Romney Accuses Biden of “Bribing Voters” With Promises of Student Loan Forgiveness!

11

Mitt Romney recently blasted President Joe Biden for considering broad student-loan forgiveness calling it essentially a “bribe” for midterm voters!

The Utah Senator and former GOP presidential candidate tore into the White House for considering widespread student loan forgiveness. He argued it could amount to a slippery slope for other types of debt forgiveness. 

“Desperate polls call for desperate measures: Dems consider forgiving trillions in student loans,” the Utah Republican wrote on Twitter. “Other bribe suggestions: Forgive auto loans? Forgive credit card debt? Forgive mortgages? And put a wealth tax on the super-rich to pay for it all. What could possibly go wrong?”

Romney’s accusations of the President pandering for votes come as Biden’s approval ratings have sunk to all-time lows, particularly among younger voters. Democrats fear rising prices and voter discontent with the state of the economy will lead to a shellacking in the midterms.

After Biden extended the pause on student-loan payments for his fourth time in office through August 31, many Republican lawmakers slammed the extension and the potential it could lead to broad student-loan forgiveness. Some even went so far as to introduce legislation — five GOP lawmakers recently put out the Stop Reckless Student Loan Actions Act — which would end the payment pause and prohibit Biden from canceling student debt in connection to a national emergency.

“The Biden Administration continues to call for a return to normalcy from the pandemic while simultaneously extending emergency relief programs like the student loan repayment freeze,” Sen. Richard Burr, one of the sponsors of the bill, said in a statement. “They can’t have it both ways. Resuming student loan repayments is long overdue, especially in today’s strong job market.”

Still, it’s looking like Biden is growing more open to the idea of providing broad relief. He told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Monday that he is open to forgiving at least $10,000 in student debt — which he pledged to do during his campaign — and his administration has indicated any relief will likely be implemented prior to the payment restart date in September.

In response to Romney’s comments, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren — a leading lawmaker pushing for loan forgiveness — told the press, “Is that the same Pandora’s box that you think was opened up by having public K through 12?”

“We give our children an opportunity to get an education for free across this country because we know that investing in our future citizens and our future workforce is good for the entire country,” Warren added. “Student loan debt is not the same as credit card debt, mortgage debt, or any other debts. That is good for our whole nation.”

Other Democratic lawmakers stood with Warren to say that canceling student debt is long overdue. 

“Think about what we’re doing to young people in this country….” California Rep. Ro Khanna said at a recent student-debt rally. “We should commit from this administration on that no one should go into debt simply to get an education in this country.”

    Go and start teaching them, while they are young that if you borrow money , you don’t have to pay it back. I am retired and with this outrageous inflation, and gas prices, I still manage to pay my mortgage every month. I also have a car loan which is almost paid off. Can I receive a mortgage/auto forgiveness loan President Biden???. This is the ONLY time I agree with Mitt Romney (RINO)!!!

    Sure, we need more debt like we need a hole in our heads. Stop pandering to ridiculous propositions and start doing your job. None of this is helpful to anyone. Secure our borders, stop hand picking our military to wokeism, get us out of nato, and the Ukraine and get us out of the bone headed idea that the UN can walk into our country and defy our sovereignty on a whim of propaganda that there is a deadly pandemic that no one has ever isolated, nor has any proof the virus even exists. stop paying farmers to not grow crops, stop burning our food sources, to cause a famine and stop with the propaganda that no one is listening to nor believes, the problem is YOU, not Trump, not Republicans, not Russia, Not some virus fauchi cooked up to push deadly “vaccines” on unsuspecting people to depopulate them and not the 1000 other things you have used as an excuse for your own incompetence. Klaus Schwab, George Soros, Bill Gates or any other of their ilk were never elected to any congressional seats and have exactly zero power here as we the people do not worship the all mighty buck, We the people have decided. Cancel culture does not work here.

    Apparently my comments although 100% true, were not worthy of publication. Obviously fix this nation is not interested in fixing a damned thing.

    Where does idiot Warren think public schools are free? I don’t even have kids and pay school taxes every year so public schools are not free.
    These idiots in Congress or what ever don’t have a clue what the hell they are talking about.

    Mitt Romney is right with this. Brain dead puppet is giving away money only if you vote for the socialist dem idiots! Money, housing, health care for illegal immigrants before American homeless, vets, poverty in our country is getting worse, and Americans are suffering as this administration spends billions on other countries, and illegal immigration. We the People need to vote out these anti Americans, try to get this Republic back on track before all of our rights are destroyed. George Soros needs to be destroyed now!

    Romney is losing it just like Biden. After accusing Marjorie Taylor Greene of treason, he not stomps on Biden? Well, DUH! The people of Utah (whose legislature by the way is staunchly GOP) should bounce Mr. ” I put my dog in top of my car” Romney out of office. He also voted for the radical communist judge Ketanje Brown Jackson to become the next US Supreme Court Justice. He is absolutely loosing his mind. Time for him to take a permanent duck in the Great Salt Lake!

    K through 12 are not free!! Our taxes pay for those years, we all pay for those years by paying our taxes. When young people go inti debt to continue their education you would think that they would work hard at their grades. Why are we suppose to get students out of debt when they already make more money that middle America does? They need to live on a budget just like the rest of us and pay thir bills.

    Of course it’s a bribe. Now that the polls show that the younger voters are turning against Biden he has to do something. Bribe ’em by tellin’ ’em they don’t have to pay the bill for their education. It’s easier than telling them to go out and get a job. After all, the economy is doing so well. Just ask Harris and Pelosi.
