Elizabeth Warren Thinks Biden Can Save His Presidency With Executive Order Canceling Student Loan Debt

Elizabeth Warren Thinks Biden Can Save His Presidency With Executive Order Canceling Student Loan Debt

“These are people who did what we want them to do as Americans. They tried.”

Elizabeth Warren thinks she knows how Biden can fix his imploding presidency. All he has to do is sign an executive order canceling federal student loan debt.

American taxpayers just haven’t been squeezed enough yet by inflation and high gas prices.

The hosts on CBS This Morning pointed out Biden’s poll numbers and the lead now being enjoyed by Republicans but Warren insists all is not lost.

Virginia Kruta reports at the Daily Wire:

“All the polls are very, very bad, right?” Dokoupil continued. ” I mean, the — Gallup had a poll that showed a preference nationally for Republicans at a five-point margin over Democrats. You started with the insurrection and a nine-point advantage. In the fourth quarter, it was a five-point margin for Republicans. So something is not right here. Something that you think could change the game for President Biden is with the stroke of a pen he could cancel student loan debt federally,”

“Yes,” Warren agreed.

“Why do you think that would make such a difference?”…

“It would affect about 43 million Americans. And keep in mind, for the people who are dealing with student loan debt, about 40% of them do not have college diplomas. These are people who did what we want them to do as Americans. They tried. But they had babies, they were working three jobs, they moved and they didn’t make it, so now they’re dealing with student loan debt on what a high school grad makes,” she said.

Here’s the clip:

What better way to tick off working class Americans than to force them to bail out people who voluntarily took on student loans?

If you want to watch the whole segment, it kicks off with Warren accusing Republicans of trying to prevent black people from voting, because lying comes very easily to her:

Warren must be making the rounds on media because she also recently appeared on Stephen Colbert’s left-wing Democrat power hour to do some more complaining about the non-passage of the Democrat ‘voter reform’ bills.

Remember how Democrats constantly claimed that Trump was destroying our norms? Watch Colbert and Warren yuk it up over his idea to abolish the Senate:

If Elizabeth Warren is so concerned about student loan debt why doesn’t she go after Big Education? After all, college students are encouraged by their professors to continue their edu……. oh, wait.

    Didn’t they tell us repeatedly that attending college was going to solve everybody’s problems? Make the students just that much more employable and able to earn “a living wage,” right? If that was true, why the hurry to transfer responsibility for the loan to people who didn’t ask for it, never agree to it, and didn’t benefit from it?

    Not sure how long ago you attended college but professors are “encouraged” to graduate their students in 4 years now, not prolong their education (because useless rankings or whatever).

    We actually have the opposite problem…we are pushing them out the door, whether they legitimately learned it or were dragged across the finish line.

    She said about 40% don’t have degrees? I bet it’s higher than that! These loans were pushed on idiot kids by professional loan dealers and they knew full well the kids had no chance of success at college levels – even the dumbed down versions. And then the ones who DO have a degree – in womynz studies?? Yeah, the want ads are brimming with those kinds of jobs! The dems are to blame for yet ANOTHER program that has helped to bring misery to millions! I posted when The POS oblama took over student loans that the costs would explode (they did) and the dems would use the “Golden Ticket” of debt cancellation to buy more votes. They are masters at CREATING an issue and then using it to weaken Our Nation and buy votes!

When I was in school, I worked as much as I could, I took out as little as possible in the way of student loans, and I studied towards a real profession (not Queer Dance Theory). When I got out, I upped my monthly payments as high as I could tolerate and paid off the student loan.

What a chump I will turn out to be if people who did the opposite — and have massive student loan debts for huge parties they held in school — simply get their loans paid off by the fed government.

    As Queer Dance Theorist with 36 bedazzling, rainbow flag years in this discipline, I am highly offended by this comment. I’m sitting here with Caitlyn Jenner, drinking Jack Rudy tonics when we aren’t spitting them out in disgust over hateful words like “real profession” and “studied” or “chump”…..

    wait….

    OK Caitlyn said you called yourself a chump. I don ‘t know if I believe her.

    Anyway, we are flabbergasted and flummoxed by this hate. We are flabbermoxed. Flummergasted. I can’t even think straight.

    2. Same boat. Seriously sacrificed to pay off my wife’s student loans. I know a lot of people who are making minimum payments and claim they can’t afford more while they waste half of every paycheck.

