SCOTUS Gets One Right, AARP Wrong Again

The United States Supreme Court ruled that if you borrow money from the federal government for student loans and don't pay it back the government can attach your Socialist Security. Wow.
That's actually logical and the opinion was unamimous according to this MSNBC article.

the case was important because outstanding student loans total about
$33 billion, which includes about $7 billion in delinquent debt. Of the
delinquent loans, about half are over 10 years old, government lawyers have

Of course the AARP opposed the ruling. Maybe someone should explain the concept of "loan" to them as opposed to the concept of "gift." Perhaps if they get feeling a little frisky they could go into the concept of "theft."

Just a thought.

Of course, neither student loans from the government nor Socialist Security is constitutional, so we're still dealing with a SCOTUS that doesn't get it.

Yeah, right, Ol' BC ... real encouraging.

Well, RWR, as long as the government steals our money through an unconstitutional income tax, I think student loans are one of the better uses. I do however, believe that it isn't too much to go to great lengths to collect.
