President Joe Biden has dismissed nearly $32 million in student debt since taking office in 2021, clearing hundreds of thousands of American citizens of their collegiate obligations. The 46th President of the United States recently added yet another chapter to his student load forgiveness initiative by announcing his intention to clear $10,000 in student loan debt for individuals that earn less than $125,000 per year. But was is viewed as a financial relief for some is being heavily rebuked by his contemporaries in the Republican party, many of whom have labeled the concept unfair because people who make more than $125,000 per year also have financial deficits that they must pay off. Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Greene recently aired her grievances about Joe Biden's student loans forgiveness rollout during an interview on American Agenda.
For our government just to say ok your debt is completely forgiven, obviously they have an agenda for that, they need votes in November, so the timing is pure coincidence there as well, but it's completely unfair," Greene said. "Taxpayers all over the country, taxpayers that never took out a student loan, taxpayers that pay their bills and maybe even never went to college or are just hardworking people, they shouldn't have to pay off the great big student loan debt for some college student that piled up a massive debt going to some Ivy league school. That's not fair."
While several Republican politicians, such as Greene, Rep. Kevin Hern, and Rep. Mike Kelly, oppose Biden's viewpoint on student loan forgiveness, statistics show that nearly 60% of voters support the President's method of dismissing debt. In response to the backlash from Republicans, the White House recently tweeted information about prominent Republican politicians, such as Vern Buchanan, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Markwayne Mullin, who have also benefited from loan forgiveness in the past.
