Lies You Believe About Being Poor: Poor People Get the Majority of Government Handouts

President Joe Biden announced a plan to forgive up to $20,000 in student loans for the poorest borrowers, extend a mortorium on payments throught the end of 2022 and potentially make it easier for the poorest borrowers to make payments on those old loans.

And the right wing world is going crazy at the thought. They are once again perpetuating the lie that liberals give poor people handouts and that’s what keeps them from being motivated to change their circumstances.
