Michigan Democrat and Socialist Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Socialist took to the House floor recently to complain about her personal student debt and advocated American taxpayers should bail out students like her.

But many criticized the slamming comments made by Rep. Tlaib arguing her complaints about her student loan debt proves federal bailouts would benefit the rich.

She said:

“I worked full time, Monday through Friday, ad took weekend classes to get my law degree. And still, close to $200,000 in debt. And I still owe over $70,000 and most of it was interest.”

Then she continues complaining, saying:

“It was our own government making profit off of me.”

“We have to stop treating as if folks that are paying for education as if they bought some [expensive] car.”

Notably, Tlaib makes a whopping $174,000 a year as a member of Congress.

A commentary piece made by Twitchy was blunt, and brief, said in a statement:

“Talk about out of touch.”

One commentator explained, explained that she worked multiple jobs to pay for her education.

“You chose to enter that debt,” she said. “We didn’t.”

Here are some of the comments from folks online:

Twitchy continued, “‘Everyone else should pay my bills’ might as well be the full Democratic Party platform at this point,” Twitchy continued.

“You borrow money … you pay it back. That’s how it works!” An Iran veteran explained economics to Tlaib.

Another pointed out, to Tlaib, “You could’ve become a raging loon in Congress without a law degree.”

    I’d gladly pitch in to send her & the other “ squad” members a one way ticket to any socialist country they wish, they just can’t come back to the USA.

    I have an idea-she’s a lefty, a woman of color and definitely non-Christian, so she wouldn’t have any problem at all getting on welfare. She’ll have to drop that job in the Congress, but she’s already told us how difficult living on $175,000 annually is. If she goes on welfare, her lifestyle will be lowered, but she won’t have a damned thing to do except sit at home and bitch about how terrible the country is. This is all she’s any good for in the first place.
