Frank News: Student Debt Canceling, Mar-a-Largo Raid, and She-Hulk
The smartest guy you know (me) explains the news
It’s time once again for me to help you understand all the confusing news out there. Let’s dive in!
Student Debt Canceling
There are so many government handouts, so why not some for the wealthiest, whiniest Americans? Biden has announced he’s going to cancel $10,000 in debt for the most insufferable people in society paid for by supermarket cashiers and waitresses in the form of higher inflation.
Now, the way he’s doing it isn’t technically “constitutional” as it doesn’t involve, you know, actually passing a bill through Congress, but if it isn’t worth violating the Constitution to bribe your supporters with taxpayer money, then what is it worth violating the Constitution for?
And I love how it’s perfectly targeted to make absolutely everyone angry. We have handouts to people making over $200k a year sure to enrage hardworking, blue-collar Americans, but it’s “only” $10,000, which will make the whiniest, most over-privileged Americans cry that it isn’t big enough.
By the way, does anyone wonder why college keeps getting more and more expensive? I mean, the government keeps giving irresponsible teenagers six digits in spending power to fight back against it, but it keeps going up. I guess it’s one of those things no one will ever solve, and we’ll just have to keep dumping money on it.
By the way, colleges have announced that debt cancellation is a great idea and also they are raising tuition by 50%.
We’re only a few months away from the midterm elections. That’s when people go, “Oh. Wow. What a great president we have. Let’s elect more people to support him and keep doing what he’s doing.” Or they say, “Oh no. What a mistake we made electing that president. Let’s elect as many Representatives and Senators from the other party as possible to stop him.” More often than not, the reaction is the latter.
Anyway, I’ll explain the current political situation as best as I understand it. First, President Biden — and this may be news for some of you — is not popular. Most political analysts trace this to his job being President and that being a job he’s not particularly good at. So it’s expected that the other party — the Republicans — will do well in the midterms.
Everyone following still?
Most political analysts are expecting the Republicans to take the House, but now they think they won’t win the Senate because the Republicans nominated several candidates no one wants to vote for — usually considered a mistake in a Senate race (terrible candidates are more for House races in safe districts). Also, some analysts think the Democrats may do better than expected because now all these people who were busy killing babies will have nothing better to do than vote.
There; now you understand the whole political situation. Wow! Exciting! Who knows what will happen in November? Elections are fun!
