Fox’s heavy-hitters go hard on Biden’s student loan ‘scam’; It’s breaking the law, bribing voters!

Fox News hosts Jesse Watters, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity all branded President Biden’s insane $300 billion student loan forgiveness on Wednesday as a blatant attempt at bribing voters and placating his radical base.

Jesse Watters hammered Biden for the self-serving move, saying, “The president is just breaking the law, bribing voters and Congress doesn’t care. Where’s Joe getting the money from? Is he just going to steal Nancy’s purse and cut checks? Pelosi impeached Trump over a phone call.”

“She said it was an obstruction of Congress and an abuse of power. How is Joe raiding the Treasury behind Congress’ back and buying votes before an election not an abuse of power, not an obstruction of Congress? Congress doesn’t care. The media doesn’t care. The journalists are probably getting their loans wiped anyway, but the American people care. What about responsible parents who save to send their kids to college and are now getting totally screwed?” he railed.

Watters went on to broach the subject of angry parents who are incensed by Biden’s actions.

Today, my Administration is meeting my campaign commitment with targeted debt relief to folks from families who need it most.

If you received a Pell Grant while in college and make less than $125,000 a year, you are eligible for up to $20,000 in debt reduction.

There is an entire generation now saddled with unsustainable student loan debt in exchange for a college degree.

We’re making incredible progress bringing relief to those that need it and fixing the student loan system so it works for working people.

— President Biden (@POTUS) August 24, 2022

If you make under $125,000, you’re eligible for up to $10,000 in student loan debt relief.

And almost ninety percent of the benefit will go to folks making less than $75,000 a year.

“American parents are very, very angry about this. This is a war on the working class. Workers with high school diplomas shouldn’t be paying off loans for grad students. Biden’s like the reverse Robin Hood. He’s robbing the poor to pay the rich, and he’s doing it right in front of our faces. You’re going to be paying for this,” Watters proclaimed.

“This loan cancelation will cost the average taxpayer over 2 grand a year, and these liberal colleges are just going to jack up tuition now. Same thing happened with electric cars. Remember the second the White House announced $8,000 rebates, Ford raised the price of an electric car $8,000. It’s going to cost me a half a mil just to send Jesse Jr. to college. I’m going to have to be working three shows to pay for that. Does anybody even understand what hard work means anymore?” he asked.

Tucker Carlson stepped up to the plate to batter the president over his politically motivated pronouncement.

“If you wanted to improve the country by disbursing billions of tax dollars, you would help people… who worked hard to pay [their] debts,” he stated on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“If you really wanted to go forward with debt forgiveness, then you could make an argument for that, who you award it to? Well, you would award to people who might conceivably improve the country you live in,” he posited.

“Who would that be? Well, let’s see. Dental and veterinary students, structural engineering majors, people who did something useful in college, but you would never in a million years even consider giving a tax subsidy to lawyers or gender studies majors, or diversity administrators. Why? Because you don’t want more of those people. We have way too many of them already. And then you would never send money to anyone who supported BLM riots or anyone who claimed on Twitter that America is a systemically racist country,” Carlson noted.

Then Carlson got to the heart of it and how Biden’s loan forgiveness is a liberal ploy.

“Why would you send them money? Why would you send the fruits of America to people who hate America? What is that? It’s suicidal. No sane person would do that. So, what you’re watching, as always, is class warfare. They reward the top and the bottom, people who don’t need it and people weren’t trying, and then they crush the struggling middle, the law-abiding, the people who want to do the right thing, who have collective spirit. They hurt those people,” he added.

“Why would you forgive the college debt of someone who spent six years majoring in oppression studies at Long Beach State? You would only do that if you’re engaging in the ugliest kind of partisan politics. Reward my voters. It’s the question of paying people to watch Joy Reid. It’s like subsidizing an NPR pledge drive. The message? They do not care about you at all, and they’re no longer pretending,” the Fox News host asserted.

Likewise, Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted Biden over forgiving the debt.

“A big announcement from the White House, a brand new, generous $300 billion handout to Ivy League graduates, sociology majors, and many other irresponsible men and women that racked up massive student loans and no longer feel like paying them back. Isn’t that nice? Now Biden is calling it a loan forgiveness program,” Hannity charged.

I have a controversial idea about paying off student loan debt: don’t take out debt you will likely be unable to pay off, and don’t ask others to pay off your debts.

“In reality, it should be called the Biden Bribery and Vote Buying Act of 2022, all paid for by you, the hardworking American people and truck drivers and farmers and welders and small business owners and members of the military and waiters and waitresses and bartenders and taxpayers that never went to college, or maybe they already paid off their student loans,” he pointed out.

“Well, now they’re going to be on the hook for the loans taken out by what, a Harvard grad who majored in what gender studies. Now, according to legend, Robin Hood took from the rich and gave to the poor. But in the Washington swamp, Joseph Robinette Biden, well, he takes from the poor and the middle class in order to bail out the elites, because they’re going to be the beneficiaries here. Now, this massive $300 billion payout is either going to be paid for with your tax dollars or by simply printing more money,” Hannity claimed, alluding to where the money would come from.

All three conservative hosts expressed the outrage that much of America is feeling after Biden’s announcement that he will wipe out some student loan debt. Something the radical left has demanded for a long, long time.