      Typical Democrat Socialist “solution” to the result of their policies. Biden administration favorables in the dumper? Let’s throw more of the citizens’ money at it, that’ll fix it right up.

        henrybowman in reply to Idonttweet. | January 19, 2022 at 10:43 am

        The typical Democrat Socialist “solution” is also usually completely unrelated to the actual issue at hand… it’s just a line item on a bucket list that the proposer has had for years. Never let an entirely unassociated crisis go to waste. Headcase sprays an Arizona politician’s presser with a Glock? Pass an “assault weapons” ban. Muslim wacko buys a Jew-shooter from a drug dealer on the street? Pass universal background checks. Biden doing badly in the polls? Nationalize the copper mines… I mean, pass a student loan amnesty.

        The Dems want to buy people off and cheat. No morals. No ethics. No integrity.

      Every time I see “government-funded [insert thing here] I change “government” to “tax-payer”

      When I lived in Oregon, I’d see “Publicly Owned” on the plates attached to various cars, including expensive SUVs dropping kids off in front of private or parochial schools.

      I wanted sooo much to be in charge of such things and label the plates “Taxpayer Funded”.

        Many years ago, when I worked at the largest West Coast daily, we had a spate of serious computer-related injuries (about a quarter of our 1,000+ news staff). It was so bad one of the alphabet agencies, probably OSHA but I don’t recall, funded a study. I was on the committee to draft a letter to our colleagues about the study. Management wanted “government funded,” but we fought for “taxpayer-funded.” We won, after a standoff. Nowadays, that paper would call the study a “free study,”

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Username. | January 19, 2022 at 9:32 am

    I worked my way through school, no loans. My favorite professor worked his way through school. I paid for my children’s college education, and now have a meagre retirement as a result of doing so. But I recognized the implications of their having a large debt load and not being able to buy a home early in life.

    Adding insult to injury, we would all be paying for a bunch of useless, saving hurt feelings, degrees.

    Instead of paying for these degrees, we should have competency exams prior issuing degrees, and there should be competency exams of everyone with a degree issued for the past 30 years. Let’s weed out all the degreed dead wood.

      MattMusson in reply to JohnSmith100. | January 19, 2022 at 11:16 am

      I worked my way through college when it was $4,000 a year. Not sure who does that at schools that are $60k and $80K a year. But, just remember that the constituency with the largest student debt are wealthy Doctors and Lawyers – the Democrat base.

        Milwaukee in reply to MattMusson. | January 19, 2022 at 11:35 pm

        Once upon a time, college was less expensive. College tuition and fees have gone up faster than inflation over the last 40 years. In the 1990s colleges figured out, with government involvement, that students could get loans, so student costs skyrocketed. Schools were disconnected from student defaults. About that time student loan debt became nondischargeable in bankruptcy. So schools have become Club Meds. Individual dorm rooms with private or semiprivate bathrooms. Rec centers with all kinds of work out equipment, climbing walls, 50 meter lap pools, and latte and juice bars. Oh, and loads of administrators. There are universities with more administrators than professors

    I worked part time during the school year and full time plus in the summer’s in construction. Yes, it was just a state university but I never took out a student loan (this was in the ’70’s admittedly) and it was pay as you go. Took a year off in the middle to work and save but graduated debt free.

    The uni profs are teaching students socialist garbage and pushing them out with little marketable skills and six digit debts. Grossly overpaid academics that are not teaching, just collecting big ticket salaries.

    Figures that Pocahontas would be pushing another huge giveaway as she is too simple minded to think of anything other than buying votes.

    Pessimist in reply to Username. | January 20, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Very commendable. Used to be the ordinary thing was one took into account the financial obligation incurred when deciding college, or not college. I just googled Harvard’s endowment . . . 56.3 billion. And Harvard is on the hook for zero per cent of defaults and or forgiveness. No skin in the game, no restraint. Cataracts of cash every year that even Heisenberg couldn’t hope to reach. What a super-sweet deal. I went to the college of the fleet, but I reckon if I had paid off a college loan as I have done on many loans, or am now paying every other obligation of my life – and a spit-ton of less conscientious “students” are to have their obligations forgiven – well, I might be a red-neck about it and I wouldn’t be alone. Brandon won’t do it.

    mtwashburn in reply to Username. | January 20, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    I did the same–work and school. paid for all of it myself and then same with grad school–and–while earning high honors. true, i lived at home and contributed there as long as i remained a student, but college was on me. I refuse to pay for anyone else. it’s their choice to sign and take loans. nobody forced them. will they pay off my car and mortgage in return? same idea here.

