Cruz Takes Warren to the Woodshed for “Dictator” Plan to Bypass Congress

With Bernie Sanders supporters threatening to turn the 2020 primaries into a war on her dishonest tactics, Sen. Elizabeth Warren once again found herself in a position Tuesday to prove that she was just as willing to give away the farm if it meant attracting young, socialist voters to her side. With the race slowly but surely slipping out of her grasp, Warren revealed a new plan to cancel student loan debt for up to 42 million Americans…and to hell with any pathetic “Congress” that might stand in her way.

“When I was elected to the Senate, I used every opportunity and tool available to ease the burden of student debt,” Warren tweeted. “I fought to lower interest rates, refinance loans, and hold loan servicers and debt collectors accountable for breaking the law and hurting borrowers. Understand this: The Department of Education has broad authority to end the student loan debt crisis. When I’m president, I plan to use that authority.

“Canceling student loan debt is a racial justice issue,” she continued. “We have a student loan crisis—and we can’t afford to wait for Congress to act. I’ve already proposed a student loan debt cancellation plan, and on day one of my presidency, I’ll use existing laws to start providing that debt cancellation immediately.”

The plan drew consternation and scorn from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who questioned Warren on how, exactly, she planned to enact her plan without the aid of Congress.

“Which clause of the Constitution gives a President the authority to give away a trillion $ w/o Congress?” Cruz asked. “And if you like this policy, how would you feel if/when a GOP president does it for something you don’t like? Here’s a better idea: follow the Const & don’t be a dictator.”

According to some analysts, though, Warren’s plan would not be without some precedent. Already, the Department of Education enjoys the freedom to cancel student loan debt when the debtors in question meet certain criteria. They may become disabled, they may be able to prove that their school cheated them in some way, what have you. Warren’s argument is that if the DOE has the authority to cancel debt in certain instances, it can do so under any circumstances.

That’s not a legally outrageous argument, but for Warren to pretend that it won’t run into congressional pushback is intellectually dishonest, at best. What’s more, it wouldn’t even necessarily take a Republican-controlled Congress. Many, even on the left, are fearful that a student loan debt cancellation plan would overwhelmingly benefit the rich and not, as Warren puts it, move “racial justice” further along. And even if Warren did somehow manage to get her cancellation scheme past Congress and the courts, it would almost certainly be a one-time deal that would effectively put an end to federally-subsidized student loans…forever.

Warren is proposing a plan that will not only devastate American taxpayers but also risk making college into (again) an option that only the well-off can afford. Such are the pitfalls of “sounds good” left-wing policies; all too often, they hurt the very people they’re meant to help.

  1. Isnt it interesting that warren and the democrats have been claiming trumps thinks he is a dictator yet here they are not even elected and acting like dictators! Kind of like blaming trump for Ukrainian corruption while trying to cover up bv their Ukrainian corruption.

    People who vote for Democrats are stupid people. We need to reduce the carbon footprint and reducing housing cost by aborting all current democrats. It is just a late term abortion like the 70th trimester or so. Still just abortion. Hey I didnt make the rules the democrats did.

  2. All these lefties are wannabe dictators! I just got off the phone with someone who is from Venezuela. He thinks this is a scary time as they know better than anyone what that country and their people have gone through over the last two decades. Guess who they voted for? NOT Hillary!

  3. You guys are being too mean about Dizzy Lizzy. I mean, you are talking tomorrows problems. She’s talking about solving yesterdays problems. Heck, we only have about 10 years before we are all gonna drown on boiling seal anyway. Ask AOC. In 2018 she said we had 12 years. Like someone mentioned, she was a College Professor and was in on the whole rigged scheme back then too. She bares some responsibility for the results of her plans. I bet she voted with Obama’s idea for Nationalizing Student loans. My oldest kids had competitive loans and they paid them off pretty soon after graduation. My youngest was stuck with Obama’s solution and her rate was double what the other two had. Want to fix a problem? stop doing what doesn’t work and go back to what worked better. Just because Obama did it doesn’t make it smarter. Just saying.

  4. Warren has done nothing for people with student loans, nothing. This disgusting liar will say anything to get young people to vote for her. I have kids drowning in student loan debit but they know better than to support a proven liar when it comes to fixing this problem.

  5. She LIES like a “RUG” and is NOT to be TRUSTED. We the American People should NOT have to pay for some STUDENT who has RACKED UP Debt. If they MADE the DEBT, then They should have to PAY for the debt. What she is proposing is SOCIALISM and WE The People won’t STAND for it. Don’t vote for this TREASONISTIC TRAITOR Reprobate if you VALUE your Country! Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  6. Here’s the dilemna…In my opinion, if these “dictators” ever get in power, and I see no way of ever stopping them from gaining this power(and I am so dreadful it will be accomplished in my life-time)they will effectively over-turn the Constitution of the United States. They will no longer attempt a common sense approach, after listening to reason for or against, but simply for political reasons, like Obama did, enact these dangerous solutions to an already dangerous situation, by Executive Order. Obama enacted DACA, job-killing regulations, and mindless foreign policy resolutions(for example: the Iranian Nuclear Deal, where not only are the Iranians eventually going to be able to obtain a Nuclear Weapon,but we are going to give them the Uranium to accomplish this). But the far-reaching consequences of this “free give-away” is that it undermines the real reason for it. These kids do not “deserve” a free education. These kids do not “deserve” a respite from their debts. These kids are “still learning” and must continue their education, only this time in the “School of hard knocks” instead of at frat parties, and sorority, and fraternity, football {insert alternate sporting event}games. C’mon, let’s face it Elizabeth Warren was a lying, conniving, money grubbing politician(and a woman of “color” if one is to believe her 1/1064 DNA)who “finagled, cheated, and manipulated the system” to get where she is. And she has no shame for what she did. How can we expect her to have or feel remorse for “using” yours and my hard earned tax-payers money to pay for these “worthless” degrees that these kids are receiving. No mistake about it, these “worthless” degrees will have to be paid for. And if we let these politicians “ROB and STEAL” from us to pay for them, then we deserve the nightmare that is coming.

  7. That witch should not even be a senator much less running for president. She is a loon, a liar, and a liberal so far to the left she is not a credible person to lead anything!

  8. People don’t let your panties get into a knot. There’s no way this lying commie moron will ever make it to the White House she probably won’t even be the crazy democrats candidate.Not one of the democrat candidates can beat President Trump.President Trump will win by a landslide!! We the people need to vote republican and vote out the do nothing commie socialist democrats and take back the house in 2020.Than our great president will be able to do even more great things
