BAKED, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/VcG3jluPqw— ?? ?????????? (@SouthPoleRJ) November 28, 2020
After four years of MIGA, I now have a dimmer view of rightwing populism. I now think of it as a circus with various grifter sideshow acts like Infowars and Baked Alaska surrounding Donald Trump’s personality cult. Trump is delivering MIGA, corporate tax cuts and the usual conservative policy agenda. He isn’t doing much of what he promised in 2016 and certainly not much for me.
“A majority of voters support President-elect Joe Biden cancelling up to $50,000 of student debt per person, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.
Sixty percent of registered voters in the Nov. 17-19 survey said they support the idea.
By contrast, 40 percent of voters said they do not support the measure.
The survey follows a push from progressive Democratic lawmakers and activists to cancel at least some of the estimated 1.6 trillion student loan debt that roughly 44 million Americans owe.
Eighty-four percent of Democratic voters support Biden cancelling up to $50,000 in student debt per person along with 57 percent of independent voters.
By contrast, 66 percent of Republican respondents oppose the measure.
Seventy-three percent of 18 to 34 year olds and 68 percent of 35 to 49 year olds are in favor of cancelling the student debt while 50 percent of 50 to 64 year olds and 54 percent of 65 year olds or older oppose it. …”
Give me something.
I don’t want more MIGA. I don’t want more Hunter Biden dick pics. I don’t more useless Law & Order tweets. I don’t want the Platinum Plan. I want something that is going to start to materially and meaningfully improve the lives of White people who make under $100,000 a year.
I didn’t vote Joe Biden.
I don’t expect Joe Biden to abolish student loan debt. It would be a nice place to start though particularly for Gen X and Millennial voters. I’m for getting banks and debt collectors off their backs. If nothing else is going to get done anyway, then that should get done.
Naturally, mainstream conservatives are against it.
“The debate about whether or not we should “cancel” or “forgive” student loan debt has been raging for years, but a pretty crucial point keeps getting ignored — the fact that doing this is impossible.
When I say “impossible,” I don’t merely mean that the proposals are too expensive or that they wouldn’t achieve the economic boost that they promise. Although I do believe those things are true as well.
A recent Fox Business article by Megan Henney does a good job of explaining those details. …”
Steve Forbes is a conservative multimillionaire.
He is opposed to doing anything for people outside of his class. After the last four years, I am increasingly opposed to doing anything for people like Steve. The GOP got the votes in 2016 but failed to deliver the goods on foreign policy, trade, immigration, political correctness and other areas. It can either give us what we want on the social issues or start paying for it on economic issues.
