QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Democrats’ student loan socialism is a slap in the face to working Americans who sacrificed to pay their debt or made different career choices to avoid debt. A wildly unfair redistribution of wealth toward higher-earning people.”
Mitch McConnell

“Pay your own damn loans. Ex-college students aren’t the only people with debt. And why should blue collar workers subsidize college graduates. And where’s Biden’s constitutional authority to forgive loans?”
Mark Levin

“There is no such thing as student loan forgiveness. There is only student loan transferral, where the debt is transferred from the person who took out the loan to someone else who did not take out the loan.”
Matt Walsh

“If you can cancel debt with no costs or repercussions, then let’s just cancel the national debt.”
Carol Roth

“It would represent a middle finger to the Constitution, which vests legislative power in Congress, not the president. It would represent a middle finger to Congress, which has not given the executive branch the authority to give $10,000 each to millions of college students. It would represent a middle finger to the Department of Education, which found last year that it ‘does not have statutory authority to provide blanket or mass cancellation, compromise, discharge or forgiveness of student loan principal balances, and/or to materially modify the repayment amounts or terms thereof.’ Nancy Pelosi confirmed last summer that ‘the president can’t do it — so that’s not even a discussion.’ She said, ‘Not everybody realizes that, but the president can only postpone, delay but not forgive.’ Biden’s response? A middle finger.”Charles C.W. Cooke

“Biden’s decision to waive student loan debt will increase inflation and is another gift to the rich. Tennesseans should not be forced to pay for coastal elites to get their PhD in gender studies.”
Senator Marsha Blackburn

“Student loan debt relief is spending that raises demand and increases inflation. It consumes resources that could be better used helping those who did not, for whatever reason, have the chance to attend college. It will also tend to be inflationary by raising tuitions.”
Economist Larry Summers, Obama’s senior economic advisor

“My mortgage identifies as a student loan. Can I stop paying now?” —Benny Johnson

“Every piece I read about “banned books” always ends up being a story about how progressives believe they’re the only ones who should be allowed to decide what is read in schools/libraries.“
David Harsanyi


“The greatest threat to our democracy is not Trump voters or parents protesting at school board meetings, but the permanent Washington elite which has weaponized the govt and teamed up with corporate media to intimidate and silence those who dare to disagree with them.”
Tulsi Gabbard

“Americans all across the country are back at work in record numbers. [Twenty-two] states — a record high — have unemployment rates at or below 3 percent, and 14 states now have their lowest unemployment rate on record. This is the latest sign that my Administration’s economic plan is working.”
Joe Biden, who failed to mention that most of those states are Republican-led

“This is a national security crisis. When so many of our children are not learning, we’re in trouble. We need STEM education. Heavens, we need children who can just read and write. How about that? And add one plus one. We don’t have that.”
Virginia Lt. Governor Winsome Sears

“We urge you to take immediate action to address any threats of violence against law enforcement that appear on your company’s platforms. … Violent rhetoric and personal threats and attacks toward law enforcement officers have deadly consequences.”
House Oversight Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and House National Security Subcommittee Stephen Lynch (D-MA) in letters to social media platforms

 “So, where were these protest letters back in 2020 when their Marxist Black Lives Matter radicals and antifa of self-styled ‘anti-fascist’ fascists constituencies were burning down inner-cities, battling and murdering cops, all while beingstirred into violence frenzies by Democrats? Social media platforms were instrumental in fomenting the ‘summer of rage’ violence.”
Mark Alexander

“Fauci’s resignation will not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic. He will be asked to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the lab leak.”
Senator Rand Paul

“In January, a GOP Congress should hold Fauci fully accountable for his dishonesty, corruption, abuse of power, and multiple lies under oath. Never in our nation’s history has one arrogant bureaucrat destroyed more people’s lives.”
Senator Ted Cruz

“There is nothing that I cannot defend. I can respect disagreement, but there’s a big difference between disagreement and investigating somebody for doing something terrible.”
Anthony Fauci, rejecting GOP calls for investigation

“You don’t get to say whether you go. You get a congressional subpoena, you show up, or you get the Steve Bannon treatment.”
Megyn Kelly responding to Fauci’s claim that he’ll “consider” appearing before Congress

“Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac.”
Ron DeSantis

“The government’s disrespect for marriage and family inherently undermines the family and contributes to cultural degradation.”
Johnny B. Davis

“I have a controversial idea about paying off student loan debt: don’t take out debt you will likely be unable to pay off, and don’t ask others to pay off your debts.”
Ben Shapiro

“So if She-Hulk gets mad enough, she can open a pickle jar by herself?”
Frank J. Fleming

“I’m not actually worried about the cost of college because my son is 6 foot 5 so he’s gonna get a women’s basketball scholarship.”
Jimmy Failla
