Below is a video of Maxine Waters, who chairs the House Banking Committee (God help us) speaking to/demanding answers from presidents of major banks.
You will hear her point out that there is a student debt crisis, with one million students defaulting on loans in each of the last two years. Then she will demand that the bank president explain what they are doing about it (as if they were the ones defaulting.
This makes Rep. Waters out to be an ignoramus; a decidedly embarrassing one at that.
Watch/listen to the video and find out why:
If you are unfamiliar with Maxine Waters’, er, capability level, you probably are floored by this; how can the chairperson of the House Financial Services Committee not know that the government took over student loans almost a decade ago:
If you are familiar with Maxine Waters, however, you probably yawned and said “well, that’s about what I’d expect”.
This, of course, is the same Maxine Waters who has spent almost 30 years “representing” three different primarily- minority districts in Los Angeles (currently California’s 43rd) and accomplishing next to nothing for any of them.
It is also the same Maxine Waters who, personally, lives in a multi-million dollar home on a beautiful, decidedly non-impoverished block, where she doesn’t have to worry about the lack of those accomplishments…
…but they keep electing her time after time anyway.
Make of that what you will.
