Yeah, and who would know better

You can never be too dumb or too privileged to be a right-wing asshole:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson came to the conclusion on Sunday that low student loan rates were to blame for long-term joblessness.

Source, his ass.

Of course, Tucker is a child of privilege.  

He is the elder son of Richard Warner Carlson, a former Los Angeles news anchor and U.S. ambassador to the Seychelles who was president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and director of Voice of America.[2] His adoptive mother is Patricia Caroline Swanson (born 1945), former wife of Howard Feldman and an heiress to the Swanson food-conglomerate fortune.[2][3] He has a brother, Buckley Swanson Peck Carlson.[4][5] A great-uncle was Sen. J. William Fulbright.[3]

He attended St. George's School, a boarding school in Middletown, Rhode Island. After graduation, he majored in History at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
Hard-scrabbled existence that really pulled himself up by his bootstraps that Tucker.

Why cannot more people work hard and become a fishstick-heir?

So they're sticking with it. And you can get a 30-year fixed mortgage at about 4-1/4%.

The long-term Republican game plan must be a military coup. These indentured servants are lost to them for life.

"A great-uncle was Sen. J. William Fulbright."

That, of course, would be "Fulbright" as in "Fulbright Scholarship", just another tyranny that is "...(keeping) people out of the labor market. This is a dangerous spiral.”

Fucker is a scion of privilege. Unlike all that rabble that have to go to college and pay for it, somehow, themselves.

Of course he would blame them. That's what the aristocracy does.

yet the 2% is more focused on profits to be the job creaters the GOP claims they are.

but now it is OUR fault.

Tucker has a brother named Buckley! How much do you want to bet that he went by "Bucky" back in the day? Did Tucker go by "Tucky"? "Tucking?" In any case, how so very precious! As kids they spent rainy afternoons playing dress up and trying on each other's bow ties.
