School Loan Forgiveness and Free Education

Bernie is stepping up the voter bribe game by offering to use taxpayer funds to pay off student debts. At this point almost all the democratic candidates are trying to bribe the voter base. The Democrats of old are gone, we now have full blown socialists.

Right, and he's saying the funds will come from a tax on financial transactions. So not only will the loans be forgiven, but it will be implemented at the expense of crumbling our entire financial system.

And what if you dont have student debt but still went to college? Why does the person with the loan get a free ride but the person who paid in full does not?

Well, you guys all paid for my Master's degree (taxes spent on government employees going to college) so Thank You.

I had to pay for my own matriculation expenses and my own sealed degree plaque.

Those who worked through school and have no debt? Sorry.
Those who had student debt and paid it off? Sorry.
Those whose families saved and sacrificed to pay for school so the student could emerge debt-free? Sorry.

My dad used to say “There is nothing fair or just in this world” and I think he was right.

All that said, there is a real problem of people with large loans outstanding and likely no ability to repay in any reasonable time. Can’t really be refinanced, and bankruptcy proof (which I understand given that the borrowers were not credit worthy). To some extent these people were screwed by incomplete information/understanding when they entered college, decided on majors and signed up for the loans. Personally I think the colleges should be making this right - they promised good degrees as an entree to the job market (instead of selling education for its own sake, which will never repay a loan), and encouraged debt while allowing their costs and tuition (plus room and board) to escalate well beyond inflation for decades. I wouldn’t ask taxpayers to foot the bill before the university legal, financial and endowment options have been fully exercised.

Brilliant idea - those with big school debt just declare bankruptcy?

There are consequences though like no credit for a long time after that.

You can't do that. Only retail unsecured debt is dischargeable through bankruptcy. Govt debt or govt backed unsecured debt is not dischargeable.

So if the borrower just never pays they never get credit approval? Beats debtor prison

You basically have to pay or your credit goes to sh1t. And you can't get rid of it in bankruptcy and it will stay bad debt forever and you'll never get a credit card or mortgage ever again.

And the supporters of these candidates are brain dead enough to actually believe these will be “free”.

Free = taxpayer funded

^This times a thousand! For ever person that gets a loan forgiven, there are several more that either busted ass and graduated with no debt or already paid off their loans. I am sure not all of them are Republicans. How do you combat the "what about me?" issue for all of those folks?

How are they ridiculous? They are like 6%ish for a completely unsecured loan that is typically given to nearly anyone regardless of credit. If anything, loan rates are too low and are artificially subdued due to the inability to BK student loan debt.

Student loan debt is not bankruptable.

Funny that the Dems promise all this shit to people that vote for them anyways. To people with half a brain they look like morons promising all this stuff. More and more its the party of the retarded, but that's shows where the U.S. is headed.

Like I've said I'm 73 so it won't physically affect me..just mentally.

Did colleges really force people to take worthless degrees that dont have any real job prospects, or did people get those degrees because it was easier or more interesting than a degree in a field that actually has a need for workers and pays well?

its not the colleges fault that Eric the Barista got a poly sci or art history major and has no job prospects. That falls on the student, and the parents

this whole thing sucks for those that either busted ass during school or busted ass after school to get those loans paid off.

if only i had known it would be forgiven, i woulda gone out and bought an m3 right out of school like so many of the tards do that are now crying about their loans.

I think now it's about getting the nomination. Then it will be aimed and getting the voter turnout up. Think about the Dem's talk about lowering the voting age to 16. Might as well lower to 12 and promise free video games.
