    I hear that as a campaign issue and as a Democrat promise.

    As of a year or so ago, more than 44 million Americans have outstanding student loan debt, which has become the one of the biggest consumer debt categories, and all told, student debt in the U.S. totals more than $1.5 trillion.

    What say you -- will it happen? should it?

    If so, when and how? all debt? will it matter how old the debt is? will a student today incur debt with the expectation it won't need to be repaid? and so for.

    Lots of "unintended consequences" to consider.

    Thread open for all student debt stuff.

    I left USC with a Student Debt. Busted my arse and paid it off in 5 years back in 90's.

    1.5 Trillion tap Bezos, Gates , Zuckershlong, Twitter dork, and Buffet to chip in and pay it off they made billions off COVID19

    Seemed like a lot of money until Trump tossed out 3 trillion in elect Trump dollars. Now he wants more, even though he does not believe in anti covid measures. I talked to a guy who bought a new house in Havasu with his PPP money, good for the economy.

    You pick gender or Africana studies, you should get stuck with the debt since you will make zero contribution to society.

    Stupid is as Stupid does...

    Remember, this is the D.C. Swamp with all its denizen alive and well while the U.S.A. is burned, looted, illegally occupied, anarchy bludgeoned, culture destroyed, corporation humiliated and destined to face the greatest evil this country has ever seen.

    Our "elected leaders" are a spineless bunch of ass and cowards when it comes to the U.S. Constitution and all it is meant to stand for. They can keep their fringed flag and kneel to the fake "Corporation of the United States" parading around as our government.

    The sad part is that people who choose majors like gender or African studies probably gets more financial aid than those who choose to be doctors, dentists or pharmacists.

    Aside -- Back in the day, many of those taking what are seen as frivolous majors were in fact successfully pursuing the Mrs.
