Sen. Elizabeth Warren has dismissed an irritated dad who saved up and paid for his daughter’s education. The Tuesday exchange was caught on camera as the Democratic presidential hopeful touted her student loan forgiveness plan.
The father asked if he would be reimbursed to which Warren replied, “Of course not.”
The man explained that an acquaintance makes more than he does, didn’t save anything, and would benefit from Warren’s plan adding, “So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money, then those of us who did the right thing get screwed?”
Warren was asked about the exchange Friday on “CBS This Morning,” dismissing the man saying, “We don’t build an America by saddling our kids with debt.”
