Greg Gutfeld is a big “NO” on taxpayers footing the bill for student loan debt.
But he’s not just a “NO,” he’s ready to go to “war” over it.
Hey, who can blame the guy, right? It’s not another individual’s responsibility to pick up the tab for another person’s child to go to college. It’s hard enough to just make ends meet as it is. It’s either the parent or the child’s responsibility to find a way to pay for higher education if that is the route a person decides to go.
Personal responsibility is such a simple concept, yet the left seems totally allergic to it.
Greg Gutfeld is so opposed to student loan forgiveness that he’s willing to “go to war” to stop it.
During Tuesday night’s edition of The Five, Gutfeld weighed in with his thoughts on the real worth of a college degree. And Greg, rightfully so, isn’t all that gung-ho about higher education to begin with.
Gutfeld described the college experience as “a six-figure cover charge to get you into the bar of life.” He then quipped, “And the hangover is you pay it off later.”
“It’s a virtue signal, and it always has been a virtue signal, but now the virtue signal of a bachelor’s degree is not enough,” he went on to explain. “So then it’s like ‘well this person has a master’s,’ ‘well this person has a Ph.D.,’ you’re now in an arms race of degrees, and the hangover is you pay it off later.”
Greg explained that there are alternative tracks in life that may lead to more fulfillment and less debt.
“There’s ways to gain experience in life, so you don’t end up six, seven figures in debt,” he noted. “And by the way, nobody’s paying for it. You’re paying for it. That’s something I would go to war for. Cancel debt? No, no, no, no, no. And everybody who paid their debts would be on my side.”

The thing that really gets me is this: We’re told that we need to help these adults get out of student loan debt because as youngsters, they were “tricked” into signing up for these huge loans — they were duped and didn’t know better, and we can’t blame them, because they were young and naïve, etc.
But on the flip side, we’re told that 7-year-olds can make life-altering decisions about their sexuality and gender?
That doesn’t add up, does it?
Then again, when you put the progressive worldview under the microscope, there’s not a lot that will stand up to scrutiny, so there’s that.
On one hand, children can make massive, life-changing decisions before they have all their body hair, but years later, they can no longer make any BIG decisions because they’re confused, and need to be bailed out?
Which one is it, Libs?
