Warren Trashes 'Obscene Profiting off Students, While Textbook She Wrote Costs $250



Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts introduced legislation last month that would cancel student loan debt for tens of millions of Americans.

The senator previously stated it’s “obscene” to profit off of students, but she’s doing exactly that with a textbook she authored priced at $258.97.

Warren blamed the collective over $1.5 trillion in outstanding student loan debt on Washington, D.C.

“My very first bill when I got to the Senate was legislation to tackle the growing student debt crisis because I was sick of Washington allowing the wealthy to pay less, while burying tens of millions of Americans in mountains of student loan debt,” Warren said in a statement when she and Democratic House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina introduced the student loan debt forgiveness bill in late July, The Hill reported.

“Since then, Washington has only allowed this crisis to get worse — especially for people of color. Enough is enough,” she added.

Forbes reported the legislation would offer loan forgiveness for 95 percent of borrowers and entirely cancel the loan debt for 75 percent.

“The student debt crisis is real and it’s crushing millions of people — especially people of color,” Warren said in June, according to Forbes. “It’s time to decide: Are we going to be a country that only helps the rich and powerful get richer and more powerful, or are we going to be a country that invests in its future?”

The plan offers debt forgiveness up to $50,000 for all with a household income under $100,000 and gradually lowers the amount until those earning over $250,000 per year are not eligible.

Forbes reported that the senator’s bill closely mirrors a campaign proposal she made in April. At that time, she proposed an annual 2 percent tax on “ultra-millionaires” — defined as those with a net worth of $50 million in order to pay off the student loans.


In 2013, then-newly elected Sen. Warren called the fact the federal government profited from student loans “obscene.”

“Instead of helping our students, the government is making a profit on student loans,” Warren said. “That is wrong. It is morally wrong. That is obscene.”

As an aside, while the program was in the black in 2013, the Congressional Budget Office is projecting a $31 billion deficit in the federal student loan program over the next decade.

Anything Elizabeth Warren wrote is only good for one thing. Assuming the pages arent too glossy and stiff.

She's right that it's all the fault of D.C.

When they hand out free money and massive loans, the cost of college correspondingly skyrockets. We'll keep raising prices because the government will keep giving out more free money and loans.

D.C. ruins most things it touches that are beyond it's original scope. Education is just one of many examples.

Bingo , winner winner chicken dinner. The thought these D卐M☭CRATZ vomit out that making it "free" will somehow make it oh so great for all. "HIGHER EDUCATION" is an Oxymoron in this country. Coupled with the fact primary education under unionized teachers and PC dogma is a complete joke.
The dumbing down of education and the creep of goobermint PC propaganda that has taken it's place is nearly complete.Such stupid people are the perfect sheep to be enticed with "free shit" to give up constitutional freedoms.

Why don't the marxist-leninist students bitch that the $250 is way too much for a text book and consequently it cuts into their funds to buy The Herb, condoms for buttsecks and their ability to afford an abortion?

How about everyone that had a student loan in the past and paid it off get together for a class action lawsuit to get our money back?

I watched a video segment last night of that woman jumping around on stage waving her arms around and screeching about "climate change".

If she isn't mentally ill there isn't an illegal in Texas! She is full-tilt bozo! Just what the country needs to straighten all this crap out. *hysterical laughter*
