Report: The GOP Is Why We Cannot Have Nice Things, Part Infinity

Republicans Hard At Work

It is not a secret that the Yutes of Today, callow though they may be, are crippled with debt from student loans and have failed to launch into the American Nightmare, er, Dream. The potential of this demographic —the most educated generation is US history— is YUGE and is being held back.

(Much of the tax cuts of the ’70s and ’80s [Hello, Howard Jarvis!] were financed by becoming the usurious fees at state colleges and universities, and then many schools started becoming profit centers. Those ‘comedic’ bumper stickers on fantasy cars of that era —“I’m Spending My Grandchildren’s Inheritance”— were much more honest. I might have keyed one or two. Allegedly.)

Anyway, President Handsome Joe Biden is looking into cancelling some or all of the student debt which would be politically advantageous as well as an amazing thing to do for the country as these kids could start to contribute to the economy through pent-up demand if they could spend more of their income.

But the GOP will not let him:

FIRST ON FOX – Senate Minority Whip John Thune and a group of GOP senators are introducing a bill to ban President Biden from canceling student loan debt, amid news Biden is considering doing just that.

The bill would also limit how long the administration can pause student debt payments and add congressional oversight to the process. People with income above 400% the poverty line would be exempt from any pause.

Thune speaks:

“As Americans continue to return to the workforce more than two years since the pandemic began, it is time for borrowers to resume repayment of student debt obligation,” Thune, R-S.D., said in a statement. “Taxpayers and working families should not be responsible for continuing to bear the costs associated with this suspension of repayment.”

Thune added: “This common-sense legislation would protect taxpayers and prevent President Biden from suspending federal student loan repayments in perpetuity.”

“My REAL constituents fleeced the students fair and square,” Thune didn’t add. “Who will cry for the bankers?”

UPDATE 1: the Straw Man speaks!!1!

    Sure, introduce all the bills you want. They won’t get past Handsome Joe’s desk, and you don’t have the votes to override the veto. Sucks to be you.

    Thune and ilk will never pass their proposed bill in the Senate we have at the moment, but they’ll scream and shout about enabling the loafers while planning the next round of tax cuts on their wealthy contributors. I’m hoping Biden just does what he obviously wants to do and cancel student loans. Let the chips fall where they may…

    If we start forgiving student loans, where does it end? Bailing out giant wealthy banks??? Subsidizing the coal mining industry???

  4. Fuck Romney. We were in a position to pay for Young Zombie’s college at a private engineering school, and he is now a solid middle class owner, has bought a car AND a house, has two cats and a dog, and is spending money on house repairs and improvement, contributing to the damn economy like an American!

    Such a useless bill will go nowhere and a craven douchebag like thune knows it. It is more or less a harumpf to maintain the waning support of boomer-aged sociopathic cow fuckers in a desolate state where thune has never resided, but somehow represents. Oh, and fuck romney.
