In a clip from Breaking911, DeSantis said, “It’s very unfair to have a truck driver have to pay back a loan from somebody that got like a PhD in Gender Studies.” “That’s not fair. That’s not right,” DeSantis insisted as the audience broke out into applause.
DeSantis continued, “And so, you also just have the fact that if you’re going to talk about debt, then you should look at who has benefited the most from all this exorbitant debt that has been taken out over the last generation.”
“It’s the universities,” DeSantis pointed out, “They have bloated administrative budgets, although in Florida, since I’ve been governor, no tuition increases at our universities, we haven’t allowed that.” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has attempted to provide cover for Biden following the announcement but has struggled at times. “REPORTER: ‘You can’t say how much it’s going to cost. You can’t say exactly how it’s going to be paid for and you can’t say exactly who is paying for the costs […] How is it fiscally responsible?’”
“KJP: ‘…We do not see this as irresponsible.’” As we reported yesterday, Fox News’ Peter Doocy pressed Jean-Pierre after Biden announced the plan, asking who is going to pay for it.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
