Far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren urged President Biden to bypass Congress Tuesday and eliminate student loan payments for millions of Americans by simply using “his pen.”
“Tick tock, tick tock Mr. President. Millions of Americans ask you now to pick up a pen and cancel student loan debt. Pick up a pen and extend the payment pause. Pick up a pen and make their lives better,” said Warren from the US Capitol.
“Over 30 million Americans will have a bill coming due in about two months. The size of these payments for many borrowers is the size of their rent, their car payments, childcare… That’s going to put a lot of people making hard choices,” she added. “Those are hard choices!”

Warren’s comments come weeks after she bizarrely asserted that many student loan recipients and other Americans are living in “childcare deserts.”
“Half of all Americans lived in child care deserts even before COVID-19, and the pandemic has only made things worse. Watch @BetseyStevenson and @FGossGraves explain why child care is basic infrastructure for women and families,” posted Warren on Twitter.

The Senator has routinely labeled government-funded childcare vital “infrastructure” that should be provided by all taxpayers.

A PLAN FOR THAT? Elizabeth Warren Unveils $1 TRILLION Plan to Fight ‘Environmental Racism’
Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest policy proposal regarding climate change this week; calling for $1.5 trillion in new spending to combat “environmental racism.”
“In 1987, the United Church of Christ’s Commission on Racial Justice commissioned one of the first studies on hazardous waste in communities of color. A few years later – 28 years ago this month – delegates to the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit adopted 17 principles of environmental justice. But in the years since, the federal government has largely failed to live up to the vision these trailblazing leaders outlined, and to its responsibilities to the communities they represent,” writes Warren.
Justice for communities on the front lines of the climate crisis must be at the core of our response to climate change. Here's my plan for how I'll center environmental justice in the fight to end the climate crisis. https://t.co/agB4llfPRg

“From predominantly black neighborhoods in Detroit to Navajo communities in the southwest to Louisiana’s Cancer Alley, industrial pollution has been concentrated in low-income communities for decades,” she adds. “The Green New Deal will involve deploying trillions of dollars to transform the way we source and use energy. In doing so, the government must prioritize resources to support vulnerable communities and remediate historic injustices.”

ADD IT TO THE LIST: Warren Says Pandemic Response Must Include ‘Free Child Care, Pre-K, Paid Leave’
Senator Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her calls to expand America’s massive entitlement system this week; saying any response to the CoVID pandemic should include universal child care, pre-k education, and paid leave.
“Make no mistake: This pandemic has set women back, with lifetime consequences. We need big, structural change to tackle this crisis head on—like universal child care, universal pre-k, and paid leave,” posted Warren on Twitter.

President Biden has already pledged to spend upwards of $4 trillion in his first days in office on a series of issues including CoVID, immigration, and the environment.
