If you’re in the 1% of top earners in the United States, socialist Democrats sure do have it out for you. Elizabeth Warren is no exception and today, she sent out a tweet suggesting that billionaire NFL owner Dan Snyder should have his wealth redistributed to pay for people who are saddled with student loan debt.
This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a "superyacht" with its own iMax theater. I'm pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt. https://t.co/Gk4ifAkxdT

Besides the obvious issue that people should be able to do what they want with their money, Warren is failing to grasp the concept that people with student loan debt are in that position because of choices they made.
When you borrow money to pay for anything, whether it be college or a new car, there’s the expectation that you will have to pay it back someday. That’s just how the real world works. A billionaire NFL owner shouldn’t be forced by the government to repay a loan for someone else simply because he’s a billionaire.
Now, if Snyder was feeling super charitable and decided to do that on his own – good on him. But what Warren is proposing is pure socialism – stealing from the rich to give to the poor.
It’s his money, not yours. And it certainly doesn’t belong to a bunch of people who knowingly went into debt for college and don’t want to pay back the loans they took out.
Get a grip. https://t.co/QoPBw0Kn1M

Why is it any of your business what he spends his money on?

LOL at these responses.
Of course you’re going after the Redskins owner. https://t.co/eILikKvwl5

He's the owner of the Redskins. Sit this one out #pocahontas.
You know about 1/1024th as much about money management as him.

Warren herself is worth $18 million, so why isn’t she doing her part?
Why isn’t Elizabeth Warren voluntarily cutting a check to the US Treasury every year covering a few percent of her wealth? https://t.co/5ASLh3sETW
