If you’ve been following the ongoing controversy surrounding Joe Biden’s student loan cancelation plan, then you will not want to miss this! This week got off to an explosive start with Randi Weingarten absolutely losing it outside the Supreme Court building as the justices heard arguments about the debt forgiveness plan. In anger, Weingarten threw a massive tantrum that is making headlines across the nation.
After comparing President Joe Biden’s student loan handout to the COVID-19 small business loans of 2020, teachers union boss Randi Weingarten screamed outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday.
FOX News reports, at the rally in Washington organized by the Student Debt Crisis Center, Weingarten, the President of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), spoke as two challenges were heard to Biden’s student loan debt handout. As of 2020 or 2021, individuals or households making less than $125,000 a year or less than $250,000 a year would be able to cancel $10,000 in federal student loans under Biden’s plan.
Weingarten compared this situation to the stimulus package passed by Congress during the COVID-19 pandemic, which established the Paycheck Protection Program and provided forgivable loans to small businesses.
Weingarten made the same argument while appearing on MSNBC this week, adding that student debt relief is a “moral issue.”
According to the bipartisan Congressional Budget Office, the plan would cost taxpayers about $400 billion over the next three years and give Pell Grant recipients an additional $10,000 in debt cancellation.
According to Joe Biden, a law called the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act gives him the authority to wipe out student loan payments. This law was originally intended to provide relief to service members deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq by waiving student loan debt or providing other relief.
Biden’s liberal nonsense plan to simply wipe out millions and millions of dollars in student debt for the select few is simply unrealistic and not in good interest for our country. Meanwhile, to see Randi Weingarten – the same person who advocated for keeping schools closed during the pandemic – throw a tantrum on the steps of the Supreme Court was simply humiliating. Other countries are laughing at us right now due to the clown-world leadership coming from figures like Biden and Weingarten.
