Fad Democratic Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has an exorbitant level of student loan debt.
Reporting from Fox Business reveals that the neoliberal Democrat has a whopping $131,296 in outstanding loans. Buttigieg is a Harvard and Oxford graduate, and frequently points to his professional qualifications as a rationale for his presidential campaign.
Crushing student loan debt is a tragically widespread phenomenon across all demographics of young Americans, but Buttigieg’s amount of debt is far higher than what the average loaner incurs. If elected, he would probably be the first President with outstanding student loan debt. His husband, Chasten, also has a similar six-figure student loan debt. For context, the average American student loan borrower takes out between $20,000 and $25,000 in loans.
It’s unclear how exactly Buttigieg intends to pay back the substantial debt. Presidents receive around $450,000 in annual salary, but absent an unlikely victory, it appears difficult to repay such a large student loan debt with a municipal public servant’s salary.
Buttigieg’s appeal to the elitist establishment of the Democratic Party thus far represents a crucial strategy of his campaign. He’s marketed what some call a ‘smart guy’ persona as part of his candidacy, making dubious claims of speaking multiple languages. It appears that at least when it comes to his personal finances, the Indiana mayor isn’t quite as much of a boy-wonder as he makes himself seem.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
