Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is one of the Democratic 2020 candidates who has been pushing to get cancel a lot student debt.
She’s proposing to cancel up to $50,000 in debt for 95 percent of student loan borrowers in the United States, about 42 million people without Congressional approval.
Needless to say, this raises a lot of questions and a father at one of Warren’s events had a few things he wanted to ask her.
I don’t know who this man is who confronted debWarren on this video.
But gotta say, not every hero wears a cape. I love you for saying it for all of us.
A Father confronts @SenWarren
Father : My daughter is in school, I saved all my money just to pay student loans Can I have my money back?
Warren: of course not
Father: so you want to help those who don't save any money and the ones that do the right thing get screwed? pic.twitter.com/EY8M57tj9F

The dad explained to Warren that his daughter was in school and he saved his money to pay for it. So he asked if could he get it back. Warren said, “Of course not.” He then explained how he did the right thing but his friend who made more didn’t, spent his money on other things, and got loans. So he says, you are rewarding that behavior while he, the dad, wouldn’t get his money back.
Warren looks as though she completely doesn’t even get what he’s saying, which makes him more upset, justifiably.
From Daily Caller:
The man mentioned that he worked a “double shift” to pay for his daughter’s education, and accused Warren of mocking his life story.
“You’re laughing at me!” the man said.
Warren denied that she was laughing, but the dad was not buying her explanation.
“That’s exactly what you’re doing!” he said. “We did the right thing and we get screwed!”
Doesn’t seem fair, right? Because none of this is about fairness, despite their claim. It’s about government control and pandering to their base to get elected. Notice how she just doesn’t give a darn and moves right on to the next person.
Wow – not a word he said registered with her. She's in her own world.

The entire Dem platform, in one tweet.
This is why i oppose the entire idea, its unfairly benefit their direct constituency and screws over everyone else.
They want to buy the votes thru pandering and tell the rest of us who worked for it we don't count.

Pay close attention people. This is exactly what socialism looks like. It fails because everyone stops contributing and everyone keeps taking. Eventually every single person ends up flat broke on welfare dependent on the government who cannot provide anything to anyone.

MASSIVE slap in the face to every responsible American that lived frugally in order to repay their student loans, which they took out VOLUNTARILY to pay for a useful degree that would eventually pay for itself, with hard work and dedication. Democrats=evil.

I feel for him. That father could've delayed retirement saving or lifestyle spending so their child can go to college. It's a slap in the face for many people who sacrificed for their kids.
