Megyn Kelly slams AOC for canceling student loans from ‘snotty students’

0

Conservative talk show host Megyn Kelly has called out progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) for advocating the eradication of student loans. Kelly said she won’t pay for the college education of “snotty” kids while interviewing the hosts of the right-wing “Ruthless” podcast on her daily SiriusXM program, “The Megyn Kelly Show,” on Monday, April 4. .

According to reports, AOC has asked President Joe Biden to completely cancel student debt after the 79-year-old promised to downplay the $1.7 trillion student debt crisis during his campaign. However, when the Democratic leader failed to deliver on his promise and did not mention it in his State of the Union address last month, the 32-year-old activist urged borrowers of money to “continue to intimidate the White House” until a decision is made in their favor comes out.

AOC’s plan would have appeared to have worked up to a point as Biden announced an extension of the reimbursement freeze until August 31. But Kelly expressed frustration about it, calling AOC a “one-trick pony,” which is apparently doing all of this to save Democrats from losing in the midterm elections in November.

The 51-year-old then asked her guests if anyone else had paid for their education. The “Ruthless” co-host Comfortably Smug said he worked as a bouncer at a college bar in New York City so he could pay for his public school tuition. He also noted, “Everyone in this country has always found a way to budget for their education, and again, that’s progressivism disguised as compassion. It’s a handout to the wealthy, liberal, coastal… it’s like the liberal coastal elite incarnate.

Kelly also recalled her student days, saying her mother had to use her late father’s entire life insurance policy to pay for her and her siblings’ tuition. She said, “We weren’t rich to begin with. So it’s not like he has a big life insurance policy,” before noting, “he had, like, the bare minimum [life insurance] for when you’re in your 40s and you’re a teacher. The political commentator also added that in addition to the insurance money, she and her older siblings had to take out loans to pay for their education.

Kelly remarked, “So do I now think I would have been better off if the feds had done it? It would have been nice, but I don’t think the neighbors should have to pay for my college education,” before adding, “There will be people…elite graduates who spend their years in journalism in trying to shame half of America for doing nothing wrong. Why should I pay for their education? I do not want !

Meanwhile, AOC reacted to Biden’s plan to extend student loan repayments. She tweeted; “I think some people read these extensions as good policy, but I don’t think those people understand the panic and mess that it’s causing people to get so close to these deadlines just to prolong the uncertainty. It doesn’t doesn’t have the effect people think it has. We should cancel them.

His Tuesday, April 5, tweet drew many comments, with one saying, “I think student loan repayments are a big drag on the economy. It prevents debtors from buying houses, cars, etc. Now is not the time to take inflationary measures. But in the long run, we definitely need a process to alleviate some of that debt burden. Another tweeted: “I was going over my bills with my wife last night to find out where that money would come from since payments were due to start on 5/1, only to learn less than 24 hours later about the extension. There’s no reason for these decisions to drag on like this! “Imagine what will happen when our generation retires after all their potential retirement money has been invested in student loans. It will be bad for everyone.” world if we let student debt swallow up our generation. It only serves as a barrier to the privileges we all deserve,” the third user added.
