If you’re a Christian and mad about the possibility of student loan debt being canceled, let me remind you that your entire religion is based on a debt you couldn’t pay that someone stepped in and paid for you.

I lobbed up a typo for you. I would have thought you would be all over it so it could put a smile on your face.

No, Scott. You are wrong. You, again, used a generalization about a specific group into which I would be a member of; people who took out student loans. Period. Done. You can't change that. You made the statement. Have the balls to stand by it, even amend it. But don't insult me for pointing out a response to your statement.

I cannot believe Scott has any issue with people who took out student loans, my wife and I both did. And I don't have an issue with anyone taking advantage of this program if they are eligible. Personally, I have issues with people who have felt entitled to this and advocated for it.

For most Americans, a strong system of public education is a core value.

Extremists want to destroy that in any and all forms.

Don’t let them.

As a Boomer myself, my generation didn't work hard to get the benefits we had, our parents & grandparents did. They didn't say "I didn't have that so why should you?" They said, "I want better for the next generations." Their boomer kids said "I'm good. Ef’m!”

Give me one conceivable reason why a student loan gets forgiven, but not his business loan?

answer - student loans enrich colleges which are huge allies of the democrat party.

this is also a huge transfer of wealth from the poor to the upper class.

Gonna run up the BS flag on you here. First you need to back up your answer with facts about how student loans and their forgiveness directly enrich colleges. I am sure you can come up with bullet proof documentation... And secondly, let's pull the name of the kid's landscaping business and the town he is in. I will put money down that he got a PPP loan, and maybe two, since forgiven, that would be twice what i made during those two years. Tell me how that loan was more deserving please....

$800 Billion in the PPP boondoggle makes this look like well spent chump change. The #^&#^&#^&#^& people get crazy about and they conveniently forget when they benefitted from going to the well.....

I have friends in Canada, where college tuition runs <9K (in American $), everyone has health insurance & maternity leave lasts a year. Also, abortion is both legal & publicly funded.

i didn’t like PPP either, but that was done to save jobs that weren’t lost by anyone’s choice, they were lost because the government shut them down.

the government didn’t force anybody to take out any student loans.

why should a poor person struggling every month, bear the burden of someone making 250k who chose to take out loans? other then the fact that you like that you’re benefitting, what’s the logic?

call back all you want.

government-backed loans are a huge boon to colleges. The college has absolutely zero risk because they get their money up front.

economics 101. cheap money makes prices higher.

this will make it way worse. kids will
assume future loans will
be transferred away from
them, so why not take out a stupid loan?

i don’t have documentation. it’s common sense. if students were forced to rely on savings, colleges would be forced to lower prices.

you can’t win this one with logic. because there isn’t any to support it. it’s a vote buying transfer of wealth that will benefit affluent people
far more than it will benefit poor people.

business owners were victims of ( it turns out) stupid state governments shutting down the economy. the business owners didn’t choose to shut down the economy
.

your kids chose to take out the loans. big, big difference.

how would that be wayne?...is this going to be permanent for loans going forward into the future? are all future college students going to be able to count on brandon knocking 10 grand off their total? do the kids that continued to pay their loans during the time the loans were not being repaid over the last few years get a refund for being responsible?

Seems if they have a government loans from the programs listed .
why shouldn’t they qualify. That’s all.


And most who are qualified to get the 10k waved . Haven’t stopped paying their loans or suddenly going to stop paying what they owe.

Many have stopped paying the past and many will in the future . But that’s with any loan

Millions in covid aid went to retrain veterans. Only 397 landed jobs.
Nearly $400 million went to a veteran retraining program as part of the American Rescue Plan

Not sure why Republicans aren’t outraged over that. Or dems f

comparing this to PPP forgiveness is wrong. When people took that PPP money, the agreement was that it would
not have to be repaid if the business owner used most to pay employees and if they agreed to hire employees back after the lockdowns ended. It was not set up as a loan to be repaid

With student loans, the borrowers promised to repay borrowed money.

Just do what you said you’d do, and keep your entitled hands out of my wallet.

No comparison.

They came into their riches by participating in what experts say is the theft of as much as $80 billion — or about 10 percent — of the $800 billion handed out in a Covid relief plan known as the Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP. That’s on top of the $90 billion to $400 billion believed to have been stolen from the $900 billion Covid unemployment relief program — at least half taken by fraudsters


yep its funny to see your comparisons . then claim there's no comparison

Bidens committing Theft of hard working americans giving liberals loan relief in your eyes and republican messaging ..

But you and your party are more concerned about hunters Laptop then recovering all this taxpayer Money

Why is That?

PPP wasnt a loan that businesses agreed to pay back. the agreement was that it wouldnt have to be repaid if conditions were met.

Student loans were a contract that stipulated repayment. Everyone who took out a loan, including my wife and i, chose to do so

Student loans are nothing like PPP.
