Gutfield: AOC Is An “Entitled Sponge”

Greg Gutfield is fed up with AOC’s rants concerning student loan forgiveness. Last night he went on a tear, calling her an “entitled sponge.”

Let’s take AOC’s commentary first, which you can see in the first few moments of the video above. According to her, it’s only young people who pay into Medicare for seniors. OH REALLY? Medicare and Medicaid are government funded health insurance programs. Just where does she think that money comes from? It comes from everyone who pays taxes. That’s right AOC, our tax dollars fund those programs. 

Secondly, what the hell does this comment mean?? “People who take public transit pay for car infrastructure.” 

AOC is very fond of throwing out weird sentences like that, and it continually baffles me that many of her supporters just nod along in agreement as if she said something amazingly profound. 

Then again, this is the same person who, living in her $3,000+ a month apartment in DC, expressed shock and awe over the discovery of garbage disposals!

Since last year, AOC has been on the cancel all student debt bandwagon. She even made a student loan payment during a Congressional hearing. 

“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,” said the New York lawmaker. “I just made a payment that took me down to $19,000 so I feel really accomplished right now.”

Ocasio-Cortez, a Boston University graduate, was attending a House Financial Services Committee hearing on the estimated $1.5 trillion in student debt in the country. Consumer advocates, experts and public figures testified on different ways to bring the number down.

So stunning. So brave. 

Canceling student loan debt will certainly benefit AOC. It will also benefit quite a number of other folks. Whom, as the data shows, are earning more than enough money to BUDGET to pay the debt. 

That’s right. AOC CHOSE to apply to and attend Boston College. She willingly signed her name to the loan papers. She, by her signature, indicated that she and she alone would be responsible for the repayment of her debt. She knew from the start that the tuition for Boston College was approximately $70,000 annually. She chose to take out a loan anyway. 

Greg Outfield is absolutely correct here. AOC is indeed an entitled sponge. Who pays for this government backed loan forgiveness?

Yet AOC is continually on record advocating for debt relief for all.

“I don’t believe in a cutoff, especially for so many of the front-line workers who are drowning in debt and would likely be excluded from relief,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Canceling $50,000 in debt is where you really make a dent in inequality and the racial wealth gap. $10,000 isn’t.”

As for student loans, if the threshold stays at $10,000 the poor starving Congresswoman will still have approximately $5-7 thousand in loan payments to make. 

What’s next? Debt relief on your car loan payments? AOC would be all over that. What a relief it would be to no longer have that Tesla car payment! You know, those Teslas are wonderfully inexpensive with an average price tag of $48,000. 

AOC and others who are pushing for student loan relief are also refusing to address the high costs of tuition at colleges around the country. They also refuse to acknowledge that having the government spend MORE money to forgive debts that people willingly signed up for increases government debt. 

AOC, with her high-priced apartment, her French bulldog, pricy therapy sessions, and the Tesla is indeed an entitled sponge. Her salary is $174,000 a year. There is absolutely NO REASON why she can’t budget to pay off the debt she signed up for. Heck, maybe she should sell her Met Gala gown to pay off the debt!

    “We can do good things and reject the scarcity mindset that doing something good for someone else comes at the cost of something for ourselves.”

    Sandy, people do good things at the cost of something for themselves already. What you are calling for is forcing us to bear the cost for your inability to do math or plan a budget. Now hurry up with my margarita.

    Stupid Bar Wench says what?

    What was it that Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor used to say? “Aaauuauuua?” or something like that.

    Based on what I’ve read, public transit systems are all publicly subsidized, even the ones with high ridership like Chicago El trains. People who don’t use public transit are the ones who pay for public transit, in addition to paying for “car infrastructure”.

    She got a degree in Economics. The university should refund her money.

  • DC says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong (and I often am) but my auto registration fees in sunny California were paying for mass transit infrastructure. Which I occasionally used
    until some of the ridership became punks, thugs and druggie urchins that were unsafe to share a ride with.
    It’s folks like Cortez that give colleges a bad name.

    Yes. They also eat food and take medicines delivered over that “car infrastructure”, depend on ambulances and firetrucks that use that infrastructure, and will one day be carried off in a hearse over that infrastructure. Cradle to grave, they are consumers of the goods and services provided via that infrastructure.

    Here’s a shocker for you, the people who use car infrastructure pay for public transit infrastructure. It’s truly frightening that someone who has a vote on taxation regulations doesn’t understand such things.
