Psaki: Canceling Student Debt ‘on the
Table’ – Relief from Inflation Is
‘a Big Part of the Consideration’

Original Article

During an interview with “Pod Save America” on Thursday released on Friday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that canceling student loan debt is “on the table” and high costs are “an important thing to consider. That’s a big part of the consideration.”Psaki responded to a question [relevant exchange begins around 1:00:55] on whether taking executive action on student loan debt cancelation is still on the table by stating, “Yes, still on the table. … So, as you said, it ends August 31. We have to then decide whether it’s extended and what you look at is, even though the economy’s very strong, we created

My car loan and mortgage (30 years!) are big burdens too. Like student loans, I knowingly signed the promissory notes saying that I would pay them back without the expectation that someone else would. That is life as adult. It is time to stop treating these college graduates (and non grads) as adults, not like little children. Meet your financial responsibilities, figure out how to pay your loans. Be adults! Not children in adult bodies.

In 1990 my student loan balance was $15,000. Over 3 years the loan was repaid —- an estimated principle and interest total of $16,400, which is equal to approximately $32,800 in 2022 dollars. As Poster 1 said, let’s make this retro. /sar

Make the endowment funds of colleges and universities pony up first. As quickly as federal guaranteed student loans were made easy to get, the colleges and universities raised tuition rates. No one can deny that schools such as the Art Institutes opened up in poor areas of metropolitan areas to get students... to get them to get the federal loans and enrich the owners. Senator Olympia Snowe's husband, John McKernan, did this. Senator John McCain killed the investigations into the scam.

This is clearly a last ditch desperate effort to recapture the youth vote. My guess is that it will be a 50/50 split between those who will vote for the Ds because of it and those who will vote against them because of it. Any young person who worked hard to pay for their own education will think it's unfair, and so will any young person who paid off their own loans and so will all the young people who didn't go to college, or who joined the military for the education benefits. Not to mention all the parents who paid for their kids' college bills. You can see it already on discussion boards. It isn't overwhelmingly popular, even on far left sites, like DU.

So, relief from inflation is the cause on which they're going to hang this gigantic drain on Taxpayers' wallets! This explains why inflation had to be created and increased. This will be only the first of such thefts. On deck: reparations.

My husband paid for his own college education. We are currently paying half of our son's debt balance. It is your debt, you pay it. Where does it stop? I am sure that in the name of "social justice" the dems will want all public colleges to be "free" from now on. It's only fair going forward. Can a home, new car, 6 weeks paid vacation, a clothing allowance, food budget money, etc be far behind? Sneaking socialism in. Why does America have so many stupid people living here? Oh right, CRT and tranny dreams are being taught instead of a real education.

Jimmy Carter, back around 1978, changed the game on college costs and student loans. Remember that he created a separate agency for Education, removing it from Health, Education, and Welfare. Up until that time, student loans took into consideration parents' income, and the maximum loan was 1500 dollars. (I took out just one student loan for my doctorate, at that maximum amount.). Under the new Department of Education, parents income was essentially ignored, and the student was fully responsible paying it back. And under the Department of Education, colleges and universities could increase tuition, as well as room and board, and they did so, sometimes wildly. But the students ignored that, because the student loan was wrapped into their 'financial aid' package. How greedy were the colleges and universities? I was a dean of a school of business at a private university, and reported to the Academic Vice President. The AVP, who fancied himself an expert on university finance, often suggested that 'there was room for a 20% increase in tuition.' What did he mean by that? There was room for the increase because students could pay for it with student loans. Note that there was no connection with improvements of any kind at the school, just the ability to gouge the students. The other part of the cost of school had to do with dorms. Back around 15 years ago, there was a movement by many schools to build fancy dorms with private bedrooms and baths, in the form of apartments, 'because students were demanding that kind of living arrangement.' So many schools tore down perfectly good brick dorms, with double rooms and group bathrooms, and built the fancy apartments. But the students didn't want to pay the extra dorm costs for the fancy apartments, and many schools went deeply in debt, with the fancy dorms standing empty. (Edinboro University here in Erie County, Pa just yesterday announced that they were selling a fancy dorm complex to the highest bidder. Mixing unknown populations with college students has significant risk, and Edinboro may be acting foolishly - as foolishly as when they built those fancy dorms a decade ago.) As my students often said, "Just what is your point, Professor?" My point is that this canceling of student debt will encourage colleges and universities to go crazy on spending again, getting into the same mess that the student loans did to them back under Jimmy Carter.

Just give everyone a printer and let them print up whatever amount of money they want. $60k in student loans? No problem. Just print out $60k and be done with it. Of course, inflation's bad now, but we can definitely make it much worse.

Canceling these debts, or any debt will only ADD to inflation. The problem is not that there is not enough money circulating, rather there is too much in competition for the goods available. The supply side cannot keep up - and it all adds up to inflation. But, I'm sure the crack economists at the Fed and think tanks will jump into this debt forgiveness scheme with both feet, praising our addled President for the attempt, even if the outcome is exacerbation. The "cure" for inflation is years long and economically painful for many people. It carried on for 15 years the last time, from LBJ to Reagan, before being brought under control with grossly high interest rates - like 20% mortgages. Those TRILLIONS peed away on COVIDS relief are the real causes...and now we pay the consequences, one way or the other. Get ready for the long term.

The Democrats are really getting desperate. Watch as they throw everything they can at every special interest group in their vile party to "buy" votes. November has to be a blow out at the polls for this country to have a fighting chance to survive as a republic. I, like many, paid every penny of my student loans back. I helped my children in paying their student debt down. Now we are expected to pay for many who wasted money on worthless majors or degrees. This will so sit well with many hard working American voters.

Of course they want to keep the student loan program. How else would all those universities be able to afford to pay politicians like Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren hundreds of thousands of dollars for doing nothing? And if they can make American taxpayers pay off those loas, even better.

Idiot! Inflation HELPS people who have large debts! Although wages may not quite keep up, they do increase. The debt is in FIXED DOLLARS! and becomes a smaller fraction of one's salary. So she says inflation spurs the need for forgiving debt?

Sussmann filed a motion to dismiss the case in February, but a judge ruled in April that the case will be allowed to proceed.In the latest court filing, Durham noted that the CIA “concluded in early 2017” that the data didn’t “withstand technical scrutiny.”

Charles Murray just can’t help himself; he’s been a social scientist and prolific author for almost 40 years, writing books on the American experience and societal issues. Now he is back in the mix with a book, Facing Reality: Two Truths About Race in America (Encounter Books 2021), that follows up on the book he wrote with Richard Hernnstein, The Bell Curve (1994). That magnificent work blew the top off of racial debates in America by its in-depth analysis of racial cognitive ability (IQ) differences and socio-economic mobility of Americans and factors that are associated with success in life.
