(ThePatriotSource.com)- Far-left New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed over the weekend that she plans to push hard for Joe Biden to cancel student loan debt, even though the former vice president has appeared hesitant to do it.
Emboldened by the fact that socialism has been mainstreamed in the Democratic Party, Ocasio-Cortez announced on start-up news platform “Punchbowl” – which is sponsored by Facebook – that she will push hard to make him do it.
“We have to push the Biden administration hard. This whole thing ‘We can’t cancel student loan debt’ is not gonna fly,” she said.
And when AOC says it, unfortunately, she’s not saying it without support. A large minority of Americans have openly embraced socialism, which has led to the election of several far-left members of congress just like AOC.
Last month, Biden indicated that he didn’t think he had the power to wipe out student loan debt without the support of Congress.
Speaking to the Washington Post, he said that it’s “arguable” that the president may have the power to wipe out $50,000 in individual student loan debt.
“Well, I think that’s pretty questionable. I’m unsure of that. I’d be unlikely to do that,” he said.
The comments come after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pushed for Biden to wipe student debt on December 7. Schumer told the press outside of his Manhattan office that he had concluded Biden would have the authority to wipe student debt.
“We have come to the conclusion that President Biden can undo this debt, can forgive $50,000 of debt the first day be becomes president,” he claimed. “You don’t need Congress; All you need is the flick of a pen.”
Isn’t it ironic that Democrats spent the last four years calling President Trump a dictator and now they’re already plotting ways to relieve legitimate debt with the flick of a pen from a man who was elected off the back of a compromised election?
Over 40 million Americans currently have student loan debt, and while it would likely be welcomed by those who can’t pay it back, simply wiping debt would be disappointing (to say the least) for millions of Americans who worked for years to pay off their debts.
Isn’t this really just about helping out those who chose to study useless degrees like Gender Studies, and who now can’t get a job?
