Rep. Omar: student loan debt is’not your fault’ and makes students ‘victims’

Sen. Bernie Sanders, along with Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, introduced the “The College for All Act” today which will forgive $1.6 trillion outstanding student loan debt.

Sanders proposes that Wall Street pick up the tab, saying they need to help out the middle class.

Rep. Omar said students were victims, it wasn’t their fault they were in so much debt and that “student debt is not the result of bad choices or behavior.”

Not to be left out, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a press conference to lend her support to Sanders and Omar, saying, “What a beautiful day to liberate ourselves from student debt. What a beautiful day to liberate our future generations from the scourge of for-profit education, & by that we also mean for-profit student loan debt.”

The plan would also make two and four year colleges tuition free.
