Twitter Users Say Biden Student Loan Plan was Meant to 'Buy Votes'

There is no doubt whatsoever that our elected officials will use any and all sorts of schemes and scams to secure our votes, with the most desperate of these ploys occurring closest to election day.  This has been the way of the American political system for as long as any of us have been alive, and it appears to be getting less and less subtle as time goes on.

In 2022, voters are now suggesting that President Joe Biden’s promise of a student loan forgiveness plan, (that’s been getting gutted in the judicial system of late), was little more than a political ploy to get young voters out to the polls.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman ruled that Biden’s executive action was unconstitutional because Congress didn’t approve the sweeping plan. In fact, the judge claimed it was one of the largest executive branch overreaches in the “history of the United States.”

As Fox Business reported, Pittman’s opinion on the ruling stated, “No one can plausibly deny that it is either one of the largest delegations of legislative power to the executive branch, or one of the largest exercises of legislative power without congressional authority in the history of the United States.”

This has Twitter erupting.

Liberals on the platform expressed outrage over the ruling, while conservatives ridiculed Biden’s entire handout strategy as being a cynical ploy to garner Democratic votes for the midterms.

The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis wrote, “Doesn’t matter to Biden. Its only purpose was to buy votes for last Tuesday.”

American Greatness senior Fellow Ned Ryun tweeted, “Fascinating. Motivated under 30s to come out and vote and in the end, Biden got what he wanted and they got played for fools.”

Liberal radio host Kyle Kulinski expressed frustrated over the ruling, stating, “92% of student loan debt is owned by the federal government but apparently the federal government doesn’t have the right to reduce it? Oh please. Conservative judges are judicial activists who make sh– up to f— over poor people. Thankfully this will be appealed.”

Conservative actor Rob Schneider seemed relieved over the ruling, commenting, “A federal judge tonight vacated the Presidents executive order to forgive student loans on a mass basis as unlawful. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who feel that transferring 1/2 trillion dollars from working people to college graduates is crazy.”

Former “Mad TV” actress and Twitter liberal Mo Collins remarked, “Of course this happened.”

One has to imagine that Biden will have something bigger in store for 2024, including perhaps the conclusion of his plan to federally reschedule marijuana – a move that, if dangled in front of enough liberal voters, could swing a presidential race his way.
