(RightWing.org) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other radicals in the socialist wing of the Democratic Party are doing their best to pressure presidential hopeful Joe Biden into agreeing to cancel student debt if he takes office in January, which remains to be seen.
AOC, as she’s referred to by her leftist fan club, posted a series of tweets on November 16 promoting student loan forgiveness and tuition-free college.
“Things were bad for me, so they should stay bad for everyone else” is not a good argument against debt cancellation – student, medical, or otherwise. #CancelStudentDebt

What she’s not telling Americans is the fact the government cannot simply erase the debt, estimated at $1.6 trillion in private and federal loans as of June 2020.
Fortunately, Twitter users quickly pointed out her omission, with dozens demanding to know how she expects to pay back those massive loans. Others pointed out that they worked hard for their money and refused government loans for school seemingly only to have to pay for someone else’s free ride.
As a humorous footnote, AOC seems to have forgotten about President Donald Trump’s August executive order extending a suspension of student loan payments through the end of the year. No wonder even Democrats appear to be getting weary of AOC’s constant meddling.
