Voter Challenges Warren's Student Loan Forgiveness Plan: "Those Of Us Who Did The Right Thing Get Screwed?"

|

A man confronted Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday at a campaign event in Grimes, Iowa, saying that her plan to forgive student debt would "screw" people who paid for college tuition by themselves or successfully paid off their debt.

"I just wanted to ask one question. My daughter is getting out of school. I've saved all my money. She doesn't have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?" he said.

"Of course not, Warren said.

"So you're going to pay for people who didn't save any money and those of us who did the right thing get screwed," the man said.

"No, you're not going to get screwed," Warren assured him.

"Of course we do. My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations. I saved my money. He made more than I did. But I worked a double shift, worked extra -- my daughter has worked since she was 10. So, you're laughing."

"No, I'm not," Warren said.

"Yeah, that's exactly what you're doing," he said. "We did the right thing, and we get screwed."
