McMorris Rogers calls student loan forgiveness ‘a slap in the face’ to taxpayers | National news

(Central Square) – U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers, R-Spokane, is calling President Joe Biden’s decision to shift student loan debt from borrowers to taxpayers a “dramatic overreach of his authority” and “a slap in the face to every hardworking person.” in Eastern Washington, who will now have to pay for everything.”

“While it may sound beautiful to pretend that the president can make the debt disappear with the stroke of a pen, it is a simple belief that is fundamentally at odds with basic economic principles,” McMorris Rogers said in a statement. “Families are already paying an extra $500 a month thanks to record high inflation, and adding $300 billion to the deficit will only make things worse. The American people can’t afford to waste Democrats like kids in a candy store.”
