Angry Dad Confronts Warren Face-To-Face On Her Student Loan Plan; ‘We Get Screwed’

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren was been slipping in the polls lately, but things just got much worse for the Massachusetts senator after one angry father blasted her face-to-face over her latest bogus policy proposal.
During a campaign stop in Grimes, Iowa, Warren held a "photo opportunity" with voters, where she thought she was just going to take "selfies" with gleeful supporters.
But things took a big turn when an angry father confronted Warren with one question that she apparently didn’t have a great answer for.
The man confronted Warren with questions over her proposed student loan forgiveness program.
“I just wanted to ask one question. My daughter is getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?” the man asked Warren.
Warren, obviously caught off-guard, snarkily replied, “Of course not.”
The angry voter’s reply was blunt and to the point.
“So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money and those of us who did the right thing get screwed,” he asked. “My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations. I saved my money,” he said. “He made more than I did. But I worked a double shift, worked extra — my daughter worked since she was 10. So, you’re laughing.”
“No, I’m not,” Warren replied.
The man shot back, saying “Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing. We did the right thing, and we get screwed.”
He's not wrong.
The father -- like millions of other Americans -- has an issue with Warren’s plan to eliminate up to $50,000 in student loan debt for households currently making less than $100,000 per year.
For context, that covers roughly 95 percent of those with outstanding student loans.
Warren has also pledged to put the program into action via executive order the day she takes office -- assuming she becomes the next president.
The plan, of course, has an astronomical price tag.
Voters, like the one who confronted Warren, aren’t happy with the idea that they worked their tails off for many years to put their children through school, while others just entering that phase in life will essentially have no worries whatsoever about student loan debt — which can often be crippling for the average, middle-class American family.
