Watch: One Man Destroyed Senator Warren’s Student Loan Plan
Democrat presidential primary candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is no Barack Obama and an incident that many are calling her “Joe the Plumber” moment probably just put one of the final nails into the coffin of her campaign.
On Thursday a video went viral after a father confronted Warren over her student debt program because he didn’t think it was fair. The conversation occurred during an event in Grimes, Iowa and she was discussing her plan to roll back student loan debt for “about 95 percent of students who have debt.”
Here’s a rough transcript of what happened:
“I just wanted to ask one question. My daughter is getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?” he asked.
“Of course not,” Warren replied.
“So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money and those of us who did the right thing get screwed?” he asked.
“My buddy had fun, bought a car, and went on all the vacations, I saved my money. He makes more than I did. I worked a double shift,” the man pressed before accusing Warren of not taking him seriously.
“You’re laughing at me,” he said. “Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing. We did the right thing and we get screwed.”
“I appreciate your time,” Warren stated and she bolts.
Warren’s plan is that households that have an income of $100,000 or less could have up to $50,000 in student debt tipped away and households that earn to $250,000 a year would also have some debt erased as well.
This man single handily just destroyed her student loan program and the way she treated him is not going to play well with potential voters, especially in Iowa.
