    Not sure why the he should! Most borrow money and pay it back do not except a bail out. They knew the cost and the insterest (unless they are in Rural America and can not make a copy of their Id just ask Harris !)

    NYU Is Top-Ranked—In Loans That Alumni and Parents Struggle to Repay
    https://businesshala.com/nyu-is-top-...ggle-to-repay/

    Ms Jones first hatched her eggs before starting at NYU in 2017 to help pay for moving to the city, she said. She received a $12,500 annual scholarship and relied on $131,000 in federal loans to cover the rest of her tuition and expenses. She has laid her eggs five times, including at an NYU fertility clinic, earning $50,000.

    Now 28 years old, Ms Jones is working independently on public-health campaigns for nonprofits, earning about $1,500 a month, which is not covering her living expenses, she said. . She is applying for new jobs and is considering leaving the field. She said of her debt, “There are certainly moments where that number comes in as this tunnel, with no light at the end of it.” “It’s like I’m stuck.”


    Poor girl

    From the left's view point, Brandon should do this. He should also legalize weed. There are plenty of executive orders he could sign to help his miserable polling numbers.

    I'm glad he is not doing them.

    Education department to erase $415M in student loan debt for nearly 16K borrowers

    “Students count on their colleges to be truthful.

    Unfortunately, today’s findings show too many instances in which

    students were misled into loans at ins utions or programs that could not deliver what they’d promised.”



    • The U.S. Department of Education announced nearly 16,000 student borrowers will get $415 million in borrower defense.
    • About 1,800 former DeVry University students are part of that borrower defense, after the department found Devry claimed a 90 percent job placement rate.
    • The department found DeVry’s actual job placement rate to be around 58 percent.


    https://thehill.com/changing-america...ion-in-student

    Repug Dept of Ed/Devos, in the loan servicing business, did not and would not have helped scammed students

    Anybody from from the fraudulent for-profit scammers punished?

    'Cancel It. Every Penny':

    Poll Shows 83% of Democrats Want Biden to Nix Student Debt


    "Even Americans who don't carry student debt themselves are sympathetic and are supportive of loan forgiveness."

    https://www.commondreams.org/news/20...x-student-debt

    IIRC, 92% of the loans are govt, the rest are private.

    IDIOTS - you work hard, you sacrifice, scrimp and save to pay off yours and then WE must pay for those who rack up trillions in student debt. Why stop there? Why not auto loans, mortgage and credit card debt?

    If they forgive the loans they need to kill the loan program in the same bill. Loaning students money for their education is either good or bad. If "preying on innocent students" is bad then they need to stop the loan program..

    Agreed. A one time mass student debt cancellation E.O. without any actual reform is a re ed idea. It'll just lead to the same student debt issue we have now in another 10 years, potentially even worse if people think their student loan debt will just get foregiven.

    (FTR, I don't support mass student debt cancellation at all)

    I still stand by the solution of making it so student debt is dischargeable in bankruptcy. If lenders actually had to worry about lending to a deadbeat transgender studies major, student loan availability would shrink and tuition eventually would too imo.

    It's the best market-based solution.