I just don’t understand the idea behind an executive order.. Isn’t there a limit to what they can do?

    Epimetheus in reply to amwick. | January 19, 2022 at 7:47 am

    That’s my question too. Isn’t student debt an asset of the United States? Does the President actually have the authority to unilaterally give away hundreds of billions of dollars that belong to the United States? And if he does, what’s to stop the next President from giving away, for instance, a few national parks?

    Dathurtz in reply to amwick. | January 19, 2022 at 8:11 am

    I think they are supposed to just be guidance about how to perform executive duties.

    The left thinks they are dictatorial decrees.

      henrybowman in reply to Dathurtz. | January 19, 2022 at 10:57 am

      The underlying issue is that Congress is too damn lazy to do their constitutionally-mandated jobs, and has been for coming on a century now.

      Instead of passing a thought-out law and then giving the executive branch the authority to execute and enforce that law, as the constitution envisioned, they delegate a nebulous chunk of ambiguous authority to the executive branch, then authorize the new department to “make any regulations necessary to fulfill the job description we hand-waved at you.” That’s why, to choose one obvious example, the executive branch (BATF) can tell you for years that bump stocks are perfectly legal to buy and own, then one day turn around and tell you they are “against the law,” and you have to turn them in for zero compensation, without being checked on punished by anybody, anywhere. They’re not supposed to make law, and yet they do. At any time, Congress could step in and make an actual law about any issue, overriding this nonsense, but they are completely cucked.

      Do you recall that the United States can’t go to war unless Congress declares it? Do you know the last war they bothered to do that for? WWII, 80 years ago. Since then, we’ve had Korea, Vietnam, Serbia, Desert Storm I and II, Afghanistan, Grenada, Winslow Arizona, and don’t forget Winona. Congress hasn’t lifted a f*g finger. In fact, they just delegated war-making powers to the Executive Branch, the lazy bastards — absolutely unconstitutional, but leaves time for all the crucial golf and insider trading sessions.

        They’re too busy getting rich and running for reelection to do something so mundane as to actually pass laws.

        Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | January 20, 2022 at 2:09 am

        Do you recall that the United States can’t go to war unless Congress declares it? Do you know the last war they bothered to do that for? WWII, 80 years ago.

        That is not true.

        First of all, if we are attacked we are automatically at war, no declaration required. That was the legal significance of the President’s declaration on the evening of Sep-11-2001, that a state of war existed between the USA and not just al-Qaeda but the entire network of Islamist terrorist gangs that included al-Qaeda.

        Second, Congress has declared war several times since WW2. A declaration of war does not have to include the magic words “We Declare War”. There are no magic words. The modern fashion is to call it an “Authorization of the Use of Military Force”, but that is a declaration of war every bit as much as when they were called that.

        Arminius in reply to henrybowman. | January 20, 2022 at 7:38 am

        The first series of wars the United States fought were undeclared by your standards, then. The U.S. and France had a falling out after the French Revolution led to the monarchy being deposed. The French started attacking our merchant shipping in the Caribbean, primarily. This led to what is known to history as the Quasi-War with France. Congress simply passed “An Act to Authorize the Defense of the Merchant Vessels of the United States against French Depredations” on June 25, 1798. Then Congress amended that act on July 9, 1798. That was all the legal basis anyone thought the President needed to send the Navy against the French, and formal engagements began in the Fall of the year.

        The Quasi-War lasted until 1800, when oddly it was Napoleon who restored good relations with the U.S. Perhaps not so oddly; he had his hands full in Europe and with the British Royal Navy. So much so that Napoleon abandoned his plans to militarize “New France” in North America and instead sold the Louisiana territory to the U.S. by 1803.

        The First Barbary Coast War (1801 – 1805) and Second Barbary Coast War (1815) were again undeclared by your “exact words” standard. But again nobody thought the Constitution demanded a statement like “We declare war…” Congress simply passed legislation authorizing the President to loose the Navy on the Barbary Coast states that were attacking U.S. merchant ships, then force a treaty (obviously the Dey of Algiers didn’t keep the terms, thinking we had been so weakened by the War of 1812 that he declared war on the U.S. in 1815) on the combatant states and submit the treaties to the Senate for ratification.

