PIIP Lately #6 – Biden/Harris Ticket, Forced Busing, and Trump Student Loan Forgiveness

Kamala Harris is the VP nominee for President on the Democratic ticket…we discuss the selection Joe Biden made, and whether it is a good choice.

It was also pretty easy to predict that busing (forced busing or desegregation busing) would make its way back into the spotlight as a result of this VP selection.

Busing has been in the news the last few days. You might remember that this was not the first time busing became a hot topic.
The second round of the first Democratic primary debates on June 27 2019 included a fiery exchange between Biden and Harris.

Harris, in that debate, said to Biden “You also worked with [those segregationist senators] to oppose busing,”. Biden responded by saying ““I did not oppose busing in America,” Biden, who represented Delaware in the US Senate from 1973 to 2009, responded. “What I opposed is busing ordered by the Department of Education. That’s what I opposed.””

But despite the harsh disagreements between them on this issue and others, not only did Joe Biden still select Harris as his VP…but these two have a history of acting one way while portraying to the public a different image. They might not be all that different after-all?

Finally, On August 8, 2020, President Trump signed an executive order to suspend federal student loan interest and payments until December 31, 2020…the left is shocked that Trump would do such a thing.
