Default Angry Father Confronts Stunned Elizabeth Warren over Student Loan Plan - 'Am I Going

It's about time someone confronted these socialists with common sense. Of course Warren was stunned and had no credible response.

Angry Father Confronts Stunned Elizabeth Warren over Student Loan Plan - 'Am I Going To Get My Money Back?'

Elizabeth Warren’s campaign should be cringing.

With only 11 days to go before the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses, a video is making a splash on social media showing a man furious over the Massachusetts senator’s much-hyped plan to eliminate the estimated $1.6 trillion in student loan debt in the country.

On her campaign website, Warren makes no bones about her plan to “cancel student loan debt on Day One of my presidency.”

But after the confrontation with the voter shown in the video, she should be having second thoughts.
A Father confronts @SenWarren

Father : My daughter is in school, I saved all my money just to pay student loans Can I have my money back?

Warren: of course not

Father: so you want to help those who don’t save any money and the ones that do the right thing get screwed? pic.twitter.com/EY8M57tj9F
The circumstances surrounding the video weren’t clear — it was posted on Tuesday. But the circumstances surrounding the man’s complaint were obvious enough.

“My daughter’s getting out of school, I saved all my money, so she doesn’t have any student debt,” the man told Warren. “Am I going to get my money back?”

“Of course not,” the Massachusetts senator responded.

“So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save some money and those of us who did the right thing get screwed?” the father asked.

For Warren, there’s no way around the point. By vowing to use the powers of the presidency to end student loan debts for those who owe, it’s unavoidable that she’s not only being unfair to those who paid their debts like responsible, honest adults, but she’s also devaluing the sacrifice of those who’ve moved heaven and earth to avoid going into debt in the first place – either for their own sake or for the sake of their children.

It’s a classic case of punishing behavior that should be rewarded — if nothing else by leaving Americans free to enjoy the fruits of their own labors.

For the Warren campaign, the video presents an image of a candidate enthralled by her own dreams but being confronted by reality as it’s lived for millions of Americans.

Warren did not come out looking well, and the social media response showed it. By early Thursday afternoon, the tweet had garnered more than 14,000 retweets and 33,000 likes.
It’s time for those of us that do the right things, that save for our future, that invest in our economy and community to say “NO MORE” to those that refuse to work or save….and especially to those politicians that want to STEAL our hard work and give it away for their benefit

— Harald Martin (@Huddy1955) January 22, 2020

She got owned. Well done, Dad. I feel you. My wife and I did the same thing. One child went out of state and graduated with no debt. The second is at a private institution and will graduate this year – no debt. This because we saved our money.

There’s no denying there’s a student loan crisis in the country – thanks largely to the ease of getting student loans in the first place and the ease of avoiding repayment. (See an excellent Investor’s Business Daily editorial from 2015 here.)

The arrogant avarice of the higher education racket, with the hypocritical participation of Warren herself, a former Harvard Law professor, only made it worse.

With customers able to pay on borrowed money, colleges and universities have been able to increase their tuition and other costs in a market totally divorced from the disciplines of supply and demand. (And in gratitude for that government generosity, of course, academics essentially spit on the country that makes their cushy existence possible, but that’s a different topic.)

And Warren’s solution? Divorcing the market even further from reality by forgiving the loans of those who incurred debt.

The exchange had heads nodding all over the country.

And Warren’s campaign team should be cringing.

I fell many good-and-legal immigrants are equally angered when the Democrat contingency keeps telling them they're stupid for using the front door...

also Looks like she's the new media crowned candidate
geez how do they sleep at night
Des Moines Register Editorial Board Endorses Elizabeth Warren Days Before Iowa Caucuses
her endorsement was announced giddily by "AM Joy" Reed complete with minion guests excited to talk about the FOURTH in polling Democrat candidate.

Every time one of them has to interview Bernie you can see the vitriol.

Father's correct. Student loans are a classic example of why government needs to stay out of private business. And loans are private business.

No bank would loan a kid with no credit, no income, and few real prospects a hundred thousand or more dollars to study women's studies. So the government does. What could go wrong?

Interestingly, I've seen dozens of loan forgiveness proposals. Not a single one suggesting we do something to fix or eliminating the program. So we forgive the loans and face the same problem every 5 or so years.

Warren completely dismissed the valid concern of fairness in her student loan vote buying scheme. Here is an excerpt from her later response.

Quote:
Asked how she responds to him and others with the same opinion, Warren said, "Look, we build a future going forward by making it better. By that same logic what would we have done? Not started Social Security because we didn't start it last week for you or last month for you."
Student loan debt is a product of past decisions, it's not a future consideration. It's the Federal government robbing A to pay B. Of course B likes it. But in Warren's world it doesn't matter that A scrimped and sacrificed so their children wouldn't have to go deeply into debt to get a degree, they ought to pay for B's college education too with no objection either.

Warren complains the objection to penalizing people who did the right thing by paying for their kids college education if applied to Social Security would have stopped it from being implemented. SS is a prospective benefit, everyone pays in for a future benefit regardless of any other retirement income you might have. SS like Obamacare had an initial period where taxes were collected but no benefits paid out to launch the program. Warren's student loan debt forgiveness by executive order just repeats the student loan debacle, wade into debt for something rather than save for it.

There is a difference between SS and higher education. One, you contribute to a fund to receive benefits later.

The other, you are paying for someone to get an additional education, of their choice, at the expense of the taxpayers, so they can get a better job, make more money and achieve a higher social status.

And you see nothing wrong with that?
