    Hard-working iron workers in south-central Pennsylvania have no patience for President Biden's $500 billion student loan giveaway, and they spoke out against what they feel is the unfairness of the plan.

    Various workers at the Donsco, Inc. iron foundry aired their grievances to Fox News about Biden's intention to cancel $10,000 of borrowers' student loans if they make less than $125,000 annually while Pell Grant recipients in the same boat will receive $20,000.

    "It's not going to affect the people that are here, the people that are actually out doing all the work," said supervisor Jim Davis. "He said he's going to help the people in the bigger cities because that's what [he] wants."

    Biden has visited Pennsylvania more than any other state with the exception of Delaware since he was inaugurated. At the end of August, an Emerson College poll on Pennsylvania found Biden had a 39% approval rating there; 57% of respondents disapproved of Biden's handling of the presidency.

    Cancer survivor Francisco Hernández, who returned to work after retiring because of the inflation that has surged under Biden, snapped, "A lot of those families are rich. They have the money to pay it off, so they get a break and they get to sit on their couch and their kids are stuck with a degree they can't even use."

    "The sad part is the rich aren't going to pay for this, we are," he continued. "Everything is a gift, but that goes on the back of our debt and the taxpayers are the ones who have to cover it."

    Iron worker Tony Bell echoed, "I think it's a bad idea. Donsco is always hiring people, these college kids can always come here on their time off and work and pay their debt back."

    "If they signed the contract they should pay for it," Kevin Wasileski agreed. "'Why should I pay for somebody else's college? ... I don't think a plumber should be paying for a doctor's free medical school."

    Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) told Fox & Friends, "I worked in a factory right out of high school. ... Americans work hard, and it's really sad that the president thinks that he knows better than the American people how to spend their money. ... He's really out of touch with what is going on in America."

Are you in favor of the Joe Biden Executive Order, just weeks before the midterm elections, to shift the Higher Education debt, of up to $10,000.00 per individual, to the taxpayers of this Republic (estimated at 1/2 trillion)?
  Yes, it costs so much to go to college, and the right job is so hard to find in my focus of study.
  No, one's individual debt should be born by the beneficiary of that debt; certainly NOT by others that work to support their own families and pay their own debts, and their taxes.
  I am bereft of knowledge, so who cares?

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

After one full year of the Biden /Harris Administration: Does Joe Biden have the intellectual capacity, and, or the energy to lead the United States of America through the mess that he predominately created ... in just one year?
