Foxx Speaks Against Biden’s Retroactive Free College Scheme
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 7, 2022
Today, Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) spoke on the House Floor in opposition to the Biden administration’s radical student loan forgiveness agenda:
Republican Leader Foxx's remarks:
“With his poll numbers tanking, President Biden is trying to buy off voters with mass student loan forgiveness.
“While this elitist handout may win over his radical progressive base, it’s a slap in the face to taxpayers, especially those who never went to college or spent years paying off their own loans.
“Make no mistake, blanket loan forgiveness is simply retroactive free college.
“Why should a farmer in Idaho or a construction worker in New Jersey pay the tuition bills of an Ivy League lawyer or a wealthy doctor?
“Taxpayers are already footing the bill for Biden’s student loan repayment moratorium at the cost of $5 billion every month. Now the Biden administration wants to take hundreds of billions more for his student loan forgiveness scam.
