(DCWatchdog.com) – Paul Begala, the famous ultra-liberal adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton, agrees with many conservatives and Republicans and slammed President Joe Biden over the weekend for enacting his student loan plan — which he called both bad policy and bad politics.
As Breitbart is reporting in” ‘Terrible Policy’: Ex-Clinton Adviser Paul Begala Despairs at Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness”:
“President Joe Biden’s plan to forgive some student loans was attacked Sunday by former adviser to Bill Clinton, Paul Begala, who despaired at what he called ‘terrible policy.’
Addressing the $300 billion loan bailout during CNN’s “State of the Union,” the Democrat strategist found any number of flaws in the plan.” [emphasis added]
According to Begala:
“Well, it’s bad policy as well as bad politics. For that amount of money, you could fund free pre-K for every three and four-year-olds for ten years. You can do a lot more good for poor people, communities of color, and the underprivileged by doing pre-K. You could forgive all medical debt, which unlike student debt is not freely entered into.” [emphasis added]
“What is my party doing with this? They’re disadvantaging — I think they’re not helping the people we’re here to help, which is poor people and underprivileged communities. And they’re not helping their politicians who are running.” [emphasis added]
