Fading presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren was called-out at a recent campaign event heading into the Iowa Caucus this week, where a father who paid his daughter’s student loan debt asked the far-left Senator if he “can have his money back?”
“My daughter is in school, I saved all my money just to pay student loans. Can I have my money back?” asked the father.
“Of course not,” said Warren.
“So you want to help those who don’t save any money and the ones that do the right thing get screwed?” fired-back the angry dad.

Warren double-down on her pledge to cancel student debt for millions of Americans last Friday; vowing to begin the process on “Day One” of her presidency with or without Congressional support.
“Student loan debt is a crisis—and it’s only growing larger. This is crushing an entire generation and holding back our economy. That’s why I will act on day one of my presidency to start cancelling student debt and getting relief to families,” posted Warren on social media.

“Presidential contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Tuesday that she would begin to forgive student loan debt on the first day of her administration, using legal tools that would allow her to bypass Congress,” reports CNBC.
“I will start to use existing laws on day one of my presidency to implement my student loan debt cancellation plan that offers relief to 42 million Americans — in addition to using all available tools to address racial disparities in higher education, crack down on for-profit institutions, and eliminate predatory lending,” writes Warren.
