The College Republican National Committee this week released a new ad criticizing Democrats’ student loan proposals, which many Democrats have been featuring prominently in their campaigns.
The video parodies the ABC television show “Shark Tank,” in which entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to potential investors.
The ad features a “Democrat politician” pitching her student loan plan to a panel of “investors.”
“Our plan is to charge more for college, but lower the payments,” she says. “Students will think they’re getting a great deal. They won’t even notice how much more they’ll pay in the long run.”
The panel rejects that idea as not innovative enough. “It’s clear we need Republicans to create jobs and lower the cost of college,” says one of the panelists.
