Americans Demand Marjorie Taylor Greene Return the $183K She Borrowed From Taxpayers, ‘Pay Back Your PPP Loan!’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) either has a short memory or likes talking out of both sides of her mouth. I’m not sure which. She’s currently complaining about Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, calling it “completely unfair.”

Even though records show that her own company had a whopping $183,504 in Paycheck Protection Program loans in 2020, Insider reports.

The Biden administration announced plans Wednesday to forgive $10,000 in student loan debt for the majority of borrowers, making good on one of his campaign promises. Relief will also be extended to millions currently mired in debt. U.S. residents who earn less than $125,000 a year are eligible for loan forgiveness.

The White House Twitter account slammed Marjorie Taylor Greene, reminding her that the federal government forgave her $183,000 business loan

Quite obviously this will help millions of Americans, but that’s not in Marjorie’s purview. Instead, during an interview on Newsmax TV, she complained the plan was unfair to taxpayers who haven’t taken out a student loan. She also said she was opposed to the student loan program from the get-go, saying “There should not be a system in place that allows them and encourages them to pile up massive debt in these big colleges and universities.”

But the tracking site ProPublica, which uses data from the Small Business Administration dug up a little dirt on Greene and found she was one of several Republican members of Congress whose private loans were forgiven. According to the data, the total amount forgiven was $183,504, meaning there was full forgiveness of the original $182,300 loan, plus the accrued interest.

On her website, Greene claims she and her husband, Perry Greene bought her family’s construction company, Taylor Commercial, Inc., prior to her election.

Greene also slammed the Biden administration for simply using this as a political trick to bring in more Democratic votes during the midterm elections.

While she’s busy complaining about this, perhaps she might want to remember that $92,000 car she bought using campaign donations. Maybe she’s forgotten about this. Or maybe she’s just a hypocrite.

Here’s a clip of the interview below.

Twitter also had some thoughts, and they were quite angry:
