Mr. ROSE. Mr. Speaker, America is a country built on the idea of freedom. Freedom to most means the ability to live and make decisions without unreasonable constraints. Freedom does not mean freedom from individual responsibility.

Unfortunately, President Biden and those who support his wealthy student loan giveaway scheme have gotten it backwards. They believe that hardworking, blue-collar Tennesseans should foot the bills for the wealthy.

Simply put, this is plain wrong. Because in America, we are free to make decisions on our own and no one should be responsible for someone else's personal decisions.

Mr. Speaker, by forcing this draconian student loan buyout down the throats of taxpayers, President Biden is hindering our freedom. That is why I urge my colleagues to join me in standing on the side of freedom by voting ``yes'' on H.J. Res. 45.
