U.S.—Addressing audience questions at a CNN town hall Monday evening, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren promised to repay the debts of everyone who bought a PlayStation 4 on their Best Buy credit card.
The policy would subsidize the purchases of those who decided to borrow money at a high interest rate to afford a PlayStation 4 console, extra controllers, and games like Spider-Man and Red Dead Redemption 2.
"It's not like they just made a bad choice, financing something they couldn't afford," she said. "We really need to take care of these people who were preyed on by Best Buy, who absolutely forced them to finance an expensive current generation console."
"What kind of a nation are we if we don't pay off people's Best Buy loans? PlayStation is a human right," she said.
The proposed policy has garnered widespread support. However, Xbox owners were understandably upset that Warren didn't promise to pay off their debts, too. Also, people who borrowed a half-million dollars to purchase a home were feeling left out. Finally, people who borrowed money to pay for their cars, home appliances, lawn mowers, and random stuff on Amazon were also left out in the cold.
In response to these complaints, Warren has come out in favor of paying off all of Americans' debts by taxing them a lot more money.
