Friday Politics Roundup | SCOTUS overturns Roe; SCOTUS OKs guns on city streets; J6; Biden cancels more student load debt; Wheel of Time
Raging Chicken's Friday Politics Roundup for June 24, 2022. We're back at our regular time and there's a lot going on. We're here to dig into the good, the bad, and the ugly in state and national politics.
It’s a dark day in America. The Supreme Court just overturned Roe v. Wade.
The Supreme Court rules that we must all return to the Wild West, arming ourselves in public in case there is a call for a showdown, effectively turning all our Main Streets into OK corrals. Apparently, Westerns are part of the “American Tradition” in the Constitution. And, as you might imagine, shares of Smith & Wesson rose more than 9% on Wall Street.
Update on January 6th hearings.
According to a new report by the Education Data Initiative, in Pennsylvania, 661,000 student loan borrowers between the age of 25 and 34 owe an average of more than $35,000 each - more than $23 billions collectively. 35 - 49-year-olds owe an average of $46,377 each, or $20.74 billion. Those between 50 - 61 owe an average of $46,929; and, borrowers over 62 owe an average of $45,539 each. In total, American student loan borrowers owe more than $1.7 trillion in student loan debt.
The Biden Administration’s Department of Education has agreed to cancel $6 billion in student loan debt for more than 200,000 borrowers who were defrauded by their mostly for-profit colleges or universities. That is on top of the more than $25 billion in student loan debt the administration already canceled for more than 1.7 million borrowers. Supposedly, the Biden administration will decide by August 31 if it will make good on Biden’s campaign promist to cancel at least $10,000 in student loan debt across the board.
Kim Bedillion of the Pennridge GOP goes all in on her anti-LGBTQ crusade.
