We honestly don’t think there’s been a more cringe-inducing presidential campaign than Eric Swalwell’s, and Kirstin Gillibrand’s running. Elizabeth Warren’s “gonna get me a beer” video kicked off a spate of horrible home videos masquerading a voter outreach, but Swalwell really topped them all with a video of him changing a diaper, as if that were proof of his feminist credentials.
Now he’s back reminding us all that he’s still paying off his student loans — which doesn’t exactly compel us to hand over the U.S. economy to him.
Too many of us, myself included, are still paying off our #studentloans.
Here's my plan to get rid of student loan debt 👇 If you work for college, college should work for you.

He’s just like you … except you worked your way to college and paid off any loans you signed.
LMAO! A ,little self-serving, no?
Let's see, thirteen years after college, six figure salary, additional income from working spouse and you still have not made even a dent in your student loan debt.
Definitely presidential material. https://t.co/FDVibR3Ozi

So basically, he wants to figure out a way not to pay back the money he borrowed & gave his word – he promised – he'd pay back. What a POS. @ericswalwell is DEFINITELY not presidential material.

Yo Captain Zero, you should have stayed single and not fathered a child until you paid your student loans.

In your case it was wasted money but that's not my problem. It's yours. Pay your bill.

Um…. didn’t you understand the contract before you agreed to it?

The system desperately needs reform, not bailouts for deadbeat jerks who took the education, agreed to the price & terms, & then expect someone else to pay their bills. What a pathetic loser you are!

How abt we teach our kids to approach college tuition responsibly! Understand how much you'll earn in your career & what would be a responsible amount of debt. Even better approach college with a plan to not accumulate any debt at all.
The "experience" has become too expensive!

Another great ratio in the making.

I’ve got other debt that I willingly signed up for. Will you magically make that go away too?

On the bright side you’ve paid down your polling numbers to 0.

No thanks . Not today, not ever.

1) signing up for a large future liability is a choice.
2) universities and secondary education institutions are making a killing
3) Find ways to reduce the burden by working it off via military or some other sort of other service to your Country or community.

As a guy who didn’t go to collage can I just get a check for what it would have cost?
— the Don (@DonNorman11) June 4, 2019
Since I’m 57 and only completed 8th grade – have never received aid or help from the government – paid them plenty though – when do I get my check in the mail to make up for all the free stuff I never got?
— Tucker Peterson (@TuckerPeterson_) June 4, 2019
I worked through college and paid my own way. Guess what? I have no student loan debt! Just how I planned it.
— Payprus (@PapyrusSauce) June 4, 2019
Did you not get a degree? You owe for the education. Some of us went to reasonable state colleges & worked. Get the government out of student loans!!!
— honeybunny97 (@MaryShuger) June 4, 2019
Hey Eric, I bought a car I couldn’t really afford. Can you help me pay it off? Oh by the way, I also own a home in CA and my mortgage is crazy expensive. Can you help with that? What do you mean those were my decisions as an adult!
Gee, thanks for the help.
— Todd Hendrix (@VolatilePuppet) June 4, 2019
How about if you can't afford it, don't go to college! I think that's a better idea.
— John Scott (@oljscott58) June 4, 2019
How about making better choices and avoiding debt.

Do you agree? If not, I will nuke you.

I started cracking up when he said “as president”😂😂😂

He's running to cancel his college loan.

You should get a refund for your loan.

you got ripped off, unless you have a degree in ripping us off

He’d still appreciate it if you’d throw a buck his way so he can get on stage at the debates without having to rush past security.
‘Talk about a SH*T SHOW!’ Just when you thought Eric Swalwell couldn’t get any MORE desperate he shares this doozy of an ad https://t.co/Ml09qBD7hP
