After all, the Biden team and Congressional dems agree, that universal healthcare will help you, a $15 per hour minimum / living wage is what is needed and of course, how many Americans are beyond struggling under the crushing weight of student debt.
They’re doing all this for you, the voter. And as thanks, you voted for the Biden/Harris ticket, because you trust Uncle Joe and the democrats to be the straight shooters they are.
But are they? Is their plan to forgive student loan debt for you, the people, the voters, or is it rather for leftist members of Congress who, by dizzying coincidence, are still saddled with college debt despite their relatively exorbitant annual salary of $174,000.
Gee, I wonder. read more
No and why it want to. Neither Democrats nor Republicans have ever proposed such a thing, and most never will. But some on the right are at least proposing some changes.

6 Serious Counterproposals To Democrats’ Insane Higher Ed Bailouts
The student loan debt bubble will soon burst, and the proper solution is not to throw $1.6 trillion of taxpayers’ money at a government-created problem.
Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, both of whom are running for president, each have a higher ed plan: Warren’s would pay off $50,000 of student debt for those earning less than $100,000, and Bernie’s would pay off practically all of America’s $1.6 trillion in student debt and make state college “free.” He’d attempt to pay for it by taxing stock and bond trades. read more

The ultra-radical website, the Nation, posted an article on ways to protest and combat president-elect Trump. Yes, still 2-1/2 months until his inauguration, and left is already devising ways to defeat Trump’s agenda. No one truly knows what his agenda will be yet, but that makes scant difference to the whiners of the left.
However, they admit that, “if we expect to protest Donald Trump into submission, then we’ve grievously misjudged our opponent. Gee – it sounds a lot like they hope Trump will fail.
Imagine if someone from the right said this about Obama. Oh – that’s right – someone did. Recall Rush Limbaugh said of Obama in 2008: “I hope he fails.” And recall the wails of discontent, as if Rush wanted Jesus to fail – although to the left, Obama was their Jesus.
The author, Ravi Mangla explains that the best way to resist Trump is not to, but instead, to distract him. He tells the reader to, “Run wild circles around him in a hall of mirrors. Set fires and leave him to put them out. Each time he thinks he’s cleaned up the mess, make a new one.” Yes, that’s real constructive. Of course, these radicals no nothing of being constructive. Rabble-rousing – setting figurative (and literal) fires is the only thing they know. read more
