Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana wins for the best comeback of the week in the continual debate about President Biden’s student loan payment plan. The Louisiana senator noted that “we already had a plan to repay student debt. It’s called a job. And it was workin’ just fine.”
Kennedy made his winning statement while appearing on “Hannity” last week. He also said that “President Biden is inflation’s best friend,” and that “inflation loves President Biden like the devil loves sin.”
According to the president’s plan, the government will provide $10,000 of federal student loan cancellation for individuals earning less than $125,000 annually — married couples and heads of households would need to earn less than $250,000 per year to qualify. And those who received Pell Grants and earned less than the income threshold would be able to receive $20,000 of student loan cancellation.
22 GOP governors came together to write a letter urging the president to abolish the student loan cancellation plan.
“At a time when inflation is sky high due to your unprecedented tax-and-spend agenda, your plan will encourage more student borrowing, incentivize higher tuition rates, and drive-up inflation even further, negatively impacting every American,” their letter said. “Rather than addressing the rising cost of tuition for higher education or working to lower interest rates for student loans, your plan kicks the can down the road and makes today’s problems worse for tomorrow’s students.”
People in this nation keep getting hit harder and harder by soaring prices according to the most recent consumer price index report.
“The all items index increased 8.3 percent for the 12 months ending August, a smaller figure than the 8.5-percent increase for the period ending July.”
Kennedy just kept these zingers coming, “Your aunt’s Facebook page has more credibility with the American people than President Biden does when it comes to the economy,” Kennedy said. He ended with this one, ”voters are gonna go medieval on him.”
We already had a plan to repay student debt. It’s called a job, and it was working just fine before Pres. Biden decided to transfer debt from coastal elites who chose to take out loans to hardworking Americans who didn’t. pic.twitter.com/etwmBzdmPI
