Some college grads make better use of their education than others, obviously, but it would not be practical to examine every graduate's academic and professional track record and decide who really deserves loan forgiveness. Among many other reasons, we'd never reach agreement on what constitutes success and what it means to make good use of a degree.

R29 etc., you are taking this way too personally. No one is suggesting that you are a lesser person or your life and joy are worth less than other people's because you had to bust your ass to repay your loans while more recent graduates might be off the hook. It's obviously just not possible to go back and reimburse all the former students who have already paid off their loans; a loan forgiveness program would have to start with people who are still in debt. Or, as you sort of suggested, maybe a better plan is to make tuition less expensive/free for those who currently couldn't afford it without taking on a large debt load.
Either way, this proposed policy was not designed to punish you or make you feel "not equal" because you paid off your loans before the idea existed or became remotely realistic. That's kind of akin to saying, "Let's NOT release the new coronavirus vaccines because of all those people who died right before they were developed. Their lives were worth saving, too!"

Yes it is State schools Biden mentioned. Americans need to realize there will always be better everything for rich people even when poor people are given 'free' healthcare and education. In Europe rich people go to private schools, have private insurance and go to private universities. It just makes it easier to be an average Joe, especially one who works and it therefore above the threshold for welfare and grants but not earning enough to pay for health/education on the free market.
I really dislike resentment voting. I went through some shit because of when I was born, graduating into a recession, changing careers and now having that career under threat due to covid. But I always want better for those coming behind me. I wouldn't want anyone to be burdened by student loans that keep spiraling with crazy interest, I wouldn't want them to be stuck in the rental market unable to pay rent and save a downpayment. I wouldn't want anyone else to lose their mother to lung cancer and if they get better treatment I won't throw a strop because my mother couldn't have it.
There is a way to do this so that those who benefit are people are the lower middle classes who are now in jobs that pay an average salary without benefiting the ultra wealthy, kids who are earning 200K on Wall St, kids who are wasters etc.. And as for the people saying only those who can pay themselves should go, have you seen the cost? State schools would have to come down in price, community colleges free for those whose parents earn less than X amount and of course you have to still have exceptions for exceptional students. Otherwise we get stuck with only the ultra wealthy going to elite schools and walking into the most powerful and influential jobs and that is never a good idea.

I even used an inheritance that I could have used to buy a car or take a vacation. Check went straight to pay off the loans. It really isn't about what I did, but more about "You take it out, you pay it back." I will admit I didn't understand it at the time how it worked. They really did give any idiot (me) a loan. There is absolutely zero qualification because they know you can never shake it.
I do agree that they should be capped as to interest before repayment starts and made dischargeable in bankruptcy if someone really needs to go that route.

I wonder how much she actually ended up borrowing.

Earning 6 figures straight out of school and still wound up that someone somewhere is getting one over on you.

He would practically snort in anger when we drove past the bleak block of council flats near my school because someone was getting to live there for free while he had to pay for his mansion.

I know a lot of people who earn 30-50K and have c.50=70K in student loans that they just cannot make a dent in. They would supply urine, blood, DNA, a pap smear and a whole body MRI for 10K so they could finally start paying down the principle. If someone is put off my the hassle of supplying paperwork then they probably don't need the money that much.

I'm not European or live in Europe, so I don't care.

This thread is a great example of why America will continue to circle the drain. Do you all realize how astronomically expensive and overpriced college and healthcare are in the United States? Experts have been saying for years the higher ed bubble is going to burst eventually, just like the housing market.
Instead of talking about that, ditzy Americans can only think about how unfair it is that someone else gets their loans forgiven. The elite, who are slowly taking over the world, could give a shit about you "not buying nice things for years" because you paid back your little loans. They are laughing all the way to bank and want you continue having the "crabs in the barrel" syndrome so the generations after you stay poor as well. Meanwhile, the entire US consumer economy that generates jobs and income for you continues to be eaten away because people are in debt to the government.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
