(NewsReady.com) – Many Democratic candidates are promising to implement a handful of programs free to the public if they were to be elected. Andrew Yang promises $1,000 a month for every adult, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) has a plethora of social programs, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) attempts to match Sanders’ promises.
However, here’s a big question that’s been on the minds of many voters: How would any of these candidates fulfill their campaign promises? This is especially pertinent given that, currently, Republicans control the Senate.
Warren has answered this question, at least in part: she would bypass Congress.
In a recently released plan to cancel student loan debt, Warren stated that she’d go directly to her secretary of education. They would “compromise and modify” federal student loans to cancel up to $50,000 in debt for 95% of the total borrowers. Warren cites the Higher Education Act of 1965 as an appropriate authority to enact her plan to cancel much of America’s student loan debt.
Would it work? Only time — and Warren winning the presidency — will tell.
