Student loan forgiveness #1

“Student loan forgiveness #1,” Monterey Herald – August 28, 2022

Dictator Biden just signed a decree to spend taxpayers’ money without the approval of Congress. Congress is supposed to make changes affecting the nation’s purse, not the executive branch!

He canceled and lowered many college loans, which could cost us all over $300 billion!

Of course, Nancy Pelosi agreed to all of this. But on July 28, 2021, she stated: “People think that the President of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness. He does not. He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power.”  She said such student bailouts have “to be an act of Congress” and that if the President signed a decree for “debt forgiveness,” it would be illegal.

Since the Congress is no longer required to make changes affecting the nation’s purse or to create laws, then why have it around at all?

Biden is now eager to take pen in hand and seize the role of grand legislator. What could possibly go wrong? Let’s all “Sieg Heil” to our new Caesar. And let’s vote in a Congress representative who will stand against this tyranny: Peter Hernandez for Congress District 18!
