AOC argues that ‘student loans are a scam’ because she’s apparently too stupid and lazy to pay hers back [video]

Like, attention, you guys. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has, like, totally got the most rock-solidest of cases for wiping out student loan debt:

.@AOC on bill to eliminate all student debt: "It was literally easier for me to become the youngest woman in American history elected to Congress than it is to pay off my student loan debt."

What’s her point?
That raise AOC is demanding may not be enough for her to wipe out her student loan debt, so we’d better just cancel all student loan debt so she can be fiscally responsible and stuff.
Quite a squad AOC’s got for herself there. And why let people keep more of their own money when we can just steal it from them and use it to pay off her debts and those of other students who clearly didn’t learn in college that loans are supposed to be paid back?

Does AOC know that people frequently take out loans in order to buy homes and make large purchases? Should mortgages be wiped out, too? And does she know that furthering ones education will likely require more loans? Loans whose amount will only increase as long as the government promises to stay in the education subsidy game?
All she knows is that it’s, like, so unfair to expect people who borrow money to pay it back.
What does this say to all of us in our 40’s who just got done paying off our student loans???

You know who else accepted it, Jane? All the students who took out loans to pay for college. All the ingrates who elected to borrow money and are now demanding that taxpayers foot the bill.
I have student loan debt. It’s not a scam. It’s a reasonable system of lending that allowed me to attend college with funds I didn’t have at the time. Thanks to my degree I’ll earn more than the average American and am easily paying back my loans

I understand you want them eliminated, but how is it a scam? When I took out student loans for college, there was nothing dishonest about it. It's pretty straight forward ... borrow money, pay it back with interest.

Exactly. This isn’t difficult. And if it is, then you never should’ve gotten the loan in the first place.
I suppose one could argue that student loans are a scam in the sense that institutions probably should not be loaning money to people seeking degrees that are unlikely to provide the economic return needed to service the loan comfortably.

Fair point.
Sounds like what our government does every damn day. And AOC et al. want more of that.
