Elizabeth Warren responds to angry dad over student loans

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren was confronted by a man questioning her student loan forgiveness plan. The father said that Warren intended to ’pay for people who didn’t save any money’ and ’screw’ others who did. The Senator responded by saying ’We don’t build an America by saddling our kids with debt’.

I agree irresponsible behaviors should NOT be subsidized. Have the government stop backing student loans that colleges make and I guarantee you colleges will be more hesitant about making them. This will result in fewer students going to college which should in turn result in lower tuition to increase registration.

Elizabeth Warrens plan is part of the problem. solutions like hers are similar to the solutions that create homeless people in California. this will only make more people find a loophole out of their debt. Elizabeth Warren dosent know what she is doing.

That's the big dilemma with forgiving student loans, it's completely unfair to those who decided to work through college or even got private loans to pay for it.

I thought he should have asked her about the scholarship she received for being Native American. Guess it's not part of her plan to repay her own debt. Which is in line with throwing out existing debt. I'm all for making changes to the system as it now stands, even lowering interest rates. Loan forgiveness ought not be done. It's another get out of jail card that tells people that the world owes them things they didn't earn. FYI, I have student loan debt so don't even go there.

She has it backward. Quit backing student loans. Let it be written off by bankruptcy. Then let the chips fail where they may. Don't bail ppl out. Don't keep them chained.

No need to call it tuition reimbursement, Warren can just give everyone in the world "reparations" for anything that ever happened to them ever.

A reminder that Bernie Sanders was the original champion of this idea and would do the exact same thing as Warren. If anything, Warren is at least transparent about what "free" college means. I personally do not agree with her for the exact reason this Dad points out, but I do respect her transparency.

I saved $ since I was a little kid. worked trough college tacking 6 years. Received/ earned a degree of use and took responsibility for my actions. Now the government is talking about tacking the wealth I made with my hands to entitled ones by entitled ones. Just saying?

If all of these people are going to see their loans liquidated, then it is only right that the rest of us who worked to put ourselves through college receive refunds of our tuition and other associated costs. I only received the usual pell grants, no other scholarships. I took out no loans, I worked full time while taking a full schedule of classes, my parents helped where they could, but there was only so much they could do. It isn’t right to shift the costs of these individuals to the rest of us, which is exactly what happens if their loans are liquidated.

she blew the dad off because he's a privileged American. she not fighting for his rights or yours. as it is Warren and Bernie are just distractions for trump to focus on so Biden can take the lead. Warren only want to hear from the poor and impoverished to gain the sympathy vote.
