The Republican U.S. Senate candidate from Nevada, Adam Laxalt, had nothing good to say about President Joe Biden's plan to forgive $300 billion of student loan debt and blamed his Democrat rival Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto for "enabling" Biden's agenda.
“The Biden/Masto $300 billion student debt bailout is unconstitutional, immoral, and fundamentally bad policy. It will line the pockets of the wealthiest Americans and fuel the flames of inflation, layering further pain on the back of Nevada families already struggling to get by,” Laxalt, who has been endorsed by Trump, said in a statement.
“This massive bailout is an insult to all the parents who saved up to send their kids to college, and to those students who worked hard during summer months and while in college to pay for their classes,” Laxalt continued. “Further, it’s a slap in the face to the tens of millions of Americans who couldn’t afford or decided not to attend college. That they are now being forced to pay off the student debt of the largely well-off is wrong and fundamentally un-American.”
He then said that “for the past year, Nevadans have borne the brunt of the failed Biden-Cortez Masto agenda.”
But Masto said she also disagreed with Biden's plan.
