In today’s society it has become fashionable to express outrage. No matter how loud you scream and act as if it will destroy you personally even if you resist, your message will be strongly visible to the fraudulent left in this country.
Not to be left out, Randy Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers and, for all intents and purposes, our nation’s ‘top educator’, expressed some demonstrable outrage at the left’s favorite earlier this week. Steps – Outside the Supreme Court. So what are Randy’s gears grinding this time?
The nerve of some states to challenge President Joe Biden’s executive orders has led to student loan forgiveness. Who do these people think they are to question the validity of the executive branch to override the powers of Congress?!
Was going to put together a clever ad to promote school choice but I see Randy Weingarten already did that for me 👍pic.twitter.com/V15XaXwy8q

Talk about pissed off
This week the Supreme Court heard arguments for and against the Biden administration’s student loan forgiveness program. So of course, Randy was taken aback.
She tells us, “Honestly, it really pisses me off. During the pandemic, we understood that small businesses were hurting and we helped them and did not go to the Supreme Court to challenge it. Randy spits some anger at one of the left’s favorite boogeymen, saying, “Big business is getting hurt, and we helped them, and it didn’t go to the Supreme Court to challenge it.”
Are you referring to the same big businesses that employ law grads, business grads and computer science grads who are unnecessarily requesting student loan forgiveness, the same big businesses, Randy? But I digress.

“All of a sudden, when it comes to our students, they challenge it, corporations challenge it, student loan lenders challenge it.” Oh yes, those big bad institutions and lenders, sitting in their dark back rooms, conspiring to prevent young, bright-eyed students from making good on their promises to repay the loans they took.
“That’s not right, that’s not fair, and we’re fighting when we say we’re going to cancel student loans,” Randy babbled incoherently.
Oh, Randy, if only your expensive law degree included courses on the roles of the three branches of our federal government.
I want to thank Randy Weingarten and the teachers unions for making school choice so much more reckless than anyone could imagine. pic.twitter.com/ilklRS2WUU

Some remedies are constitutional law
Student loan forgiveness has long been debated as something Congress should enact for the simple reason that they control the purse strings and make the laws of our land. Yet, with a swipe of the pen, the Biden administration is trying to get Congress to forgive $10,000 in federal student loans for those making less than $125,000 a year and families making less than $250,000 a year.
Long ago, the Left, including former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, agreed that the President of the United States does not have this power. However, Biden says he is grateful for the higher education relief opportunities for students (for heroes) Act. The Heroes Act was intended to provide temporary student loan relief to military members deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq.
Unsurprisingly, Uncle Joe has no qualms about exploiting anything intended for the military to score cheap political points – but again, I digress. The bipartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that implementing this ‘fix’ would cost American taxpayers $400 billion over three years.
Now, let’s put aside the obvious arguments that some people actually don’t think it’s fair to join the military to get our education without taking out student loans, taking out loans for equipment for our small businesses. Arguing that this bill will only add to the national debt, there is a great argument in this confusion that is not based on emotion. What Randy knows best is that Congress has passed COVID business relief packages, which is why states haven’t sued.
However, the Constitution doesn’t mean much to people like Randy.

Please Randy, let me go
In his emotional performance, Randy dropped the winner with the line, “It’s about the people, and it’s about the people’s future, and it’s about all of your futures.” You don’t care about people, Randi; You don’t care about our future and you certainly don’t care about our children’s future.
If you did, you would not have advocated and continued to support school closures during the Covid pandemic. If you do, you cannot justify lowering standards and pushing harmful ideologies in public schools across this country.
In Baltimore City Public Schools, 93% of students in grades three through eight cannot perform at grade level in math. Similarly, the Department of Education found that not one student in 55 Chicago public schools was proficient in math or reading.
You don’t give a damn about people, Randy, you only care about your agenda and it has nothing to do with your self interest in the future of this country. On MSNBC, Randy said in a slightly more measured voice, “I see it as a moral issue. I mean, the Republicans are making it…the states are making it a political issue.
I see the deplorable state of our education system, American children of all backgrounds are unable to read or do basic math in high school, and many other parents like me are graduating.
No one has done more harm to our children than Randy Weingarten.
Students and teachers deserve so much better than this. https://t.co/OilMLkhBPm

Randy said on MSNBC, “Small businesses got caught up on COVID, big corporations got it, states didn’t get sued.” He said, “Why are they suing people who really need it?”
Randy is feigning ignorance of the legal system and government system we live in or using his platform to make Americans think they don’t understand it. I’m not sure which option is worse.
However, perhaps more telling is her apparent disdain for those in the business community. His comment that small and large businesses feel they don’t deserve the relief they’ve received from Congress during COVID is devastating.
But it’s disingenuous to argue that individuals who make triple-digit jobs as lawyers, doctors, and consultants need student loan forgiveness more than small business owners forced into unwanted business restrictions by the U.S. government during the pandemic. Randy said, “When, all of a sudden, did college stop being what we wanted kids to do?”
Randy, it’s not sudden; It’s because of you. Most students are not ready for college, thanks to people like you.
Case in point, 47% of New York high school graduates need remedial math courses to function in the City University of New York’s community college system. It’s not that I don’t want my kids to go to college, but I certainly don’t want them being educated by people like you.
Be careful, Randy, your privilege is showing—privilege owned by left-wing ideological interests.
