Amid reports that President Biden will once again yield to the left-wing cabal controlling the White House by announcing on Wednesday the cancellation of up to $10,000 in student loan debt per borrower, U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., is pushing the frail president to “go as broad and as deep as the hurt is.”
And in doing so, according to the radical left squad member, Biden will “save lives.”
“With the stroke of a pen, @POTUS can change lives and save lives. He must #CancelStudentDebt and go as broad and as deep as the hurt is,” Pressley tweeted Tuesday night.

Pressley has called student debt “policy violence,” and for how deep she wants Biden to go, the Democrat introduced a House resolution in Dec. 2020 calling on then President-Elect Joe Biden to cancel $50,000 in federal student loan debt via executive authority for every borrower.
The “squad” has been very vocal in advocating for the cancellation of student loan debt and most, if not all, stand to personally benefit from such a move.
The queen bee of the group, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly owes between $15,001 and $50,000 in federal student debt, according to her latest financial disclosure. U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., reportedly has between $15,001 and $50,000 in outstanding student loans. U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., disclosed between $50,001 and $100,000 in outstanding law school student debt. One of the newer members, U.S. Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., reportedly owes between $100,001 and $250,000.
As for Pressley, it’s not clear how much she owes, if any, today, but she has previously revealed that at one point she defaulted on her student loans — naturally, she made it all about race.
“Like 85% of Black students, I had to borrow; and like so many of those students, I also defaulted on those loans,” Pressley said at a Feb. 2021 American Federation of Teachers press conference. “We know that Black and Brown students are five times more likely to default for those loans, than our white counterparts.”
As for Biden talking action on Wednesday, as reported, his water carriers in the media will have to pretend that this did not happen earlier this year:

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from skeptical social media users who have a different idea on who will be harmed here:

With a stroke of a pen, that would increase inflation causing hardship on everyone, so that middle to upper class families could feel better about not meeting their obligations.
