Senator Marco Rubio has been one of the politicians who has strongly criticized Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness, even calling it “unfair” and “illegal”, but when he was a college student he had $100,000 in student loans, which he ensures have paid thanks to the sale of a book.
The Republican said he “understands” the problems with student loans in the United States because he also had student debt before being elected by Congresshowever, he is concerned about the plan of the president of the United States.
In an interview with Fox News, the senator from Florida said that student loans should be reformed and that he more than anyone understands what millions of students live through, which is why he believes such loans should be reformed.
“Owed more than $100,000 in student loans”, narrowed down “The day I was elected to the Senate I still owed over $100,000 in student loans that I was able to pay off because I wrote a book and with that money I was able to pay it off, otherwise I would still be paying it off.”
According to the Tampa Bay Times, his book “An American Son: A Memori” was published in 2013 and in 2012 he received an advance of $800,000 from the publisher Penguin Group, but he never indicated that his student debt had been finished.
The aforementioned source also indicated that since Rubio took office as a United States senator, his salary has been $174,000 and their income has increased thanks to book contracts and royalties.
“I have bipartisan ideas that I have been pushing for years to do this. This plan does not reform the system,” he said. “There are people who are applying for loans right now who will owe them in the future that they earned will not be covered by this often for a degree that would not lead to a job.”
And he closed his interview by assuring that the forgiveness of student loans was “unfair” and “illegal” and that the president of the United States did not have the authority to “do that”.
