The FREELOADER AWARD is given in recognition of outstanding mooching. Here are this year’s nominees.
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) gave and forgave loans to 13 Republican members of Congress. The GOP also happens to be largely against student loan forgiveness. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called Biden’s forgiveness plan “a slap in the face to working Americans.”
“Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of 13 Republican members of Congress who owns or partially owns a business that received a PPP loan that the Small Business Administration (SBA) ultimately forgave. Greene’s loan was reportedly worth $180,000. The announcement comes after the House Judiciary GOP tweeted in response to Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, “If you take out a loan, you pay it back. Period.” – Center for American Progress (CAP) Action.
The GOP packed Supreme Court blocked President Biden’s Student Debt Relief Plan. “Let me get this straight… Students getting relief from onerous debt is unconstitutional. But justices secretly getting hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars in gifts, vacations, and free housing and education for their family members is just fine.” – Robert Reich
Debt relief for the rich. Suffering for students.
Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan eliminates an estimated $300 billion in debt, the majority of which will reportedly help those earning $75,000 or less annually. The dual-sided nature of the PPP loans’ congressional infiltration has been well known, but the GOP denying another form of relief is making some Americans scratch their heads.
TakeAway: Call out the Moochers who thrive off your tax payer dollars while cutting benefits for students and Americans in need.
