Soros Backs Student Loan Protests: Dan Gainor on The Blaze TV with Andrew Wilkow
“I know who they think should pay for it — that’s you and me and everybody watching this program right now,” Media Research Center VP for Business and Culture Dan Gainor said on The Blaze TV’s “Wilkow!” on June 27. Gainor was discussing the left’s push for the government to step in and help with student loan debt.
“What’s funny is that the left has set this up so they caused the problem, and then they try to solve the problem. Either way we’re the ones who get stuck,” Gainor said of those pushing this agenda. “They want infinite government involvement in every aspect of our lives, so somehow they’re never the ones to pay for it all.”
Gainor pointed out that much of the push for government intervention could be traced back to liberal billionaire George Soros. “Higher education is run by the left in this country. We’ve got the government funding these low interest loans, which have enabled high education to, you know, skyrocket in cost. So now, they’ve got this problem where student loan debt, as you said, is at a trillion dollars.
