re: Biden to cancel $1.2 Billion in student loans - CubsFanBudMan
[quote] I'm generally opposed to these measures, but it's a "better" waste of money than shipping munitions to Ukraine.[/quote] How so? If the munitions were manufactured in the US, then that creates jobs the support the local economies. All paying off student loan debt does is send money to ban...
