Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed this week she currently owes $19,000 in student debt; urging Congress forgive education loans for all Americans despite earning an annual salary of $174,00 per year.

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed Republicans as she revealed she owes nearly $20,000 in student loans at a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Tuesday,” reports Fox News.

“I literally made a student loan payment while I was sitting here at this chair, and I looked at my balance, and it was $20,237.16,” she said. “I just made a payment that took me down to $19,000 so I feel really accomplished right now.”

Earlier this year, President Trump signed an executive order forgiving student debt for thousands of permanently disabled veterans.

“The order, which Trump signed following a speech at the American Veterans National Convention in Louisville, Ky., also clears those eligible veterans from having to pay any federal income tax on the loans. Trump added that he is pressuring individual states to follow suit,” reports Fox News.

“The debt of these disabled veterans will be completely erased,” Trump said. “That’s hundreds of millions of dollars of student loans debt for our disabled veterans that will be completely erased.”

“It was my honor to sign a Presidential Memorandum facilitating the cancellation of student loan debt for 25K of our most severely disabled Veterans. With today’s order, we express the everlasting love & loyalty of a truly grateful Nation. God bless our Vets, & God Bless America!” Trump tweeted.

“Trump’s announcement comes days after the administration hired a longtime student loan industry executive to be the federal government’s top watchdog for the student loan market. Robert Cameron will serve as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new student loan ombudsman, the bureau said Friday,” adds Fox.

President Trump continued to make good on his campaign pledge to donate his presidential salary to charity this week; unveiling his plans to give his first quarter 2018 paycheck to the Office of Veterans Affairs.

The President announced his decision Thursday, saying the VA will receive his quarterly salary to help the agency promote the well-being and health of America’s heroic service members and their families.

The money will reportedly be used to help the VA’s “Caregiver Programs.”

Acting Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie officially accepted the presidential donation, saying “President Trump understands the critical role of caregivers in meeting the essential needs of veterans.”

The President has donated his previous paychecks to other American institutions, including the preservation of America’s Civil War battlefield at Antietam in Maryland.
