What am I missing Tom? This what you said right:Reading isn't your strong suit. Understanding the discussion in this thread isn't your strong suit. You MAGAs are something else.
Lol. Read it again. Then read your first response to me. Maybe you'll figure it out. 75% chance you won't.What am I missing Tom? This what you said right:
Republicans - let's save billionaires millions and millions of dollars. Also Republicans - let's force college kids, and new workers, to pay tens of thousands of dollars at 7-8% interest for 20-30 years.
So explain how reading and understanding is not my strong suit?
True, but this is a separate issue unrelated to bins purse strings argument. He asked how Biden can do this without Congress. The answer is because this the money has already been approved of and spent in all the budgets today, yesterday, even 10 or 20 years ago. Biden is simply foregiving these debts.No,.. the current budget has no funding for paying off the remaining principle on the loans in question...
It doesn't need to be allocated under the Heroes Act which gives the authority to foregive loans under emergencies. Further Congressional approval is not required.The military money was allocated by congress…Trump diverted it. I think it was wrong and so did you.
You say Biden did the same thing. He didn’t. The $600B he’s using was not allocated by congress. Federal loans…to be paid back…were. Pretty big difference.
Covid was declared a national emergency. Biden could also write a new EO under the Higher Education Act which gives even broader authority to foregive loans if HEROES emergency requirement is considered too strained.There isn’t an emergency. That’s a crock of BS.
I agree this is the major hurdle.Rs also have the problem of standing. Who can sue? Even Cruz acknowledges this as being a major hurdle.
I support it because I support loan foregiveness. I would prefer Congress handle this, but it's clear that won't happen, so EO is the next best thing.I agree this is the major hurdle.
I’m surprised you support the executive branch exploiting “emergencies” and being extremely liberal…to put it mildly…with the term.
Nothing with Covid justifies bypassing congress to spend $600B to forgive student loans at this time. That’s simply bullshit.
We don’t complain when a R president uses the same gambit for shit you don’t agree with.I support it because I support loan foregiveness. I would prefer Congress handle this, but it's clear that won't happen, so EO is the next best thing.
It did go through Congress. First in 1965 and again in 2003. Both said that student loans could be foregiven.We don’t complain when a R president uses the same gambit for shit you don’t agree with.
This stuff is supposed to go through congress for a pretty good reason.
But clearing student debt loan doesn’t help poor people. You just made that up.Republican strategists this year are idiots. We're going to pretty easily take over the Senate if we just stay quiet. I know, let's get abortion outlawed.
Oops, tons of angry women come to the polls in droves.
I know, let's also try to stop Democrats from helping poor people.
I don't see how this is a winning strategy at anything other than primary elections?
