Washington, D.C.: Elizabeth Warren tried to boost her progressive credentials with young voters on Monday by announcing a radical new program that would forgive $640 Billion in student loan debt.
“This is absolutely mind boggling,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “Not only is it a horrible way to tackle this massive problem, but it’s just stunningly two-faced as Democrats melt down over how we can afford middle class tax cuts whenever a Republican enacts them. Radical leftists will try to insist this is an investment into our future, but nothing could be further from the truth.
“How about we stop doling out federally backed money and allowing higher education to jack up prices because they know students can get a loan for it. Phyllis Schlafly pegged this issue of federal student loans as a chief problem in the field of rising college costs and declining college degree value. Elizabeth Warren is quick to dangle ‘freebies’ to attract voters, but it’s truly showing America the horrible math of socialists.”
