Pennsylvania Iron Workers Speak Out Against Biden’s New Student Loan Plan

The well-represented ironworkers of south-central Pennsylvania have issued a statement that expresses their lack of patience for Old Uncle Joe’s recent $500 billion student loan forgiveness program, taking time to express that the plan seems to have an overall feeling of overt unfairness.

Various workers at the Donsco, Inc. iron foundry voiced their concerns to Fox News about Biden’s recent plan to cancel $10,000 of borrowers’ student loans if they make less than $125,000 annually while Pell Grant recipients in the same vein will get up to $20,000.

“It’s not going to affect the people that are here, the people that are actually out doing all the work,” explained Jim Davis, a foundry supervisor. “He said he’s going to help the people in the bigger cities because that’s what [he] wants.”

Biden has chosen to pay visits out to Pennsylvania more than any other state in the country with the single exception of Delaware since he took office. At the end of last month, a poll carried out by Emerson College discovered that Biden had a whopping 39% approval rating in that area, with 57% of people responding showing disapproval of Biden’s choices and actions throughout his presidency.

Francisco Hernández, a cancer survivor who was forced to go back out of retirement to work due to the rapidly increasing levels of inflation that has taken place under Biden, spoke out, “A lot of those families are rich. They have the money to pay it off, so they get a break and they get to sit on their couch and their kids are stuck with a degree they can’t even use.”

“The sad part is the rich aren’t going to pay for this, we are,” he stated. “Everything is a gift, but that goes on the back of our debt and the taxpayers are the ones who have to cover it.”

Another iron worker, Tony Bell, also shared the sentiment, “I think it’s a bad idea. Donsco is always hiring people, these college kids can always come here on their time off and work and pay their debt back.”

“If they signed the contract they should pay for it,” stated Kevin Waseileski. “’Why should I pay for somebody else’s college? … I don’t think a plumber should be paying for a doctor’s free medical school.”

In a statement to Fox & Friends, Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) explained, “I worked in a factory right out of high school. … Americans work hard, and it’s really sad that the president thinks that he knows better than the American people how to spend their money. … He’s really out of touch with what is going on in America.”
