Louie “Terror Babies” Gohmert of Texas is the stupidest man in Congress. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina may be the stupidest woman. She seems completely unaware that higher education is a bit more expensive today than it was during the Civil War:
I went through school, I worked my way through, it took me seven years, I never borrowed a dime of money. [My husband] borrowed a little bit because we both were totally on our own when we went to college, totally. I have very little tolerance for people who tell me that they graduate with $200,000 of debt or even $80,000 of debt because there’s no reason for that. We live in an opportunity society and people are forgetting that. I remind folks all the time that the Declaration of Independence says “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” You don’t have it dumped in your lap.
I’m not surprised Ms. Foxx spent seven years on campus. She’s an idiot. Who voted for her, anyway? I want names, reasons, and apologies.
We’re trying to run a serious country here, not a clown show.
