Senator Elizabeth Warren got an earful at a recent campaign stop from a hardworking father who’s not happy he will “get screwed” under the socialist’s “free” college scheme.

“OUCH Lizzie is confronted by a father who worked double shifts to pay for his daughters education and wants to know if he gets his money back,” Miguelifornia posted to Twitter with a video of the exchange. “Lizzie smirks .. @realDonaldTrump #IOWA”
The encounter appears to take place in the meet and greet line, reportedly following a “community conversation” in Grimes, Iowa on Monday.
“My daughter is getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money. She doesn’t have student loans. Am I going to get my money back?” a man in a brown leather jacket asked Warren.
“Of course not,” the Massachusetts Senator shot back.
“So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money, and then those of us who did the right thing get screwed,” the man said, clearly agitated.
Warren smirked and shrugged, “No, it’s not anyone got screwed …”
“Of course we did. My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacation. I saved my money,” the man said. “He made more than I did, but I worked a double shift for the extra money for my daughter since she was 10.
“So you’re laughing at me,” he said.
“I’m not,” Warren argued.
“Ya, that’s exactly what you’re doing,” he insisted. “We did the right thing, and then we get screwed.”
“I appreciate it,” Warren said as she reached out to shake the man’s hand.
“Nah, that’s alright,” he said with a wave, storming off.
The man’s disgust with Warren’s so-called “free” college program resonated with a lot of folks online who worked hard to avoid tuition debt, and most were not impressed with the way Warren handled the question.
“She didn’t even care,” LIBERTY FOR ALL tweeted.

“She laughed!” Pam added.
He speaks for all of us who sacrificed to send our kids to college. And for those who paid their own loans off
