Lindsey Granger, a conservative guest host on “The View,” stumped Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) with one simple question about her proposed plan for mass student loan forgiveness.
The surefire way to stump a Democrat: ask them a simple question that they need to answer honestly. Democrat politicians are used to appearing on left-wing shows and news channels, and being asked softball questions by the hosts of these shows. Unfortunately for Warren, “The View” actually has one conservative on their show.
On a recent episode of the talk show, Granger pushed Warren about her proposed plan to forgive student loans for millions of Americans who willingly signed up to borrow the money, spent it, and are now claiming that they should not have to pay it back.
In response to this plan, Granger asked Warren a simple question: “What do you say to someone like me who worked two jobs for a decade to pay all their student loans — just finished. Where do I sign up for reimbursement?”
Of course, Warren had no answer for that question. Instead, she dodged the question by launching into the typical leftist talking points about all the poor “folks” who took out loans only to have “life happen.”
“So let’s start out with who has student loans today. About 40% of folks with student loans don’t have a college diploma,” the senator began. “They’re folks who tried and life happened … and now they earn what a high school grad earns, and they’re trying to pay off college-level debt, and it is crushing their bones.”
“Keep in mind that of those that have student loan debt more than half have negative wealth— they don’t have any wealth. You know that right now there are tens of thousands of people who are living on Social Security, who are having their Social Security checks garnished to pay student loans,” Warren continued. “And so this for me is a question of fairness.”
After Warren finished talking, the panel immediately changed the subject to the fallout over the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade before Granger could ask any follow-up questions.
At no point in her rambling response did Warren even attempt to actually answer Granger’s question, likely because she, like the rest of the left, does not have an answer. There are many Americans who worked hard and were able to pay off their college loans, and many more Americans who didn’t go to college because they knew that they couldn’t afford to pay off those loans, but the left doesn’t care about them. In fact, those are the people whose tax money will be used to “forgive” student loan debt for the people who irresponsibly took out loans that they could not afford.
