Erasing Student Debt

Top Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren have announced major plans to cancel student debt. This used to be an issue candidates would avoid — now, it's front and center for the 2020 election.

    UBI is more fair. It would give people money to get out of debt but not disparage those who chose not to go into debt and who as a result of that choice have lower paying jobs.

    So if you want the government to pay off your student debt then you should also give the same amount of money to all the citizens that didn’t have the opportunity to go to college.

    College students have no income and nothing to put up for collateral. Yet banks let them take out thousands of dollars. Young entrepreneur wanting money for a business. Gets declined . Lol

    You degree holder from Princeton University get your student loan wiped clean, with taxes paid by a highschool drop out bus driver? This is fair how? Universities should be forced to offer GUARANTEE for EMPLOYMENT for its graduates and should pay off the loans if the students fail to pay.

    That's kinda like stealing. The guy who doesn't go to college learns a trade to provide for himself, and now he works for the guy who couldn't pay his debt. So worker guys taxes paid for dead beat boss's resume, which is his ticket to Lord over him and to be paid more. Can you see who gets screwed here, or are your socialist beer goggles on too tight ?
