Biden administration expands student debt cancellation plans

The White House unveiled a draft expansion of its student debt cancellation plans on Thursday to help reduce financial hardship on struggling borrowers.

The proposal seeks to forgive student debt for borrowers who are likely unable to repay their loans and outlines more than a dozen factors to help determine who qualifies for the forgiveness.

The factors include household income, total debt balance, history of loan repayment, and whether they received a Pell Grant. However, no thresholds for these categories were listed.

“College is meant to lead to a better life, but too many students end up struggling due to their student debt,” Undersecretary of Education James Kvaal said in a statement. “The ideas we are outlining today will allow us to help struggling borrowers who are experiencing hardships in their lives, and they are part of President [Joe] Biden’s overall plan to give breathing room to as many student loan borrowers as possible. It’s an important part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s permanent solutions to the problem of unaffordable loans.”

The Biden administration said it was trying to forgive more student loans while still obeying a Supreme Court ruling handed down last year. Student loan cancellations are a major focal point for Biden’s presidential agenda and reelection campaign.

It really irritates that that MF'r is buying more votes from the useless degree set, with our money, even after it was ruled against.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
