The left is screaming for more freebies once again (surprise!!). Remember taxpayers, you funded your own education, and now you should fund somebody else's education.

For those just getting here, the polled and found 41 congressional Democrats that have student loans. One said they would exempt themselves from the government bailing them out. The remaining 40 did not respond to the questions.

Worth mentioning because a lot of people don't read the articles and go by the headlines.... And many do read the articles and have horrible reading comprehension.

Either way, let's hope the Democrats don't succeed with their plan to forgive student loans.

The minute anyone tries to take my tax dollars to repay student loan debt I'll be joining the class action lawsuit and be asking for the money I paid back plus interest which would be over 50k.

Why would student loan forgiveness be the straw that breaks your back?

Honestly curious.

How many refused the gains they made from the bail out of Wall Street?

Excellent point. If anyone was okay with tax dollars being used to boost their net worth, they should be okay with tax dollars being used to boost someone else's net worth.

One seems acceptable and the other not for some reason. I have never figured out why.

Did you read the article.

Of the 41 contacted only one responded...that doesn't mean that the others would take the money or even support the policy.

And yes a handful of Democrats support student loan assistance or payment but many don't.

Nice to see someone actually read the article. Student loan debt is not public unless disclosed so I don’t know what the real numbers are from the Free Beacon. Sounds like just one of many partisan hit pieces. I also don’t see the polling question, if I was asked if I would rather the government pay back my student loan that would be a yes.
