“I have very little tolerance for people who tell me that they graduate with $200,000 of debt or even $80,000 of debt because there’s no reason for that,” Foxx continued. “We live in an opportunity society and people are forgetting that. I remind folks all the time that the Declaration of Independence says ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ You don’t sit on your butt and have it dumped in your lap.”
No reason for that? Uh huh.
Mrs, Foxx reveals her true nature as an entitled elitist politicians with no comprehension, understanding, or awareness of how the average American lives. She lives in the D.C. echo chamber of self-delusion and ignorance of the world around her. She claims we are a nation of opportunity. We are not nor have been for quite some time. People like her have made it increasingly difficult to near impossible to even find an opportunity let alone exploit said opportunity through numerous rules and regulations that have done nothing but hinder opportunity. She pontificates on how she worked her way through school, didn’t take a dime, and the usual blather I have dubbed the “Elitist Echo” about how people today are just lazy and expect everything handed to them. What makes this pretty reprehensible is the fact that this elitist fool sits on the Subcommittee for Higher Education.
Where was her outrage over the years about increasing tuition costs? Why was her committee doing nothing to make college more affordable? Why does she have no understanding that college costs are somewhere like 1700% more than when she went to college? Why did she and her elitist colleagues allow the economy to collapse and then bail out those responsible for the collapse without a single concern for the average American? Will Mrs. Foxx take responsibility for her part in destroying good paying jobs for college grads who are now unemployed or underemployed because Congress allowed their positions to be outsourced, downsizes, or even eliminated for no other reason than Congressional and Corporate greed? Ultimately it is the availability of jobs that determine whether one can pay their debts. Our economy is in the tank, therefor no jobs. Perhaps the Congresswoman should spend her time working to better the economy than whining about those scrabbling to get ahead despite her and her colleagues efforts to undermine the working people of America.
I know many college grads who are unemployed or underemployed. They didn’t ask for it. They’ve worked hard and were screwed over despite their efforts. I would suggest Mrs. Foxx and her fellow political elite in Washington on both sides of the isle stop denigrating people (their constituents) over their college debt and instead look to their own guilt in wracking up trillions of dollars in debt in their wasteful spending of taxpayer money. When she and her fellow elitist scum have eliminated the national debt they have incurred while in office, then she can question others about their personal debts.
Hypocrisy thy name is Rep. Virginia Foxx.
