During the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden made all sorts of promises about student loans that he knew he wasn’t going to keep.
Biden stated that electing him would guarantee student loan relief. However, as Americans have recently learned, starting February 1, 2022, people who owe the government back student loans will need to start paying them again.
Biden’s base is furious. They state that the 46th president needs to do what he promised during the election season. However, no false promises change the situation concerning student loans in America.
When people take out student loans, they do so with the knowledge of paying them back. There’s no secret about this. Yet, despite this, Democrats are getting increasingly more unhinged on the matter of student loans in America, as TheBlaze reports.
Leftist congresswoman Ayanna Pressley may have one of the most ridiculous takes anyone heard regarding student loans. In a tweet posted on Friday, the House Democrat declared the existence of student loans is, in fact, “policy violence.”
Pressley followed this by stating that Democrats shall continue their “grassroots” plan to “relieve” families of the student loans they agreed to borrow and must now pay back. Amid all this, Pressley did not offer an iota of supporting evidence to back up her claim that student loan debt is equivalent to violence.
It should not surprise anyone. Democrats will say whatever they think will get them their way. Pressley isn’t the first left-winger to do this, and she certainly will not be the last.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, another left-wing congresswoman, has also made false claims about student loans in America. Weeks ago, the House Democrat proclaimed that Biden could eliminate student loan debt via executive order.
It is demonstrably false, as many people have since pointed out. Only Congress can come close to doing what Democrats are advocating for regarding student loans.
On the issue of student loans, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is committed to ensuring that people who owe the federal government money can have access to a repayment plan.
In a nutshell, this is the politically correct way of saying that anyone who voted for Biden in the hopes of getting their student loans erased is out of luck. The 46th President played his base like a fiddle to get himself elected.
Now, in about six weeks, anyone who has not fully repaid their student loans will need to resume payments.
