So much attention has been given to the idea of forgiving student loan debt lately. Bernie wants the government to write-off $590 trillion in loans. Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren all have similar plans that either involve total forgiveness by the government or allowing student loans to be dissolved through bankruptcy proceedings.
President Trump opposes both propositions and has a proposal of his own to counter :
“If you get out of paying back your student debt, you are stealing! And if you steal in this country, you go to prison!
I don’t care if you declare bankruptcy or have them forgiven by the lending government. You agreed to pay back that $50000 to get your degree in flower planting or rainbow washing or whatever. You signed a promise to repay. It’s in writing. You don’t get out of that.
I’ve looked at the student loan contracts. I read the whole thing in the part that was highlighted for me. It clearly states that ‘default equals prison’. It’s in the fine print. Democrats never read the fine print.
Once in prison, you work until you’ve repaid. Ten cents per hour. You’re gonna be there for awhile.
This is the law, boys and girls. This is a nation of laws. If you don’t like it, get out. Go fast though cuz if I catch you, I’m throwing your ass in jail. Hahaha!”
Once again, Republicans want only to enforce the laws already on the books. And Democrats want to keep helping criminals.
