The White House is tweeting out PPP loans taken by Republicans...bwahahaha [View all]

Tweet text:
The White House
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene had $183,504 in PPP loans forgiven.

Greene: For our government just to say ok your debt is completely forgiven.. it’s completely unfair

Congressman Vern Buchanan had over $2.3 million in PPP loans forgiven.

Rep. Vern Buchanan
As a blue-collar kid who worked his way through college, I know firsthand the sacrifices people make to receive an education.

Biden’s reckless, unilateral student loan giveaway is unfair to the 87 percent of Americans without student loan debt and those who played by the rules.

The White House
Congressman Markwayne Mullin had over $1.4 million in PPP loans forgiven.

Markwayne Mullin
We do not need farmers and ranchers, small business owners, and teachers in Oklahoma paying the debts of Ivy League lawyers and doctors across the U.S.

This places undue burden on those already suffering due to the weight of Biden’s failed economic policy.
