This tweet is just stupid but there’s a reason we’re featuring it. As we reported earlier this week, MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan took a look at President Joe Biden’s approval numbers with young people — which have dropped among 18-30-year-olds a full 25 points since he took office. Hasan’s take isn’t unique, certainly, and he’s saying that Biden had better cancel those student loans before the midterms if he wants to hold on to the House. It’s bribery, essentially; we cancel your student debt, and you vote for us in 2022. The pressure is coming from a lot of places to do something fast.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal tweeted Saturday that canceling student loan payments isn’t just economic justice, it’s also racial justice and gender justice.

There’s no thread explaining why any of this is true. It’s just something Democrats say.

It’s economic justice to make blue-collar workers pay off the debt of college-educated people? How is that justice?
