Cancel student debt for nearly everyone?
quote:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren says she’d order her secretary of education to cancel up to $50,000 in college debt for about 95% of student borrowers on her first day in office, effectively erasing outstanding loans for about 42 million Americans.

Seems unfair to the students who worked hard and paid off their loans.

This doesn't cancel any debt.

This transfers responsibility from the person who agreed to the loan to others who did not agree to the loan.

Or to those who didn't need loans to pay for school.

You mean tax payers put the student debt on a credit card. They don’t just cancel it and say oh ok we don’t want to get paid back what we lent you.

I feel like for a party of people that preach about sustainability when it comes to the environment, sustainability of the economy means absolutely nothing to them.

Why not just make the interest rates for student loans capped at 1-2%? Total forgiveness is dumb and I’m saying this knowing I would benefit greatly from the 50k forgiveness. I also wonder is that includes those people who refinanced or consolidated their loans through a private company.

Promising free shite to the irresponsible/poors is how they get votes and why capitalistic countries turned socialist and eventually communist throughout history.

Moving it to a 2% interest rate seems like a better compromise.

I would expect a check for the roughly $15,000 that I paid off three years after graduating then.
