‘Squad’ Member Pressley: Student Debt is ‘Violence’

There’s a new form of violence in Democrats’ vocabulary.

Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts took to social media to push President Biden to universally cancel student debt for U.S. college students and graduates. Reporting on her own canvassing efforts, Pressley said allowing student debt to continue was a form of violence.

“Let’s make it plain: student debt is policy violence,” Pressley wrote. “We’ll keep fighting to relieve families across the country, to make sure our policies & budgets reflect their lived experiences & that we build this grassroots movement to #CancelStudentDebt together.”

Pressley, a member of the far-left “Squad,” explained that her team was involved in what she called “deep canvasing” – speaking with local constituents about student debt cancellation and their financial security.

“By ‘deep canvassing,’ we engaged voters across the district in longer, one-on-one conversations about student debt cancellation, discussed how canceling student debt would impact their lives, and introduced new perspectives by sharing stories & lived experiences.”

The ‘Squad’ member described student debt as a “racial, gender, and economic crisis” before specifically calling on the president to proceed on the proposed debt cancellation.

“And so many others whose lived experiences continue to affirm what we know to be true: That the student debt crisis is multiracial & multigenerational,” she wrote. 

“That it is a racial, gender & economic justice issue. That @POTUS can & must #CancelStudentDebt.”

  1. No , sorry you are violence Pressley. You are always instigating ugly behavior.

  2. Why?
    Students entered in to a contract knowing they would be charged for attending their school of choice. It’s real simple, if you cannot afford it do not buy it. If you cannot afford a Rolls Royce, buy a Ford (used at that).
    Enough with the free stuff – all should be held accountable and tax paying Americans should NOT be required to pay for someone’s excessive spending.

  3. I didn’t make this debt. Neither did anyone else I know. The ones that I know who had a loan managed to pay it off themselves by, unbelieve but true, getting a job. These squad socialist want all things free. What they have to understand that nothing is free. If somebody gets something for no cost, somebody else pays the bill. Get off your lazy butts and start paying it back. It’s your loan not mine or anyone else.

  4. Perhaps we should consider paying for these idiots relocation to a socialist country. This way everything will be free and they won’t have to live under such an evil government that clearly triggers her and all other snowflakes. It’s beyond me how these people win any sort of election. How can anyone in their right mind vote for someone so obviously out of touch with reality? The fact is nothing in this life is free and even the fools that say such ridiculous things know that yet continue to make promises that simply can not be delivered upon. My own children are spewing this venomous bile to the point that they wish for the likes of Bernie Sanders as their desired leadership. I absolutely regret every single dime I contributed to my children’s collegiate indoctrination. They have become teachers attorneys and restaurant managers and yet they wish for more socialist nonsense. Apparently we have failed to teach our children the folly of communism and socialism. We have failed to teach them about how evil people can be when given total power and control over others. I repeat over and over about why so many are escaping socialist and communist countries to attain the freedom we have all to no avail. Unfortunately I’ve seen all of this before and already know where it leads. In the end each generation must make their own mistakes. Perhaps there should be a class that teaches experience of their elders has some value as well.
    God Bless America

    • I agree wholeheartedly. I put myself through School with loans. I paid off every last dime.

    • You aren’t the first parent that has told me that they don’t recognize their own children. The scheme to indoctrinate the children was and IS the 100 year plan of the Communist China Government. They are so evil that we, the trusting stupid Americans never thought to investigate what the education system was teaching to our children. The plan is working very well. Look at how our media, printed and televised, turn everything against the conservatives and adoringly submit the garbage that is being sold to us as truth. I talk to people who HAVE NO IDEA EVEN TODAY,of what is being done to our country.
      The simple minded public either doesn’t want to know or are too lazy to find out. Meanwhile the thirty years of child indoctrination is now resulting in those children being in all phases of business, law, media, education and we’re screwed. They are in charge of so much, that it will take God and Trump to start to turn the world back to sanity. Here’s hoping that enough of us are still sane enough to help them.

    • Love your comments!

    • That is for sure. many parents do not recognize their own children. They have been indoctrinated to believe that Socialism is good. So why are so many people waiting at our borders to get in, from socialist countries. Because like Hitler, Biden is promising them the world. Then when he has them in his grip, he changes the rules.
      It is unfortunate that the parents did not question their children about the schools and their curriculum, since thy wre paying for the education of their kids.

  5. How about going after the universities for charging so much. Maybe if we started there, the college loan debt wouldn’t be out of control like it has gotten.

