AOC, Who Makes $174,000 Per Year, Blasted For Complaining About $17k In Student Loans

AOC is crying in her beer after she decided she no longer wants to pay for the education responsible for her making $174,000 dollars a year. She wants Uncle Brandon to cancel all of her $17,000 debt. She is not alone in this pursuit. She is joined by Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Is this a commie thing? Would they like the government to pay off their houses and cars, too?

AOC said:

“I’m 32 years old now. I have over $17,000 in student loan debt, and I didn’t go to graduate school because I knew that getting another degree would drown me in debt that I would never be able to surpass. This is unacceptable.”

As noted by Foundation for Economic Education policy correspondent Brad Polumbo, AOC is paying no more than $2,400 a year on her loan. She can’t afford that? Why don’t we garnish her pay? If she really wanted to, she could pay her debt off in one year. And her degree will stay with her for the rest of her life. I fail to see what the problem is.

He also pointed out that if properly managed, her debt is, in all probability, very manageable:

Ocasio-Cortez’s $17,000 in student loan debt sounds like a lot, but it probably only involves a monthly student loan payment of $100-$200. It’s hard to know exactly what her payment is without being familiar with the specifics of her loans, but $100-$200/month is a reasonable estimate given that the average graduate owes $28,400 total, which equates to a $297 monthly payment.

From The Daily Wire

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said on the House floor that she is likewise struggling to repay her obligations: “I worked full time, Monday through Friday, and took weekend classes to get my law degree. And still, close to $200,000 in debt. And I still owe over $70,000 and most of it was interest.”

In response, Daily Wire commentator and bestselling children’s author Matt Walsh observed that student debt forgiveness is a glorified form of “welfare” for the affluent.

“She’s a perfect example of why we shouldn’t forgive student loans,” Walsh tweeted. “She makes $175,000 a year and wants the tax payer to assume her debts? No, pay your bills you deadbeat. Student loan forgiveness is upper class welfare.”

“Half of all student debt is held by people with graduate degrees,” he added. “The idea that this is some kind of persecuted class of people who deserve tax funded debt forgiveness is absurd.”

    Although I think AOC is a Martian, She’s not wrong on this. The whole student loan program is a money laundering scheme, and has been that way for 30 years. The debt is real as is the impact. If you’re not paying these loans then please refrain from being parental and negative. Too many people fail to realize our technology in this country is based on higher education. Every STEM grad is a USA asset. The USA is competing against tech countries that have tuition free higher education. The government should put a cap of 40k on every single student loan currently being paid back. This should be for STEM related degrees, 40k is the price of pickup truck and is reasonable to ask for this amount. After implementing this plan the student loan program should be terminated. A new loan program should be put in place for 8k per year. This will force the higher education institutions to lower their tuition and prevent them from having 40 Billion dollar endowments, which is ridiculous.

    I don’t think it’s fair for me to repay the loan on my house, or on my car, as it puts far too much of a strain on my ability to spend my money on what I want to, instead of what I already promised.

    She could have saved herself a lot of money by not going to college in the first place. It is very obvious she learned absolutely nothing.

    She wants to eliminate the Electoral College, she knows three people who attended there and they all say it is a terrible school.

    Fact is that the barstool-squatting AOC’s enriched father paid her loans. The districts that the chronic alkie overlords live in despairing poverty, extreme filth, and massive high crime. She gained her position via vote tampering and the deceptive schemes by Schumer, Gillibrand, Cuomo, and the NY Board of Elections and was never ‘elected’ legally by the people since she’s widely detested, phony in all her ways. Absolutely nothing about this vile woman is legitimate.
