 Student Loan 'Forgiveness'?

JackCrabb...before each child (so far) started college, we made it clear that since we were footing the bill, we'd be given full access to everything or the $pigot would be turned off.

But yeah, fuck the colleges, rusty chainsaw style.

Mikivoja: I agree. Since I was young I thought the employment world should be built more on the apprentice system rather than the college degree system. In the 1990s I met a retired bank president who was in his 90s. He had dropped out of school at age 13 to take a job sweeping floors in a bank, and worked his way up to the top without any further formal education. Employees starting at the bottom would be more dedicated and probably satisfied even with minimum wage if they could see the light at the end of the tunnel without having to take a 4 year break from income to earn a degree.

Biden administration will cancel student debt for half a million students from Corinthian Colleges

"Around 560,000 student loan borrowers who attended Corinthian Colleges will soon get their balances cleared, senior Biden administration officials say.

Formerly one of the largest for-profit education companies, the schools have been accused of predatory and unlawful practices, and faced numerous lawsuits.

The Biden administration plans to cancel all outstanding student loans for those who attended Corinthian Colleges, formerly one of the largest for-profit education companies, the U.S. Department of Education announced on Wednesday."

Only $300 billion to the tax payers, who's going to notice?

Where is the inflation from this going to show up?

I demand the end to the Guaranteed Student Loan program. If the borrowers can't pay it back we have no business being the Lender of last resort!

This wouldcrash costs for "further education" and eliminate the plethora of USELESS DEGREES that have been created out of thin air over the last 4 decades.

Here are just a few:

BFA in Puppet Art UConn
AA in Bicycle Design MN State
BFA Comic Art MN College of Art
MS in Foresight (Yep, predict the future) Univ. of Houston

All will qualify you for a job at Starbucks.

I think the inflation on this one's been baked in for some time; a good amount of the population hasn't paid on their student loans since covid kicked off.

My wife's involved with a University; they've suffered a noticeable uptick in enrollments with zero efforts since the discussion of this started;

They let them steal money from landlords with the rent and eviction moratorium, so they'll probably get away with this also, and if they do, then the next big reach will be to amnesty 10 or 20 million illegals.

@Mjeff87 "And I paid back every single penny."

A persons honor is worth more than money. Once squandered it can rarely be bought back and it is the price and the work required that dissuades most from the attempt.

We have lost the connection with honor in this nation and it will be our ruin.

You can in this instance sleep with your honor intact and for that I salute you.

I don't disagree with you @Bakerv

But what good does honor do against communists?

@Jack_crabb I would suggest that the disemboweling of communists and the hanging of their scalps on ones front porch would bring honor on your house.

It used to be honorable to lay waste to your enemies. I'd suggest a revitalization of that creed.

I like Karl's plan. I think it is fair and equitable for all. Sadly, I think this is Biden (or whomever is writing his speeches) trying to buy votes in November from people who want something for nothing. My wife calls them "the gimme gimmes".

Full disclosure - I was an undergraduate at FSU and did a Ph.D. in Polymer Science at UMASS. I had great advisors who worked with me to teach me how solve problems in the Analytical Chemistry division (I worked in Microscopy and Polymer Physics). I met my wife there (she was an Organic Polymer Chemist.)

My wife and I had some student loans (some "His" and "Hers" and "Ours"). We lived frugally and paid them all back with interest over a period of 10 years. We were happy to be done with them.

Graduates in fields like Social Work will take more time to do so. Either way, if one takes out debt, you have to agree to pay it back.

Why should a Skilled Trades worker (Plumber, Electrician) who did not go to college have to help you pay back your debt. The thouht is rediculous!