        Nobody thought the President was exceeding his constitutional authority since Congress did authorize force both against France and the Barbary pirates in one form or another.

        And at least in the case of the Quasi-War with France and with the First Barbary Coast War members of Congress included men who had been at the Constitutional Convention. They had helped draft the Constitution and helped ratify. They clearly understood what the document they had helped draft required. If they didn’t have a problem with sending the Navy and Marines to war simply by authorizing the President to do so without using any particular string of words, then neither should anyone today.

    When the word “all” is stricken from your vocabulary, when a sufficient number of the Members of Congress likewise strike it from theirs, together with oodles of federal officers who also follow suit – despite each one of these people having taken an oath NOT to do that – then there is nothing that an EO can’t do.

    “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    4rdm2 in reply to amwick. | January 19, 2022 at 11:18 am

    That depends if a Democrat is president there is no limit to what an executive order can do and It can even override the other branches. If a Republican is president Then they aren’t even allowed to order around the executive branch with them.

    Idonttweet in reply to amwick. | January 19, 2022 at 5:25 pm

    Executive Orders are supposed to be used to carry out executive authority. I don’t know of anything in the Constitution (Article II) that would directly allow the President to just waive his magic pen and vanish a trillion dollars in student debt. Nothing just inherent in his position would allow it, which leaves some statutory provision delegating that power to him from Congress. Legal eagles, please correct me if I’m wrong, I’m not a lawyer.

    Has Liawatha ever cited a statute giving the Executive Branch the authority to ‘cancel’ student debt? Right now, the government is guarantor of student loans, so if the recipient of the loan defaults, the taxpayer is left holding the bag to pay off the lender.

      The_Mew_Cat in reply to Idonttweet. | January 20, 2022 at 4:53 pm

      The statutes governing student loans give the Dept of Education extremely wide discretion. Even if he can’t cancel the loans completely, he can delay repayment for 200 years, at which time no borrower will still be alive.

Elizabeth Warren thinks were going to tackle inflation by – checks notes – printing even more money.

This is where someone should point out that she taught ‘bankruptcy law’ at Harvard. Bankruptcy.

I am all in favor for this.

Providing it also includes the following: reimbursement for my loans from the 80s, to include a retro calculation on the interest I would have earned on the money I mistakenly paid back.

Steven Brizel | January 19, 2022 at 8:19 am

Such an executive order should be challenged immediately in court as unconstitutuonal

    henrybowman in reply to Steven Brizel. | January 19, 2022 at 11:29 am

    And in the three years it takes for a court to give any relief on this issue (assuming they decide in that direction), the horse will have been out of the barn for three years and “there’s nothing you can do about it.”
    A few years back, the courts struck an EPA requirement for expensive coal scrubbers to be installed on power plants because that authority was not delegated to them. The EPA administrator said she didn’t care, as all the regulated utilities had already paid for and installed the expensive equipment under EPA threat, by the time the court had ruled.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to Steven Brizel. | January 19, 2022 at 3:55 pm

    Yes, it should be challenged. Under the twin assumptions that the Constitution still applies AND that the courts are not as political as Congress. Neither applies. So now what?

    His lack of understanding has been carefully taught to him. He is the modern reformer from the G.K. Chesterton quote “In the matter of reforming things, as distinct from deforming them, there is one plain and simple principle; a principle which will probably be called a paradox. There exists in such a case a certain institution or law; let us say, for the sake of simplicity, a fence or gate erected across a road. The more modern type of reformer goes gaily up to it and says, “I don’t see the use of this; let us clear it away.” To which the more intelligent type of reformer will do well to answer: “If you don’t see the use of it, I certainly won’t let you clear it away. Go away and think. Then, when you can come back and tell me that you do see the use of it, I may allow you to destroy it.”

amatuerwrangler | January 19, 2022 at 8:42 am

They tried!!?? That’s what a steer does.

We need to focus on success. Only in politics does “trying” equate to actually getting something done. How many problems are addressed by government’s “forming a committee to study [insert issue here]”? And nothing comes of it.

Many of those who are in debt and without degree are no better off than those who got useless degrees and can get no employment to pay back the loan. They are all pawns in a scheme to funnel taxpayer earnings into the liberal education establishment.

