MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough actually tried to use the bible to defend Biden’s spending habits. Biden bailouts are on track to raise inflation during a very shaky economy.
Some experts worry that it could send the economy into a recession. Meanwhile, Scarborough paraphrased a moment in the Bible during a segment of “Morning Joe,” speaking about when Jesus declared it was time for people to stop sinning and turn over a new leaf.
“We need to say that to the predatory lenders. Say that to the universities that are actually putting out degrees that are worthless in subjects that are worthless, that are raking in millions and millions of dollars,” Scarborough subsequently added.
Scarborough then recounted his own experience paying college tuition, noting how the cost of tuition has ballooned over the past few decades and pointing to several examples of universities, such as Louisiana State University and Baylor University, whose tuition has increased more than 300%.
“These numbers are indefensible. I just, my only point is … if you’re going to do debt forgiveness, do it in a way that tells the universities, ‘We’re going to forgive this debt, but here’s the deal: if you want universities to be able to take part in the loan program, state colleges: you’re going to have a fixed fee. Maybe it’s a $5,000 tuition. Private universities, $10,000. You don’t like that? That’s fine. You don’t have to do it. You don’t have to be a part of the federal loan program. But we’re no longer going to let you get rich off the backs of poor students, middle-class students, and taxpayers.’”
I could be wrong, but I don’t think Jesus referred to financial obligation as sin. These are loans that the students agreed to pay back and now they’re being used as a political pawn for Democrats to win voters. I’m not sure the bible would approve. What do you think?
