Swalwell is barely registering in polls, but he is still running. He also has some serious college debt.

Townhall reported:

Eric Swalwell Can’t Manage His Own Finances But He Wants Access To America’s Checkbook

Despite making a six-digit figures over the six years as a congressman, Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has failed to pay down his student loans, cashed out his pension and accumulated credit card debt, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Between graduating from law school in 2006 and winning a seat in Congress in 2012, Swalwell worked as a prosecutor for Alameda County and a member of the Dublin city council. During his last full year as a prosecutor, Swalwell made $118,548. When he was sworn into Congress in 2013, he began making the typical Congressional member pay of $174,000 a year.

Financial disclosures show Swalwell’s student loan debt, between $50,000 and $100,000, remains at the same levels as when it was first ran for Congress in 2011.

On top of that, Swalwell cashed out his state pension from his time as a prosecutor and councilman, valued between $15,001 and $50,000.

Fast forward to 2016. He reported investing between $15,001 and $50,000 in a Vanguard retirement account but his credit card debt was pretty high. He had between $10,001 and $15,000 charged to his American Express card and between $10,001 and $15,000 in credit card debt with Chase Bank.

He just wants taxpayers to pay off his debt, while he has no intention of paying it off himself despite his capabilities.

So what? So do I. The question should be, is he making his payments on time?

There’s no way I’m going to vote for the guy but not because of some propaganda about his student loan ddebt.

    Dems have been pushing the equality conversation and all of their plans hinge on the fact that those who can pay, will.

    If he hasn’t made a dent he’s paying off the interest only waiting until it is paid for him.

      “If he hasn’t made a dent he’s paying off the interest only waiting until it is paid for him.”

      I would suspect this as well. In fact, I wonder how many people are doing the exact same, betting that Uncle Sugar will come along and wipe out their debt?

If your party’s platform includes forgiving large amounts of student debt regardless of ability to pay off that debt, why would an amoral politician pay it off? He is nothing if not consistent.

Wait, someone actually signed off on and issued this moron a degree? Did he threaten to nuke them?
