Yesterday, House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined Bernie Sanders in the promotion of his new proposal. The proposal involves hitting Wall Street with new taxes via stocks and bonds in order to pay for the $1.6 trillion dollars which comprise student loan debt.
Ocasio-Cortez not only joined Sanders, but also other Congress members. When she spoke on the mic, Ocasio-Cortez stated that she has student loan debts. Furthermore, she declared that winning a congressional race presented less of a challenge than paying off her college debts.
AOC on Student Loan Debt in America
Student loan debt is something which countless young Americans face as they graduate from college. There are many discussions about the massive debt, accumulated interest and how this will impact the futures of young people. With the 2020 election season here, Democrats have their own proposals for erasing student loan debt. Of course, these proposals involve having Americans pick up the tab for loans which they didn’t individually take out.
