Hey Joe Don't Dick Around with 45 Million Student Debt Voters

Didn’t every politician’s mother teach their sons that if you enter politics not to discount the voices of so many voters with one silly policy based more on self indulgence and misplaced loyalties than purpose? Well, if she did not, I am here to tell you about that lesson. Hey Joe don’t dick around with 45 million student debt voters you think you can control because they won’t vote for the GOP. They are smarter than you, and they are angrier than you can imagine. Just let go of the banks’ choke hold on you, otherwise your four years in office will only be a slow action and boring movie of a lame duck presidency collecting money from bankers, but unwilling to serve those whom you swore to serve.

Tell your bankers that you could not sit idle while they changed the very fabric of our country just because of their Frankenstein capitalism. Tell them you had a responsibility for the welfare of the people, not just theirs. How is that for a novel idea, Mr. President?

MY FRIENDS, I HAD TOO MANY DREAMS

What is it with these politicians? They think they own the people just because big business own them? It does not work that way in a democracy, folks. Mr. President, respectfully, you need to sign an Executive Order to forgive up to $50,000 of student debt today. Then you need to make a call to your Wall Street bankers telling them you had several dreams.

The first dream saw you walk the isle with millions of past students now able to marry because they are debt-free. They are, Mr. President, your sons and daughters after all. In this instance, their happiness is your responsibility.

Then tell your friend bankers that you had another dream. This one had you sell millions of homes to millions of young Americans now able to buy one because they are no longer burdened by the slimy greedy bankers sucking their blood and their future in one single motion.

After the first two dreams, you also need to tell them the worst one you had. In it, you saw millions of Millennials die of old age before their grandchildren were born. You know, those grandchildren they could not see until their children can marry beyond the age of 40, which by then put the Millennials in their eighties.

America is happy for you you could see all your grandchildren, Mr. President; but the same is not going to be true for tens of millions of student debt holders marrying late in life.

Please tell your bankers that you could not sit idle while they changed the very fabric of our country just because of their Frankenstein capitalism. Tell them you had a responsibility for the welfare of the people, not just theirs. How is that for a novel idea, Mr. President?

In fact, not forgiving student debt is doubling down on the black communities that voted you into office. You harmed their parents with the Crime Bill, and now you are harming their children by siding with the ugliest of predators mortgaging their futures. You cannot escape these optics, Mr. President.

LOOK HOW GREAT I AM AS I FORGIVE $10,000

I know what you’re thinking Mr. President. You are thinking that you could have it both ways. Like you could have your cake and eat it too by fooling the 45 million student debt holders into believing you did them a big favor for a $10,000 student debt forgiveness. You are thinking that they would forgive you for your lousy forgiveness. That’s lots of hogwash some banker just fed you over a two-minute phone conversation, Mr. President.

The amount of $10,000 will hardly make a dent for those students in debt with insanely large amounts of money. Like your children who don’t have to worry about finding well cushioned jobs that would make their debt seem irrelevant. The fact remains that not every student debt holder’s father is the President, Mr. President.

So, please Mr. President. Have some empathy that goes beyond your loyalty to banks and greedy money lenders. Why? Because, just as mothers across this beautiful country tell their sons all the time, “Hey Joe don’t dick around with 45 million student debt voters”, I am hoping that somewhere in the back of your memory your own gave you such wise advice.

Pick up your pen, Mr. President, and sign that Executive Order. Or go down in history as a U.S. President who favored US corporations killing the very fabric of our nation on your own watch.

Never forget that mistakes, like the Crime Bill of 1994, follow you around forever. That one caused immense incarcerations of the black families in this country. But unlike the kind, benevolent, and forgiving African-Americans, Millennials will never forgive you for your loyalty to their predators.

In fact, not forgiving student debt is doubling down on the black communities that voted you into office. You harmed their parents with the Crime Bill, and now you are harming their children by siding with the ugliest of predators mortgaging their futures. You cannot escape these optics, Mr. President.

Either way, you keep harming the black people while pretending to be their friend. How long will this last before they stop voting all together.
