As Congress’s resident socialists tell it, the Americans who hold a collective $1.6 trillion in student loan debt are victims of an exploitative higher education system, robbed of their financial future through no fault of their own.
That’s why Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and their cohorts introduced a bill this week to cancel all student loan debt and make college free.
"We have to both make public colleges tuition free and forgive all student loan debt at the same time," @AOC said Monday, introducing legislation with @BernieSanders. t.co/oJ6D2oP5wL pic.twitter.com/4gUNR4T2Tj
