A voter in Iowa decided to confront Elizabeth Warren about her student loan debt forgiveness plan and asked “Will I get my money back” on his daughter’s education that he had to work double shifts to afford.
Here’s the key exchange:
Voter: “I just wanted to ask one question. My daughter is getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?”
Warren: “Of course not.”
Voter: “So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money and those of us who did the right thing get screwed.”
Warren: “No, you’re not going to get screwed.”
Voter: “Of course we do. My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations. I saved my money. He made more than I did. But I worked a double shift, worked extra — my daughter has worked since she was 10. So, you’re laughing.”
Warren: “No, I’m not.”
Voter: “Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing. We did the right thing, and we get screwed.”
