When you make empty promises, they come back to bite you in the a$$.
Warren was recently presented with one of those “moments” that can make or break a campaign… and she failed.
No Money for You!
We are now less than two weeks away from the opening caucus in Iowa.
Warren is out on the campaign trail telling everyone that she will forgive their student loans and in the future, nobody will have to pay for college.
This, of course, makes those of that paid for our college tuition or parents that have scrimped and saved for their kids’ education wonder… what about us?
Are we going to get all that money back that we repaid the government?
Are parents with average incomes that saved for 20 years to put their kids through school without student loans going to get the cost of their tuition back?
Warren was asked this exact question at a campaign stop, and here was her reaction…
A Father confronts @SenWarren
Father : My daughter is in school, I saved all my money just to pay student loans Can I have my money back?
Warren: of course not
Father: so you want to help those who don't save any money and the ones that do the right thing get screwed? pic.twitter.com/EY8M57tj9F

If you could not hear the full audio, this is what was said…
Father: My daughter is in school, I saved all my money just to pay student loans Can I have my money back?
Warren: Of course not!
Father: So you want to help those who don’t save any money and the ones that do the right thing get screwed?
Obviously, this is not a good look for Warren, but it should also serve as a staggering wake up call for most Americans about how empty these promises are.
Instead of forgiving student loans with a blank check, what about putting a stipulation on the loans.
First and foremost, the student must finish college and get a degree.
If you want to create a program, reward these kids for performance, with different percentages based on grades as well as a qualifying grade to get any loan forgiveness.
How about revamping the entire program so the loans are not handed out like cheese samples at the grocery store?
Or, better yet, how about teaching people some responsibility and making them repay their loans!
How about putting restrictions on schools in terms of the ridiculous college tuition they charge in the first place?
There are plenty of ways to go other than outright erasing the ledger. Oh wait, that’s right, someone still has to foot the bill for all that money that was loaned out and guess who that is?
So, elect Warren, and people like you and I that have paid for our education with our own money now get to pay for the education of hundreds of thousands of others because of Warren’s socialist policies and promises in exchange for votes.
Sorry, Liz, that is not how things work!
