The Biden administration on Wednesday announced it would extend the federal student loan moratorium through the end of August — and Jeanine Pirro isn’t happy about that.
The pause has been in place since the start of the pandemic and is expected to expire on May 1. While the administration acknowledges the strength of the economy compared to a year ago, “we are still is recovering from the pandemic and the unprecedented economic disruption it caused. “, Biden said in statement.
However, Pirro wants students to just “get a job, pay your lovely loan, and shut up.”
“We have 11.3 million job openings. Wages are rising — certainly not enough to keep up with inflation — but more than enough for these people to get jobs and pay off their student loans,” Pirro said on Fox News’ roundtable. Five.
“So the delay itself that Biden has put in place – I don’t know if it’s the fourth or sixth – has so far cost the government $100 billion because no one has made any payments. any.”
This actually marks the fourth time the Biden administration has delayed the repayment date. As for the cost to the government, Pirro appears to be referencing a finding from the Responsible Federal Budget Committee, a group that opposes the loan pause and estimates that it will cost an additional $50 billion. future annual dollars.
“This is the bottom line,” continued Pirro of the lenders. “You have a contract. You have a contract with the person who lent you that money. If you can’t pay it, that’s your problem. Get a job like everyone else.”
The Fox News speaker hit some of the same notes as the GOP lawmakers when hearing the news Wednesday.
“Want to do something to help people? I have an idea,” said Pirro, now speaking to the Biden administration. “Why don’t you help people like veterans who are committing suicide, people who are homeless… And then we have elderly people who are living on fixed income when inflation is higher than it is now. 40 years.”
“So these lazy kids want their loans canceled? Unreasonable. Pay off your lovely loan, get a job and shut up,” declares Pirro, who has yet to pay nearly $600,000 due to a failed bid for the New York Senate in 2006 – an amount that the commissioner Her still-active campaign said she has no intention of giving back.
Pirro’s committee also stopped filing legally required paperwork with the Federal Election Commission in 2012, The Daily Beast reported, despite being prompted to do so multiple times.
