Oops: Maxine Waters grills banks
on student loan crisis even though
feds took over in 2010

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 4/10/2019 3:49:38 PM

House Financial Services Committee chairwoman Maxine Waters was brought up short Wednesday after she targeted banking chiefs over the student loan crisis, even though the federal government took over student lending in 2010. At a hearing featuring a panel of seven bank CEOs, Ms. Waters ticked off figures on student loan debt and defaults, then asked, “What are you guys doing to help us with this student loan debt? Who would like to answer first? Mr. Monahan, big bank.” Bank of America chairman and CEO Brian Monahan replied, “We stopped making student loans in 2007 or so.” Ms. Waters replied,

Comments:
Did the Democrat Party place this utter moron, selected strictly because she is black, as chair of an important committee just to make black people look foolish? The Dems should be ashamed (though they have no capacity for it) and black people should be deeply offended at this affront.

Of course the federal government took over something financial and proceeded to ruin it. Now they are trying to blame banks who have nothing to do with it. I will bet that loans made by banks prior to 2010 properly qualified students and most of them were capable of paying back the loans. Once the feds took over they passed out money to anybody and I´ll bet the default rate soared.

Yet another of government "help" that ends up hurting instead.

Waters is a moron. Thankfully she is willing to prove that on a regular basis.

Am I the only one who remembers that the Feds took over all student lending and used the interest income from these student loans to offset Obamacare costs so the OMB could bring that magic 10 year obamacare cost number under a trillion?

In order to hide the true cost of Obamacare the feds bloated the student loan bubble to the point of bursting. And burst it will. Its a hard and fast rule in economics, that which cannot continue, won´t.

Maxine Waters is dumb as a sack of hair but we all knew that already.

The enlightening bit of the article is at the end:
"The Obama administration eliminated the federal guaranteed loan program in 2010, putting the federal government in charge of student lending with the idea of saving taxpayer dollars by “cutting out the middleman,” as President Barack Obama put it.

Afterward, student loan debt exploded from $154.9 billion in 2009 to $1.1 trillion at the end of 2017, according to Investor’s Business Daily. Current student debt is estimated at more than $1.5 trillion."

And there ,in a nut shell, is exactly what bigger and bigger government does every single time. $150 billion to $1.5 trillion in less than 10 years.

FTA: "Afterward, student loan debt exploded from $154.9 billion in 2009 to $1.1 trillion at the end of 2017..." What followed next was the massive student loan DEFAULT, especially amongst the BLACKs. They thought so long as Doorknob Hussein was president, they didn´t have to pay back their student loan.

Btw, Maxine Waters still rewinds her DVD when she´s done.

A virus appears to be the cause behind a rash of polio-like illnesses that struck Minnesota last fall, causing paralyzing symptoms in several children, including one girl who lost all motor function and remains hospitalized. Researchers from Minnesota and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that they found Enterovirus-D68 in the spinal fluid of one of six children who suffered acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM.(Snip) “[AFM] is incredibly scary for patients and families,” said Dr. Heidi Moline, the lead author of the report and the University of Minnesota’s chief pediatrics resident. “The fact

Chicago—A Chicago alderman believes “soft on crime” policies by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx helped embolden hundreds of teens who took part in a massive “wilding” in downtown Chicago Wednesday night.(Snip) Police estimate about 500 teens, spurred on by social media, flooded into the downtown area, many intending to create havoc. Tourists scrambled as a huge brawl broke out in Millennium Park and police say the teens snatched purses and cellphones, and flooded into stores to smash and grab merchandise. Hundreds of police responded, arresting 31 people on charges ranging from mob action to battery—most later released

The cause of the massive blaze that engulfed the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is under investigation, authorities said Monday as firefighters continued to work to save the world-famous landmark. But some experts said the extensive renovations going on at the historic building could have contributed to the fire. There is a history of churches, synagogues and temples going up in flames while under repair, said Glenn Corbett, an associate professor of fire science at John Jay College in New York. Notre Dame, which was built in the 12th and 13th centuries, has a wooden roof.

Police are investigating the brutal beating of a transgender woman in Texas after an apparent outbreak of “mob violence” was caught on camera. A video posted on Facebook reportedly showed the woman being attacked and insulted with homophobic slurs near an apartment complex in southern Dallas. Dallas Police Department said in a statement that 29-year-old Edward Thomas had been arrested for his suspected role in an “aggravated assault”. The victim reported the attack on Friday while receiving hospital treatment, telling officers it had occurred soon after she was involved in a minor traffic accident next to the apartment complex.

The event was billed as ‘an intimate conversation with Michelle Obama’. And as the former US first lady strolled onstage in a loose silk trouser suit, her fans may well have thought they’d been invited to a pyjama party. Mrs Obama – more often seen in glamorous dresses at black-tie events – slipped into something more comfortable to promote her memoir Becoming in Paris.

MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell criticized conservative-leaning Christians for not being "kinder" and said that South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is "demonstrating how to actually be a Christian," after the 2020 presidential hopeful shrugged off protesters in Iowa last night. "I think that we are going to see a number of protests. Anti-abortion protesters are going to show up at events throughout this primary," she said on MSNBC Live. "I have no doubt. So I think it´s a test for Democrats, including Mayor Pete, about how they can handle that type of direct adversity."

The frequent critic of Trump is a regular on the network morning show, hosting a segment called “Flake’s Take.” The discussion began with the announcement that Republican Massachusetts Gov.

(Video) The Dallas Morning News reported that Maura Nakahata, a senior majoring in chemistry with a minor in government, asked O’Rourke why if he made seven times what her sister made, she gave more money to charity than O’Rourke. As Jenna Johnson of The Washington Post reported, O’Rourke responded loftily: I’ve served in office since
