I for one paid my student loan back IN FULL.......left no responsibility of mine on other people so these worthless millennials can start there and take care of their own personal responsibilities before they will ever get any respect out of me.
Admittedly, I’ve not really had a conversation about this with a lot of young people with student loans, but so far I’ve not had any saying they were for it. As a matter of fact, most have been paying on theirs, and are opposed to it. It looks to me like it is just the politicians trying to buy votes.
I call it "underwater basket weaving"There have been "interviews" with those who couldn't pay because they got degrees with zero job potential (yes, it was their responsibility). The big problem is that easy money drove up the cost of "higher education" and, unlike a mortgage these loans were not based on any sort of criteria beyond going to school. Maybe it should be easy to get money to get an engineering degree or to become a doctor (if you show ability), but if you're going to major in underwater philosophy it should be on your own dime up front.
I also don't believe the "crisis" is as great as one party likes to campaign on...
