What happened this week, when the father of a college student – a father who paid every penny of his daughter’s tuition – asks Elizabeth Warren if her “everybody gets free college tuition” plan means he’s getting his money back?
Here’s your answer…
“My daughter’s getting out of school, I saved all my money, so she doesn’t have any student debt,” the man says. “Am I going to get my money back?”
“Of course not,” the Massachusetts senator responds.
“So, we end up paying for people who didn’t save any money, then those who did the right thing get screwed,” the father says.
He goes on to describe the actions of his “buddy,” who he says makes more money than him but didn’t use his money responsibly. Meanwhile he worked a “double shift” and carefully put money away in order to make sure his daughter wasn’t burdened with debt.
“So, you’re laughing,” the man says in response to Warren’s reaction. “Yes, that’s exactly what you’re doing,” he says after the senator appears to protest. “We did the right thing — and we get screwed,” the frustrated father says before walking away.
…and here’s the video.
This campaign is not just going bye-bye, it is going down in flames.
