Union Takes Credit For Biden Forgiving Unlimited Student Loans For Teachers — One Teacher Wrote Off $450,000

The American Federation of Teachers union says its lobbying is to thank for the Biden administration‘s dramatic expansion of a program that forgives an unlimited amount of student loans for public employees, and that one teacher used it to get out of $450,000 in obligations.

In a move that is separate from the widely-publicized $10,000 loan forgiveness but in many ways more radical, the Biden administration used a “waiver” to stop enforcing the rules of an existing program that allows people to have all remaining student loans forgiven after 10 years of working for the government or a nonprofit.

“When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.” Rev. 6:5

(Randi Weingarten is an American labor leader, attorney, and educator)

The lack of enforcement expanded the pool of those eligible so dramatically that it forgave $9 billion in the last year, compared to $1 billion total in the program’s previous history. The program arose from a 2007 law and is called the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.

In a Labor Day message, union president Randi Weingarten said the union’s lobbying — which was also a leading cause of keeping schools closed due to coronavirus — was also responsible for the giveaway, which largely benefited the union’s members. The union played a role in helping elect Joe Biden.

“We worked directly with the Biden administration on the latest PSLF fixes and the recent game-changing announcement on student debt cancellation. Through the AFT’s advocacy around PSLF, $10 billion of student debt has been forgiven for 175,000 public service workers so far. Here’s just one example: This summer, we helped an AFT member in California wipe out her $450,000 student debt,” Weingarten said.

  1. Sing it with me: “I’d get it *one piece at a time* and it wouldn’t cost me a dime…”

    Johnny Cash sang that song about an automobile assembly line worker stealing a car one piece at a time so he could one day be a big shot. To live proud (Proverbs 11:2).

    This song was meant to be funny and now it’s become our national mindset (Jeremiah 17:9). Take what you can get one piece at a time and do it quickly! 2 Chronicles 7:14 shows us that a nation can be healed when the people humbly and prayerfully turn to the Lord for forgiveness. Right now we’re witnessing a collective fevered kleptomaniacal cancer devour our moral bearings due to our nation turning away from God. It’s really that simple.

    Not even Matthew Lesko can keep up with the giveaways: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NECn-uohptg.

    God have mercy on us.
