Tucker Carlson is one of the few voices on television who makes sense.
He isn’t afraid to take on the insanity of the modern left.
And he just sent Elizabeth Warren into a fit of rage with one announcement.
In Tucker Carlson’s recent segment, he discussed the topic of student loans.
And surprisingly, the start of his segment was something that far-left politicians like Elizabeth Warren would agree with.
He blasts increasingly expensive tuition costs for college students.
Carlson points out that 45 million Americans labor while holding student loan debt, and that the average debt is $37,000.
He also points out that student loan debt isn’t like normal debt, and cannot be erased through bankruptcy, meaning that many students will pay off their loan debt, and the interest for the rest of their lives.
These would be talking points that Warren would mention before calling for full-on student loan forgiveness.
But Carlson doesn’t have the same solution, or the same beliefs on why student loan debt is such a problem.
He points out that, “the only people benefiting from this current system are on the far left: the smirking college presidents with multi-million dollar salaries. The authoritarian university administrators and the suddenly ubiquitous diversity and inclusion officers. The tenured professors of non-binary feminist poetry and other perverse and pointless fake academic disciplines.”
Those people continue to allow America’s young people to be forced into a life of debt, and while they do it, they take in massive paychecks, along with benefiting from behemoth endowments.
Endowments are what Carlson believes colleges should begin digging into in order to pay off student loan debts from students, as they are the ones perpetrating “this scam.”
“Harvard’s endowment is $40 billion. Yale’s endowment is $30 billion. Let’s start there,” Carlson explained. “What’s clear is we need to move the crushing financial burden of student debt off the shoulders of middle-class families and 22-year-olds and back to the people who have gotten rich from it.”
“That’s an idea that every sensible person can support. In fact, there’s a big political payoff for any politician wise enough to adopt it. The candidate who promises to make colleges ease the student loan burden, without question, will be the next president of the United States.”
Carlson’s plan is sensible, targets the right people, and incentivizes them to fix the problem going forward.
The ballooning cost of college is allowed to continue because students are guaranteed these loans, allowing colleges to charge however much they want.
If colleges began to be forced to pay back those loans using their endowments, they would be given an incentive to lower tuition.
Under Elizabeth Warren’s plan, colleges could continue to charge whatever they want, and just wait on Warren to send all of their students a government bailout.
Carlson continues to announce innovative plans like this, and hinting that a candidate would be very popular if they pushed it.
This is making many believe that he will jump into the presidential race in 2024.
