooks to be purchased alongside a class that already costs several thousand dollars.
So, the government would rather steal from taxpayers than upset its Marxist army dominating the university system.
Fortunately, Democrat Senators Michael Bennet and Mark Warner refrained from voting, making it rather obvious that they are hardly gung ho for Biden’s plan, even if they are too nervous to vote against it publicly.
The House also approved the measure, though Biden, in the spirit of his version of “unity,” has already vowed to veto it.
What a surprise.
