FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Biden Administration’s Threats to Democracy

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A recent national survey by Scott Rasmussen conducted from August 30-31, 2022 shows that a majority of respondents believe that Biden’s student loan forgiveness proposal is unfair to, people who paid off their loans, people who worked their way through college, and American taxpayers. Furthermore, only 22 percent of Americans trust the Biden Administration’s estimate that the proposal will only cost $240 billion. 

On the separate topic of “threats to democracy,” nearly two thirds of Americans said that the top threat to democracy in the United States is letting government bureaucrats set rules without approval of Congress or voters. Peter Vicenzi, FreedomWorks Director of Communications, commented: 

“Projection is what Democrats do best. That’s exactly what we saw last night during yet another unhinged rant from President Biden about threats to American democracy. Unfortunately for Biden, a large majority of Americans see unilateral action by the executive branch as the greatest threat to democracy. From the Keystone pipeline to the ministry of truth, to student loan forgiveness, Biden’s own actions, without consent from Congress or voters, pose the real threat to democracy.” 

“For a President who ran on the promise that no one making under $400,000 a year would pay more in taxes, Biden has lied once again. Americans know it, and they know it is unfair to put the burden of student debt on people who have already paid off their loans, folks who worked through college, and the American taxpayer as a whole. However, this makes sense for a President who is more concerned with ‘equity’ as opposed to ‘equality’.” 

“Biden is using equity as a means to score political points with his base. He doesn’t care about true equality, only about churning out disaffected, liberal college grads with blatant hand-outs. Biden doesn’t care about you, the taxpayer. He just wants you to foot the bill.”