Pay it off by confiscating school endowments.

No. If the Biden administration removes my remaining student loan debt, I will still think he’s a senile old man who should be in a retirement home, not the White House. I will still have complete contempt for the imbeciles trying to run the show without a real leader to provide a modicum of common sense or discipline. I will still tell pollers –

Wait. I don’t respond to polls. I figure they’re all lies anyway.

So, yes, wiping away student loans might very well prop up his numbers. But the country will still be in dire need of a real president.

    Wiping out this debt (or delaying it until manana) will buy the support of the young lefties, but if the debt is wiped out, they won’t actually need him anymore. A better plan for Joey Demento is delaying the debt for 1 or 2 years at a time, so they still need to vote for Democrats to delay it another year, and another.

Stupid is as stupid does, Senator.

“You started with the insurrection and a nine-point advantage.”

Interesting comment about Republicans. Even though the vast majority of members of congress condemned the “insurrection”, the commie progs are going to blame the “insurrection” on the Republican party in general. SMDH.

She must be unaware of the settlement just announced in the case against Sallie Mae/NAVIENT filed by mostly Republican State Attorneys General.

This settlement will cancel all the predatory loans that Sallie Mae/NAVIENT were involved in.

We need some jujitsu here. How about the way it was? Once upon a time, I’m old enough to remember, when student loans could be discharged by individual bankruptcy. Reinstate that, with conditions, and then levy penalties on departments, colleges, or schools which have too many defaults. So if the college of education has too many defaults the college of nursing isn’t penalized. Those conditions could include a 5 or 10 year period when the borrower demonstrate an effort to repay the loans, and no new loans allowed for tuition for 10 years going forward.

While student borrowers would benefit from student loan forgiveness, the real beneficiaries are the educational institutions which collected the tuition and fees.

Well, I think Biden can save his presidency with an executive order awarding a million dollars to each member of my immediate family.

It couldn’t be possible that neither one of is is right on this, could it?

During her presidential campaign, a man told Warren that he paid off his student-loan debt, and asked her if he would be reimbursed. She laughed at him.
These days, doing the right things makes you a sucker.

So payoffs to the donor class are his only salvation? Think about it. how many families never had college debt they just pay higher taxes and the rich can go for free.

Tell us more about these 43 million people with student debt. How many received a degree? What was the degree in; Engineering which leads to a good paying job and career or an interdisciplinary studies degree city a focus on the impact of lesbian Latina witches in post Columbian South America?

Where is the call for responsibility for the schools? Why are they peddling BS degrees with zero application to the economy? How many Criminal Justice majors were do we need? Sure someone who joins the Army as an MP and use their GI bill to get a double major in CJ and social work with the intent to become a parole officer might make sense. Someone who chooses CJ because it’s easier than a hard science will end up underemployed not using the degree as a barista if they are lucky.

Many of these folks got sold a bill of goods by the schools and the fed education loans enabled the scam that a college degree is necessary for a successful life and career. That’s the dynamic that must end. Trade schools and JR college heck yes, both are great values that still deliver. A degree in a field that ends in studies or only entered the lexicon post WWII, apart from IT, are generally worthless. We shouldn’t fund them.

        The companies requesting these visa are supposed to be able to demonstrate a need for them. Cheaper labor cost does not count as a need as far as I am aware. If a particular company wants to be granted 20 visas for a particular engineering discipline they should be able to support that contention in court.

        That American Citizens and lawful residents are not creating class action suits to stop the obvious fraud is not something I can do a damn thing about. Govt sure isn’t very interested or responsive so lawfare seems to be the last recourse available.

    henrybowman in reply to r2468. | January 19, 2022 at 1:16 pm

    Maybe they’re adopting the Vermont strategy: “We sent Bernie to Washington so he’d stop bothering us here.” This will get out of hand.

They never follow up with

‘and cancel tuition increases’

As a student loan debt holder, you can keep your little bribe pen still. If you cancel my debt, it will make me that much more motivated to vote against you.

I earned that debt, and I am earning it’s repayment. Now, stop raising the minimum wage and doing nutty bribery things like trying to tie it to inflation WHEN IT IS A KEY DRIVING FORCE FOR THE INFLATION.

I could solve the so-called ‘crisis’ of student loan debt.

