Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said that if student loan debt is forgiven by the Biden administration, he’s ready to “go to war” to make sure it doesn’t happen.
On “The Five,” the panel was discussing the usefulness of college degrees, with co-host Sean Duffy noting that more than half of all graduates don’t work in their field of study and a quarter of those with degrees earn less than $30,000 a year. That led him to wonder aloud, “Is college worth it?”
Gutfeld immediately weighed in:
“It doesn’t matter if it’s worth it if it’s required in life. A college degree is not meant to give you any knowledge. It’s a signal that gets you into the club. It’s a six-figure cover charge to get you into the bar of life.
“And the hangover is you pay it off later.”
Instead of college, Gutfeld opined, people should go to trade school or join the military:
“There’s ways to gain experience in life, so you don’t end up six, seven figures in debt. And by the way, nobody’s paying for it. You’re paying for it. That’s something I would go to war for. Cancel debt? No, no, no, no, no. And everybody who paid their debts would be on my side.”
That led Jeanine Pirro to chime in:
“That’s right. I’m with you already.”
Well, if we’re not going to help those who need student debt relief, then let’s be sure to cut out all corporate welfare, raise the tax rate on corporations such as Fox to 50% or more, and refuse to bail out any bank or business that’s on the verge of imploding.
And while we’re at it, we can also get people with cushy television contracts such as Gutfeld to pay their fair share and set the top tax rate to 70%. If he and his wealthy friends don’t like that, they can surrender their citizenship and move elsewhere. Russia would be idea for them.
