Rashida Tlaib mistakenly makes case against federal student loan forgiveness, critics say

“I worked full time, Monday through Friday, and took weekend classes to get my law degree. And still, close to $200,000 in debt. And I still owe over $70,000 and most of it was interest,” Tlaib said during oral arguments on the House floor.

I didn’t go to the for-profit entities, I went to legal aid, I worked at the nonprofit organization fighting for the right to breathe clean air, to fight for the worker that was getting their wage taken and stolen from their employer. I went and worked on immigrant rights and so much more,” she continued.

Tlaib makes $174,000 a year as a member of Congress.

Conservative Americans are not even welcome on most college campuses.

Why should they have to pay for any of this?
