This week, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez encouraged voters to continue to “bully” the Biden White House into canceling student loan debt, hiwhc they claim is a promise unfulfilled.
During a Q&A on Instagram, the New York Democrat responded to a user who said, “Cancel student debt so I can buy a damn house.”
“FYI, it does not take an act of Congress to cancel student debt,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “Biden could do it tomorrow if he wanted to.”
“Keep bullying the White House. It has been successful in delaying payments but now we gotta finish the job,” she added.
Indeed, in December, Biden reversed his decision to resume student loan payments beginning February 1 after facing pressure from members of the far-left.
“We know that millions of student loan borrowers are still coping with the impacts of the pandemic and need some more time before resuming payments,” read the White House’s statement at the time.
