       You can buy a lot of underperforming voters for that!

    Fire up the dollar printing machine again.

    It amazes me how anyone would think this is where our taxpayer dollars should go.

    Next up the gov't will subsidize your mortgage because your mortgage went up because of their inflationary spending.

    Nope, the burden for those loans are already placed on the taxpayer and are not included in this figure

    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    The federal loan program has already lost $311 billion.  Good job voters...

    Wealth redistribution or vote buying.
    Either way it is still wrong.

    These bozo’s think printing money and giving it away will help inflation.

    35k paid here.  Nothing is free.  People need to realize this.

    Paid my wife's loan too. She borrowed for nursing school. She already had a bachelors from the Philippines but when she got here her family tried to convince her to be a nurse. She ended up not liking nursing and quit it. When I met her she still had an outstanding balance and it took us a while to pay it off. I was still recovering financially from an earlier divorce at the time. It's only money but do we still have to use tax dollars to pay people who took loans and quit like my wife did? It was all for nothing. I know life isn't always fair but I am 100% against this.

    Stupid idea, you can tell that the ignorant masses came up with a way to have plumbers and carpenters pay for bad choices of people that make less than 125k single or 250k married.
        Many people decided they couldn’t afford college but would have appreciated it more, a better idea would have been to use that money for people that want to go and make better choices.
         It’s still dumb, but not as stupid as the one they are pushing.

    Keller - my wife's was close to 50k at one time before we met. Bachelors and Masters, Not Liberal arts. 
    Mental Health Field.  Pay was pretty poor until she could get a state license. Which takes a couple of years of practical hands on work experience and additional course work above a Masters.  Even with the state license, pay was only fair in the public sector.  In 2015 she finally went private sector, less stress and much better money. 

    Conchy - I was coming off a divorce as well when I met my wife. An expensive divorce. 
    I feel you.

    Paying off debt that people voluntarily took on doesn’t fix the real issue. Universities are too expensive. Universities should be barred from offering garbage degrees. Tenure should be outlawed. Required credits to get a degree shouldn’t include dozens of nonsense electives. That’s just a start

     It gives permission to universities to raise their tuition, probably by about 10k and up.

    Hear ! ! !  Hear ! ! !  Absolute truth, esp. getting rid of tenure.  Nonsense electives right behind.

    I just have a hard time blaming all of this on the universities.

    If someone is so stupid to want a degree which is absolutely useless they should be responsible for their stupidity.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Also employers that require a degree when a degree is not need to perform the job drives the trash degree market.

    Talking points:

    Anything that helps or bails out billionaires and big business is necessary for our economy to survive. 

    Anything that helps struggling Americans is inflationary.

    It is always obvious when you don’t have a decent argument as you always attempt to derail the thread.

    Perhaps, but we all know he's not paying the rent there either.
     
    Doesn't have to. He owns you outright.
