 Student Loan 'Forgiveness'?

I read VoxDays argument and wouldnt it depend on if the government borrowed the money to make the student loans? If the government printed the money for the debt and then canceled it I agree it would be a decrease in money supply and deflationary. But isnt our currency borrowed into existence? If thats this case the debts are canceled for the borrowers, but remain on the balance sheet of the government. That looks like an increase in the money supply and therefore is inflationary. What am I missing?
