41 congressional Democrats have student loan debt
“Free” college and student loan debt forgiveness (translation: taxpayer condemnation) are common policy positions of influential Democrats, particularly the 2020 primary field.

For some Democratic members of Congress, it’s also personal: They still have student loan debt. And their silence suggests they don’t want to pay it back.

The Washington Free Beacon polled the 41 Democratic members with student loan debt and was only able to find one willing to exempt himself from taxpayer-funded forgiveness legislation: Rep. Darren Soto of Florida (above).

The rest didn’t respond when asked whether members of Congress should be exempt from this taxpayer bailout that favors high earners: ...

""For some Democratic members of Congress, it’s also personal: They still have student loan debt. And their silence suggests they don’t want to pay it back.""

Democrat policy, Democrat cerebration and Democrat judgment.
Why not to vote for Democrat.

THanks, Mike, that should be the way to win. The media is betting that they can get more and more immigrants into the country who will be able to get driver's licenses and then vote (for their party), not to mention all the cheating they usually do with dead people still on the voter's rolls.
Another key area to keep an eye on is who is in charge of the Elections Department in each county, and in each state, how are the districts drawn up.

That's ok. If the 100 vote, and the thousand or ten thousand vote, it won't matter what the media does. Except shake their empty heads at the results. We should be hearing very soon poll results assuring us that 100 is more than 10000.

I can say that there is an undercurrent within the homeschool community to explore skilled trades rather than default to college. Dr. Voddie Baucham has a sermon/presentation out there called "Heaven or Harvard?" that addresses this issue well.

And the irony is, the trades are getting increasingly demanding on the mind. Mechanics and appliance repairmen, for example, now often work with computerized test equipment. Yet even without these, fault-isolation skills are on par with the kind of software debugging I do. BTW, this was not taught to me in college. In many subjects, college today is merely a glorified (but very expensive) trade school. I will refrain from ranting about the so-called "Liberal Arts."

Thanks, Neil, you are illustrating how un-Christian the US society is. The Bible clearly teaches people to work with their hands, but I doubt you will hear any sermons on this, nor any church-sponsored events that promote the trades.
I am thinking of that guy Mike Rowe who does encourage the trades with is program, which is not overtly Christian. His show is about him trying on different jobs, which some could say is more about his own vanity than anything biblical.
Instead, there should be a Trades Conference sponsored by some large church or denomination to give dignity and honor to the trades.
And, maybe another conference would be of all the college grads, now in their late 20s and 30s, working for low pay in restaurant jobs. In fact, fast food restaurants that seem to have 'help needed' signs in their windows should have a subtitle to those signs, 'college degree not needed.'
And, this is still another case where churches and many who call themselves Christians can go on and on about End Times, Replacement Theology, etc, but can they give the biblical rules for dealing with widows? what women should do with their lives? I Timothy 5 gives the guidelines, who teaches that?

I think the trades are a great option for young people today, not least because plumbing, painting, electrical, HVAC, etc. cannot be outsourced to China. Yet Mexicans dominate these, despite language barriers, because middle-class Americans are vocational snobs, forgetting the Protestant doctrine that all honest labor is honorable before God. Plus, no teaching by idiot academic Marxists.

My maternal grandfather was an electrician and lived reasonably well thru the Great Depression. They were even able to help unemployed neighbors looking for odd jobs.

Neil,

Very good and wise comment!

I cannot even fathom someone taking out a loan to go to college. When I was young, if families didn't have money, then they didn't have money. They should learn a trade and work.

Or they could go into the military and get the GI bill.

Yes, the love of money is the root of all evil.

This is nothing new. Circa 495 B.C. [not B.C.E.], the Roman republic's Plebeian class was so badly indebted, they revolted against the Patricians, causing the office of the Tribune to be instituted so their interests would be represented.

In our case, middle-class Americans think nothing of taking on insane loans because for decades, they have been carpet-bombed by dissolute propaganda telling them deficit spending makes one happy. No powerful corporate or political interests advocate thrift and saving, and it isn't helped by ridiculously low bank-account interest rates and currency inflation.

Even ancient Greeks warned against love of luxury, but who does today? But hardly anyone reads them or the Bible.

Watch this issue to be a big one in 2020, whoever the Socialist Democrat Party candidate is for President. Anyone can figure it out that there are a lot of young people with big student loan debts, esp. the grad students, who will be a big help for the Party's efforts to win. Their turnout will be very different this time, just like the media coverage of the President's efforts. You will see photos in your newspaper of a 100 people gathered at a Socialist Democrat Party event, while you won't hear anything when a thousand or ten thousand show up to hear President Trump speak (just ask yourself, how did they cover the event in Orlando?).

Basic point of economics...

Things that are free are not considered valuable in the eyes of an employer. And when it's free education, they basically expect you to have done it, and have some other incentive that makes you better than the next man...

Once again this roots down to the problem we have had since Adam. Man doesn't want to take responsibility for his actions...

These candidates certainly didn't have any problem taking other peoples money to go to school, and they don't have any problem taking more people's money to pay it back...

An interesting point about this idea that the government should pay for college is that it will then become like highschool. Back in the days of one roomed school houses the Fed only payed for elementary school. So those who went to highschool were considered "educated". Then, we they started paying for highschool, college graduates were the educated ones. And if they pay for college, the holders of masters degree will be the educated ones...

At least we know why Democrats want student loans forgiven. That is, to make someone else pay their bills, a common Democrat theme. It's not fair that they have student loan debt, and you don't.

They don’t make any effort to pay off the national debt, QC, so why should they pay their own?

Actually, I found this news report very humorous. To have college debt as a Congressman, considering the money they make, is somewhat baffling. Guess hey also have extraordinary expenses? Either way, clearly seems like a conflict of interest.
