GOP Rep. Presents ‘Popular’ Bill That Will Break Dems In 2022 Midterms


Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.) slammed Joe Biden’s proposed strategy to alleviate student loan debts, stating that his own brand-new Congressional bill to obstruct the policy is  “gonna be pretty popular.”

DesJarlais informed the John Solomon Reports podcast that a number of his constituents are not in favor of Biden canceling student-loan debts.

“The general consensus is that, ‘Hey, you know, we paid back our debts. We took that responsibility. Yeah, it was hard, it was painful, but we did the right thing.’ And now Biden, in what looks to be an attempt to curry favor among the young voters, is talking about canceling $10,000 per student, maybe $50,000, if you listen to [Chuck] Schumer and Elizabeth Warren and others,” DesJarlais said.

“And you know we have $1.6 trillion in debt right now — in student loan debt — back onto our $30 trillion in U.S. debt.”

Biden proposes to cancel $10,000 in student-loan financial obligation per person for those making less than $150,000 the previous year, or less than $ 300,000 for jointly-filing couples, according to The Washington Post.

DesJarlais likewise connected alleviating student-loan debts to high inflation.

“It’s just not the right time, with inflation through the roof. We haven’t seen anything like this since the Jimmy Carter era. Gas prices — everyone’s feeling it [at the] pumps. So yeah, people are getting a little angry when they’re asked for people who knowingly went into debt to get their education, took out these loans, and now they’re thinking, ‘Well, heck, we’ll just let the hard-working taxpayers cover my debt.’ And it’s not going over very well.”

“I think it’s gonna be pretty popular … I think we’ll even see some moderate Democrats show some interest. It’s hard to pass a bill when you’re not in the majority, and maybe it doesn’t get that far. But I do think the response we’re getting would give Biden some pause if he’s thinking of making a decision that he is hoping will help his popularity and help his poll numbers. and really, I think it’s going to have the opposite effect.”

The DesJarlais bill restricts the Education and Treasury secretaries and chief law officer from acting towards easing student-loan financial obligation beyond the Higher Education Act of 1965, Fox News reported.

Biden has already alleviated $25 billion in student-loan debt, the most current being the “largest single-loan discharge” in the Department of Education’s history, with 560,000 debtors who went to Corinthian Colleges having their overall $5.6 billion of debts released.

House Republicans have requested an ethics investigation into Biden’s proposed student loan debt relief plan, stating the policy “may have been promulgated by White House staffers who stand to financially benefit from the decision, especially considering recent reports that White House political appointees owe millions in student-loan debt,” Fox News reported.

Home Oversight Committee ranking member Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) and House Committee on Education and Labor Republican leader Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) asked the director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, Emory Rounds, to offer help in identifying if there is a dispute of interest amongst White House staffers relating to the proposed policy or if their households might take advantage of it.

According to a poll released by veterans advocacy group Mission Roll Call last week, 76.6% of U.S. veterans stated they protested the concept of student-loan relief for individuals who didn’t serve in the armed force.

Darrell Owens, a veteran at the America’s Warrior Partnership company, informed The Center Square recently, “You’re going to add additional recruiting challenges, saying, you know, why would I sign up for the Army and get the G.I. bill to pay for college when you could just go to college by yourself, take out student loans and have them forgiven later when it’s politically convenient.”