  6. Pressley, you really are a nitwit. I cannot believe we have idiots like you representing people in this country.
    Education is something you work for! Students knew the risks before deciding to go. I am a native american and I NEVER asked for a handout. I worked my butt off for my double MBA which including working two jobs and grants to pay for it! My parents didn’t have the money so it was up to me to make it happen.

    You socialists are unbelievable! If you think I am going to pay for my education and pay for sone lazy mediocre student that wants their education given to them, ESPECIALLY being taught leftist corrupt ideas like CRT and other garbage, you miss Pressley better pull that bald head out of your a–!!!!!

    If these students want education they can work for it because taxpayers will NOT go along with the stupidity of the squad and your fake admibstration!

    • Like most of my white elitist friends, we worked for a living and paid as we went through school and/or earned scholarships through good grades or athletics. This squad member obviously squandered her education by spending her study time whining with some protest group that made excuses for their lack of commitment to excellence. She and her squad only use racist remarks to try and cover their ignorance.

  7. A M E N ! I too have tried explaining to o avail! I just hope this stupidity will be overtaken sooner rather than later! How the Squad managed to get into our Governmemt is unbelievable! Since Joey is so fond of throwing our money around, the idea of relocating them woud work for me.

  8. I paid for 5 degrees for my wife and kids, I don’t have a college degree, are you doing to reimburse us? Nitwit.

  9. Disgusted Voter and Tax Payer

    Gee – I worked my way through college with some help from my parents. Why do these kids think they’re better than me???? Times were tough then also!!!! Why should I pay for them to go party at ivy league schools when I worked AND went to a state college??????
    When one of them has an answer – let me know and I’ll reconsider my stance. Otherwise – kid – you made your bed!!!!!!!

  10. How much in student debt does Ms Presley owe??? That, I am sure is what is driving her ridiculous rhetoric.

  11. How one earth did she come to such a stupid conclusion? Student loan debt was enacted by the student. Just like any loan. Loan means you borrow you pay back. They knew what they were doing when they borrowed so do like the rest of us and pay it back no matter how long it takes -you owe it to be paid. Borrowing means it is for a time but must be returned. Gees! If they want to forgive student loans then they should forgive home loans as well and car loans etc. Why do students get such a special privilege? It is not right.

  12. This woman is nuts! I do not want to pay for their schooling! No one made them go to college. They knew when they went it would cost. They could have worked harder and gotten scholarships to help pay for it. Oh no, don’t try to make me on the hook for that crap!

  13. You take out a loan you pay it back-it’s that simple! That is what borrowing means. I borrowed to buy my house a long time ago and I have paid it off and take pride in doing so as I was grateful for the loan.

  14. P.S, I also paid off student loan as expected with no complaining.

  15. My sentiments exactly! But this is the stupidity that I cannot understand. These people like Bernie Sanders, AOC and the rest of the squad are very sick people and have no common sense at all!
    It is a known fact that if some one does not pay for something, it is not valuable enough to cherish it.

  16. LETS BE CLEAR #1 NO ONE IS ENTITLED TO A COLLEGE EDUCATION, #2 IF YOU TAKE OUT A LOAN ON A CAR YOUR REQUIRED TO PAY IT BACK, SAME APPLIES TO COLLEGE LOANS, #3 IF PARENTS OR “STUDENTS” WISH TO GO TO COLLEGE AND THEY CAN’T GET A PELL GRANT AND CHOSE TO TAKE A LOAN THEY SHOULD MAKE SURE THERE IS A DEMAND FOR THEIR MAJOR, IF IT’S SOME LIBERAL ARTS BS, WELL SUCKS TO BEE THEM. PAY IT BACK YOU TOOK IT OUT. #4 IF YOU WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE FREE CONSIDERER JOINING THE MILITARY AND USING YOUR VA BENEFITS. #5 GO TO A COMMUNITY COLLEGE USUALLY BETTER EDUCATION WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE LIBERAL PROFESSORS CLASSES.
    THAT SAID THE “SQUAD” ARE WINNING THE “WHOSE THE STUPIDEST” CONTEST THAT IT APPEARS 85% OF DEMOCratS ARE COMPETING IN. AS THIS PERSON PROVES WITH HER VIOLENCE? REASONING? SHE MAY BE IN 2ND PLACE BEHIND AOC THAT DON’T THINK IT FAIR SHE SHOULD PAY BACK HER $17,000 STUDENT LOAN ON PIZZA MAKING.
