    On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer cursed Republicans who oppose President Biden's White House's student debt forgiveness plan.

    Schumer made his remarks at a press conference where he was joined by hard-Left House Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Mondaire Jones (D-NY).

    "Those damn Republicans," Schumer raged. "They are bellyaching, you know, when anyone helps regular people. When they give tax cuts to the rich, they say they're helping the middle class. When we help the middle class, they say we're helping the rich."

    "They only want to help the rich," Schumer continued. "The reason they don't this is all of their rich friends ... might have to pay a little more in taxes. Disgraceful, disgraceful, disgraceful."

    Later in the day, Arizona GOP Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed suit against the Biden administration policy, making Arizona the seventh state to sue the Biden administration over the issue. Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Carolina had already filed suit.

    "The president's action is contrary to several recent United States Supreme Court decisions striking down federal agencies' assertion of power never granted to them by Congress," Brnovich stated. "Despite being told by members of congress he cannot pursue such an action, Biden is relying on the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act (HEROES Act) and the COVID-19 pandemic. The HEROES Act was a response to the September 11th attacks to relieve active-duty personnel from financial hardship while defending our nation."

    "The act also includes individuals who reside in disaster areas affected by a national emergency. The president attempts to stretch the HEROES Act to assert authority over all borrowers in the country, citing the COVID-19 pandemic as a national emergency and the entire United States as a disaster area," he added.

    Arkansas Republican Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, who is leading the effort by the other six states, had similar reasoning to opposing Biden's plan.

    "It's patently unfair to saddle hard-working Americans with the loan debt of those who chose to go to college," Rutledge stated. "The Department of Education is required, under the law, to collect the balance due on loans. And President Biden does not have the authority to override that."

    In the lawsuit Rutledge filed, it quotes a study from Penn Wharton University of Pennsylvania contending that the majority of the mass debt cancellation will "accrue[ ] to the debt borrowers in the top 60% of the income distribution." The lawsuit adds, "And none of the benefit will accrue to those who worked and paid their debt."

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?

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

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.
