It’s a free-for-all I tell you.
No, I’m not referring to a brawl. I’m referring to the Democrats’ plan to provide free tuition, free healthcare, free government-funded jobs, housing, and free abortions. Let’s get started.
Free tuition and student loan forgiveness.
Nothing is free. The financial burden imposed on every taxpayer would be exhausting. I reject the idea that hard -working Americans who did not go to college would have to pay off the loans of those who did. By the same token, is it fair that those who went to college and paid off their loans be forced to pay off everyone else’s loans?
Colleges and universities have failed to provide their students with tools needed for a career and many graduates are not prepared to earn a living and pay off the enormous debt they have incurred. Federal loans account for $1.6 trillion in outstanding student debt and more than a million are defaulting on their loans each year. Should we be on the hook for the inability of others to pay their debts? I think not.
Guaranteed jobs, free housing, Medicare-for-all and abortions.
This is the brainchild of Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) “vision.” She calls it “Ilhan’s Vision.” This “vision” will create a tax system that will increase income tax for the wealthiest Americans.
How will this be funded? By taking more from our middle-income earners and retirees’ incomes and target family-owned businesses. She also says, “We need to move towards publicly and cooperatively-owned models of housing for all Income levels.”
For all Income levels? Seriously? Does this mean that someday we will live together and rub elbows with the likes of Nancy, Chuck, Bill and Hillary and all politicians in publicly owned housing? I can’t wait.
With apologies to Andy Rooney – we miss you.
