Student loan forgiveness, Rep. Liz Cheney’s ouster and a rapid-fire round of local news

Both Sides of the Aisle – Natalie Gochnour is joined on The Right by John Dougall, Utah State Auditor, and on The Left by Shireen Ghorbani, former Salt Lake County Council member. They discuss President Biden’s reforms to student forgiveness, who will receive federal student loan forgiveness and takeaways from Rep. Liz Cheney’s primary loss. They also discuss former President Trump’s ongoing legal troubles, Club for Growth’s contribution to the Sen. Mike Lee campaign, the future of Utah Lake and the gerrymandering case against the Utah Legislature.

    Ok, so Shireen characterizes tax cuts, you know, the government taking less of your money, as a ‘hand out’, yet she doesn’t call the literal handout (using the money the government takes from you) to bail out student debt a handout.

    She also cites economic justifications for the government bailing out an individual’s debt, yet ignores and demonizes the economic benefits of tax cuts.

    So she only cares about economics when it can be used to justify policies she agrees with, and is willing to gaslight people by redefining words to make change happen.

    In addition, she is willing to cite polls with no specific policy attachments when it aligns with her views, ignoring the far more relevant measure of public sentiment that comes from how Utahns actually vote.

    Politician through and through.
