 Student Loan 'Forgiveness'?

Who is actually holding this debt and how is it being paid.
VoxDay makes the argument that this will be deflationary as it removes debt/money from the system.
I personally think the whole college loan system is a scam.
I finished my engineering degree at U of I Chicago in '87 while working a full time job as a tech with no debt.
Tuition was $1K per semester.
My wife and I had our own apartment. I rode the L to school.
I don't think that's even possible anymore.

Just make the loans dischargeable in bankruptcy.
That will bring discipline to the system.

When everything appears to be going in one direction, take a long, hard look in the opposite direction.

That is the proper singular pronoun for '共匪'.

The biggest problem, as I see it, is that today's 'yute' have no problem grifting and screwing other people. Never mind actually wanting to put in hard work.

Not all of course but for the most part that is the case. Yet another reason we a screwed as a society. The perfect, very indulged child is not doing well surviving in the real world.

Well, why not when all you've witnessed is getting it up the ass for your entire life?

The difference between "kill" and "murder" is that murder, as a subset of kill, is undeserved by the deceased.

I worked hard all my life, but I stayed drunk so the screwing wasn't as painful.

I should have never quite drinking!

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?

While no one was looking, a Federal judge in Texas ruled yesterday that Bide's loan forgiveness scheme is illegal. Liberal heads exploding.

Right on time. The entire program was to get the ethnic studies majors out to vote for the commies.

It's not looking so good for the freeshitarmy....

The Supreme Courts conservatives gave a sharply critical hearing Tuesday to President Bidens plan to forgive more than $400 billion in student loans, arguing that only Congress could approve such a large amount of federal spending.
We are talking about a half-trillion dollars and 43 million Americans, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. told Solicitor Gen. Elizabeth Prelogar, who was defending the administration. We take separation of powers very seriously, he said, yet Congress had not approved this spending. And you say there is no role for us to play, he added.

The comments were echoed by his conservative colleagues, most of whom sounded ready to rule against the administration.

They are also supposed to start cleaning up the Medicaid recipients beginning g April 1st. Apparently they haven't been keeping track of eligibility over the last few years (covid of course). It supposedly affects around 14 million. Some folks aren't going to be happy.

The pause of student loan payments ends in August I believe. That will blow another hole in a lot of budgets.

was he able to say that with a straight face? ... after what he did with Obamacare?
