The Daily Caller featured a video showing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) with Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and showing support for his plan to forgive student loan debt and provide free college tuition.
“We have 45 million people who are part of a generation that is burdened by student debt, literally shackled by it, and we are going to make sure that we are freeing them from that shackle, so that they can have the kind of prosperity that should be guaranteed by the educations they have received,” Omar said.
“I myself am one of those 45 million,” she added.
So basically Omar and her colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others want to use their political positions to vote for the American taxpayers to pay off their student loans. What a completely corrupt use of their power!
Besides the fact that it’s a punch in the face to hardworking Americans who either avoided student loan debt altogether or paid it off after graduation. Will kids who get free college will be able to appreciate it as much as those who had to work for it (or whose parents did)? Not likely.
