AOC hits Biden on $50K student debt, says Schumer has her back

New York progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took on President Biden Wednesday after he flatly rejected her proposal to forgive $50,000 in student debt per person.

Ocasio-Cortez, a far-left Democrat who represents parts of the Bronx and Queens, noted that even Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer backs her idea.

Biden said at a Tuesday night CNN town hall, “I will not make that happen” because he’s concerned about steering federal funds to Harvard and Yale graduates rather than to “early education for young children that come from disadvantaged circumstances.”

The 31-year-old self-labeled socialist, known by the initials AOC, took to Twitter to rebuke Biden for the stance, noting that she had enlisted the support of Schumer (D-NY), against whom she is reportedly mulling a 2022 primary challenge.

“1. Who cares what school someone went to? Entire generations of working class kids were encouraged to go into more debt under the guise of elitism. This is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response
