White House Targets Marjorie Taylor Greene

The White House has called out Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) over the recent criticisms of President Biden’s student loan forgiveness program. Specifically, the White House noted that Greene herself had Paycheck Protection Program loans forgiven.

The Biden administration took to Twitter to post a video of Greece calling the announcement of debt forgiveness unfair. They also wrote that she had $183,504 in PPP loans forgiven. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was a loan program designed to help small businesses stay in business amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Data also shows how much interest Greene’s company, Taylor Commercial, Inc., has had forgiven under this program.

The Biden administration has now announced that up to $10,000 in federal student loan debt forgiveness is available for Americans with a salary of less than $125,000 per year. Pell Grant recipients are also allowed up to $20,000 if they earn less than $125,000 per year.

A further pause in the repayment of student federal loans was announced. This COVID-19 policy was set to expire on Aug.21 but has now been extended one final time until Dec. 31.

Greene during a Newsmax interview said that it was unfair for the government to be forgiving debt and that Taxpayers should not have to be responsible for paying off the student loans accrued by some college students who got massive debt for choosing to attend an Ivy League university.

Others have also asked whether such a program would be fair to those who have worked towards repaying their loans which he addressed on Wednesday.

Democrats across the board have been supporting the debt relief move, but Republicans have been critical of the economics of this move.

  1. Call me stupid but I didn’t know the PPP program had anything to do with the Student Loan program. Is the WH saying Greene broke a law?
    By the way, the PPP program was passed by Congress. When did they pass the Student Loan program?

  2. Another SPIT in the faces of all the RESPONSIBLE borrowers that PAID their student loans.
    You make the loan “man-up” and pay your DEBT. Otherwise don’t take out “loans’,.
    Better yet get a JOB and work your own damn way through college instead of relying on government “handouts” that ALWAYS come with “strings” attached.
    Face it by accepting these BRIBES, to get you to vote DEMOCOMMUNIST .you are being TRAINED to be good little obedient communists that will “teach you” to rely on “big brother” for everything. Just like they WANT.

  3. Is Greene the only politician in Washington who had PPP Loans forgiven, I don’t think so. If there is ANY way to get free money, anyone who has more than an ounce of brains knows that the Left will find a way to get their fair share. Lets see a list of EVERY Politician who took advantage of this Government program before we start throwing stones.

    • Under pressure from Congress and outside groups, the Trump administration this week disclosed the names of some loan recipients in the $659 billion Paycheck Protection Program, launched in April to help smaller businesses keep Americans employed during the pandemic. Connections to lawmakers, and the organizations that work to influence them, were quickly apparent.

      Among businesses that received money was a California hotel partially owned by the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as a shipping business started by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao’s family. Chao is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

      Car dealerships owned by at least three Republican House members — Reps. Roger Williams of Texas, Vern Buchanan of Florida and Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania — received money. So, too, did fast-food franchises owned by Rep. Kevin Hern, R-Okla., a law firm owned by the husband of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and the former law firm of Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., which employs his wife.

      Money also flowed to a farming and equipment business owned by the family of Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo., and a regional casino company led by the husband of Rep. Susie Lee, D-Nev.

  4. The American People don’t want loan forgiveness. We can’t pay for our own kids, why should we pay for other people who aren’t paying their loans.
    The dems want votes that’s all. They’ll do anything to get power even at the expense of good hard working people.
    The dems dislike these people, they just want their money for their disastrous agenda.
    FJB !!!

  5. Loan foregivnessm. ? No such thing when I went to college. If they get a loan then they need to get a job and pay it back. Simple as that. To help people during a pandemic is a different story. The pandemic should of never been !!!!
    As for helping people with loan forgiveness what about helping people with medical cost ? Lots of people and seniors go without treatment cause they can’t afford it. Another thing : look what they are giving all the illegal people. I dont begrudge anyone help but these people need to come in legal like all our ancestors.

  6. The student loan vs PPP loans is comparing apples to oranges of course Joe Biden does not know the difference between an apple and orange unless he either checks it out on one of his cue cards or asks Jill, his service dog

  7. I’d say Biden is comparing apples to oranges. The PPP “loans” were, in effect, a reimbursement of existing labor expenses because THE GOVERNMENT CAUSED the debt with economic shutdowns.

    That is quite different from any student deciding FOR THEMSELVES to take on debt in order to attend college.

    Do we not see the difference ? Who made the debt decision should determine who is responsible for re-payment.

  8. The difference is the PPP was passed by Congress. Joe McSniffy Schitz-His-Pants is passing his Buy Democrats Votes act by Executive Fiat.

  9. Most unfair college loan program ever. Colleges are holding huge amounts of cash in their coffers for teachers’ retirement plans and raising tuition every year with little concern for what they are doing for “students”. Offering majors in useless degrees and charging huge fees that cripple these grads with unemployable skills! People who didn’t go to or finish college are being targeted for payment that they don’t owe for these snowflakes. Colleges need to lower their tuition fees to reflect the value they offer instead of a guaranteed retirement financial safe haven for their quack instructors.

  10. I don’t have a problem with our government forgiving student loans I started working when I was five years old picking cotton chopping weeds worked all my life and held three jobs till I turned 66 and retired five years ago and I never made as much money as all these politicians do they get in there for a period A four years and they become millionaires and yet most of our tax money goes overseas to other countries it’s time our country does something for our children and your children and all the people of the United States