If the student doesn’t pay the loan back by the end of the loan period, the college has to pay the balance.

Watch how fast it gets under control.

Fat_Freddys_Cat | January 19, 2022 at 1:32 pm

The weird thing to me about this whole discussion is that the notion of everybody going to college was so that they would have more economic opportunities and make more money. Apparently even some of the people making more money are still behind the eight ball because of the loans.

So maybe this plan isn’t working. Maybe we need to rethink the plan.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Fat_Freddys_Cat. | January 19, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    There are what our young kids would call “boomer” solutions but a litigious blame others, “take care of me” type society doesn’t want to hear it.

    We don’t need counseling at colleges, we don’t need woke centers at colleges…hell, we really don’t even need gyms or organized sports at colleges. Let the private colleges pay for that stuff it they want and the publics need to keep their dirty hands off of taxpayer money for that stuff. Develop private companies that supply all of these services (from athletics to mental health) while bound to economic forces of the customer. Given time, a “pay for what you need” equilibrium of provided services would thrive in that space and be a boon to the economy.

    College is simply for the transfer of knowledge and the ability to adapt and learn new intellectual strategies, take it or leave it, sink or swim, pay (at a much more reasonable rate) or don’t.

    Stop the ridiculous litigious society for everything under the sun, the nanny state “It takes a village” approach, and the “nurturing adults” insanity…the price goes down and the expectations on the students can go up (so the degree is more valuable).

    What liberals don’t want to admit is their abject failure in the “everyone should get a college degree” approach they’ve championed since the early 90s….they have completely failed us on the immutable law of supply and demand in education. Supply of worthless degrees is way up, quality is down, cost is up, so what happens to demand?

Why should I support any policy or bill when a president is allowed to change it by an executive order without a vote or other support from congress? And now the president is even encouraged by congressional members … seemingly upon a whim … to write executive orders to further his own standing or the standing of something else. This is bait and switch … and leadership that does it should be ousted.

I no longer see any reason to have faith in leadership … they just do what they want and the rest of us be damned.

So Princess Spreading Bull says, “Let’s go out and buy some votes.”

I mean if Slow Joe cancels all student debt, wouldn’t those now debt free students vote for him?

Of course some of that student debt was issued by private lenders, and I think that those private lenders just might sue the bejabbers out of Biden and the Feds—but meantime the votes will stay “bought”. Dang me–it’s good to be King.

    The young lefties will only stay bought if they still need him. If the debt is wiped out for good, they don’t need him anymore. But if he delays the debt for 2 years, so it comes due right before (or immediately after) every election cycle, he can keep their loyalty.

Cancel their debt.

Also cancel all college credits paid for by the student loan.

How many people would give up their college degree to cancel their student debt?

    That wouldn’t do what you think. The majority of loans are taken out for living expenses. Grants and scholarships and state programs pay for a good bit of those that can’t afford to pay tuition out of a 529 or outright. Even merit-based programs like Florida’s bright futures pay for pretty much everything except living expenses.

Yes, Lizzie, frantically and cynically do whatever you can to garner support for your 2024 presidential run, regardless of whether it makes economic sense.

Just no, because many of us DID pay back our student loans. The retards signed the contract, they can pay back their own debt.

    Vote buying with your tax dollars. Thanks for paying off the loan but dems are desperate and will do whatever they can to buy more votes with your money.
    If we had the clout then canceling student debt should also come with the retraction of their degrees with a criminal statue making it illegal to even refer to having been to a higher education school.
    Dems love those worthless degrees and pay lots of money to learn how to say “I feel” about everything. Imagine how they’d feel if they couldn’t even say they went to college. Would you like fries with that order maam?

It should be illegal to put the words elizabeth warren and Think together in the same sentence.

I worked hard, sacrificed, and saved so I could send my children to university without them having any debt. Just as my father did for me and my grandfather did for my father.

Who will reimburse me? I think I still have the quarterly invoices somewhere. Or will the leftists just laugh at my foolish notion that I am responsible for my children? Stupid question, I know.

Abolishing the Senate? So now the Democrats are taking inspiration from the Emperor from Star Wars?!

My God, what a moron.

My guess is he will delay the debt until right after the Midterm Election, so they young lefties know that they must turn out and vote for the hand that feeds them, so it gets delayed for 2 years at a time after that.
