Laura Ingraham’s Argument Against Student Loan Debt Forgiveness Goes Awry

“My mom worked as a waitress until she was 73 to help pay for our college, even helped with loan repayment,” wrote Ingraham, 58, a Dartmouth College and University of Virginia School of Law alum. “Loan forgiveness just another insult to those who play by the rules,” she added.

President Joe Biden campaigned on forgiving $10,000 worth of student loan debt per person. This week, he reportedly suggested he may extend the pause on federal student loan payments. The Biden White House has also indicated an upcoming executive order to cancel some amount of individual debt.

Conservatives have railed against the move.

But Ingraham’s comments drew particular ire, though, with detractors suggesting her mother having to work far beyond retirement age was indicative that the system was “shitty,” “broken” and in need of reform.
