Believe it or not, there are a lot of people giving wounded warrior Joey Jones grief about his tweet, saying they thought people signed up for the military out of love for their country and patriotism, not for a free ride through college. Recruiters certainly aren’t shy about it, though, and there are plenty who sign up for military service for that reason. As we’ve said in plenty of posts today, the majority of those covered under President Joe Biden’s debt cancellation plan are upper-middle-class whites.
I cannot believe I gave two legs for my tuition. What a dope I am. Ooh-rah!

Ooh-Rah and Semper Fi, brother!

I’ve been thinking of all the soldiers that signed up and sacrificed for their education. This is nuts.

Thank you for your service. My son chose a zero frills federal service academy instead of a leafy private college. He’s now working on a ship to pay back his obligation. This is a bitter pill to swallow.

My G.I Bill helped pay for my Electrical Schooling. Now being an Electrician, I have to pay for other people's student loans.🤬

My son who is active duty, currently working on his Bachelor all at the same time, juggling his time between that, along the gym, girlfriend & social life will be paying for those that makes 3x more than him & all the time in the world for leisure. Definitely an Oorah

I hear you, brother, it is a slap in the face to all who enlisted to get the GI Bill and actually earned and sacrificed for it.

Thank you for your service. You are what’s right with our country!

My wife and I worked two jobs to pay for our children's college tuition, didn't take out loans…just busted our asses to make sure our kids didn't have to carry the debt. If they had taken out student loans, I would fully expect them to pay it back. Thank you for your service.

I can’t believe I worked my way through college paid for by myself and then paid for my daughter’s college! What a dope!

While some continue to get a leg up on those who do things the right way, the ones who afford them that privilege are often two down.

Thank you so much for your sacrifice. Debt of gratitude.

You gave two legs for all of us.

It’s astounding how mean some of the replies are. How much did taxpayers pay for your medical bills? Taxpayers paid to send you to war. Why should others suffer because you’re so bitter? (Narrator: Jones is not bitter — far from it.)
Here’s how Joe Biden is justifying his outrageously unlawful student debt cancellation, and if this isn’t impeachable, we don’t know what is https://t.co/m37eKAXaEi
