Democrats rarely get elected not to serve the people, but instead, they are often in office to serve themselves. There’s no better example of this than the recent reports that show that the politicians who are consistently pushing to erase student loan debt are the same people who have mountains of it.
The Daily Caller reports that 13 Democrats who are pushing for student loan forgiveness in Congress have student loans ranging from $15,000 up to $300,000. I’m sure you can guess who they are even without telling you, but here they are anyway:
This includes New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who owes up to $50,000 worth and has repeatedly tweeted about the issue, and also Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who owes up to $100,000 and has called canceling student debt “a racial justice issue.”
New York Rep. Grace Meng, who along with other Democrats in March demanded Biden forgive student loans “to address racial and economic equity issues,” disclosed in 2021 that her spouse owes up to $250,000 in educational debt.
Members who have backed debt cancellation while reporting student loans for themselves includes Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, California Reps. Jimmy Gomez and Nanette Barragan, Pennsylvania Rep. Brendan Boyle, Connecticut Rep. Jahana Hayes, Florida Rep. Darren Soto and Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar.
Omar stated that she owes Nelnet loan services $50,000 in 2021. Georgia Rep. Niema Williams has an ex-spouse who owes Navient and College Foundation $250,000
As you can see, this move to abolish student debt isn’t necessarily an altruistic move by Democrats, but a way to relieve themselves of the debt they accrued while attending university.
This “debt forgiveness” isn’t what it sounds like. The debt collectors that are owed these monies aren’t just going to suddenly shrug the debt off. These debt collectors expect payment and the Democrats want you to make it happen. This means that they can accumulate all the debt in this world, and you as a normal American will be saddled with your debts in an economic system that is expanding at the rate of a blue hedgehog.
Ron DeSantis was a wise man.

Evidently, some members of congress didn’t get a higher education because they don’t know much about the economy and how markets function. In fact, whatever they learned there hasn’t exactly been helpful to anyone but themselves.
