There are some things Vice Presidents aren’t supposed to do.
But apparently, Kamala flunked out of Vice Presidents school.
And Kamala Harris dropped jaws with this insulting demand of Joe Biden she just went public with.
Kamala Harris not only pulled rank on her boss, but picked the dumbest possible reason to do it.
Joe Biden is on the verge of announcing a new plan to buy votes in the midterm election by throwing gasoline on the dumpster fire that’s our current economy.
His immoral — and likely illegal — attempt to bail out student loan holders is poised to cause inflation to blow up even worse.
Even if Biden successfully “forgives” $10,000 in student debt per person, Americans will ultimately end up losing more money through higher prices on everything from food and gasoline to rent.
He’s also burning every voter who already paid off their student loans or never went to college in the first place.
Now it wouldn’t be so shocking if Kamala Harris broke rank with Joe Biden over any of these legit concerns over how his plan is going to backfire big time.
But she didn’t do that.
Instead, she’s siding with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and The Squad in demanding her boss implement a plan that’s exponentially more dangerous.
In a stunning show of disrespect Harris refused to appear in a video with Biden pitching his unethical vote buyout plan because she wants him to forgive even more in student debt for each person.
Politico reported on the VP’s insubordination:
Harris’ office then decided against it, according to two White House officials familiar with the matter.
Ultimately, President JOE BIDEN released his own video and Harris issued a statement about the policy. It was a shift from December —the last time the administration extended the pause — when Harris and Biden both filmed social media videos about the extension that came down then and worked with advocates of student debt cancellation.
Privately, Harris has advocated for additional loan forgiveness. One White House source said her office seemed initially eager to participate in the administration’s public dialogue around student loans. But conscious of progressives pushing Biden to unilaterally cancel tens of thousands of dollars in student debt and that Biden is resisting such lobbying, the vice president has been increasingly wary of becoming part of the public face of the administration’s response.
Reports on the situation don’t specify a number, but Chuck Schumer and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are demanding Democrats cancel up to $50,000 in student debt for each borrower.
We can assume Harris has something comparably disastrous in mind.
Ironically, while Harris is terrified of becoming the “public face” of the administration when that’s literally already her job description, she’s managed to fail so hard her poll numbers are somehow even lower than Joe Biden’s.
Considering that her recent fallout with her boss is a clear indication she’s gunning for a 2024 run, we have to hope those dismal poll numbers hold.
Joe Biden has already pushed our national economy to the brink of total collapse.
It certainly couldn’t withstand a president hellbent on pushing through economic policies five times worse than what we’re already facing.
