    He does more than any President since the creation of Pell Grants. But it’s not perfect, so vote Republican. Go away. Grow up.

    Therefore, NO help is better than a small amount of help?

    You’d rather he throw NO ring in? Politics is the art of the possible — and you can’t help everyone, especially with a congress so dead set against helping ANYONE. Sure, the entire higher education system is rigged to keep lower-income people out, and sure, this is only one tiny step. But you have to start somewhere, and this is the best start we’ve seen in a long time.

    I have found that some people are unable to partake of the Govts largess because they borrowed from someplace other than the preferred lenders. And they can’t pull a Trump(declare bankruptcy)because of the way the law is written

    This cartoon can be interpreted in 2 different ways, either too much money or not enough. Other thoughts?

    Maybe if employers would pay a living wage that kept up with everything else going up, there would be a whole lot fewer people in need of this lifeline.

    College is Big Business, for-profit, with vastly-overcompensated College:University presidents. It is the American Way.

    So, if Joe is only sending out one life preserver for hundreds of students, then what’s the Repubs complaining about? He just took a page out of their playbook. I and Joe would rather have free tuition and subsidized board for all students but that’ll only happen in an all Dem congress and WH.

    Here’s a crazy idea. I know it’s nutty to think this way in America but maybe they could pay off the loan like I did my house. It’s not complicated. you work and give some of the money made to whoever loaned you the money. I’m doing it right now with my truck loan.

    What the hell is he supposed to do? His current, modest proposal, is likely to end up getting knocked down by the courts.

    Golly Mr. Ariall! Just think what could be done if Congress got off their collective backsides and did something about it.

    Vote Blue and get something done!

    Many of the college loans went to students who were conned by false advertising by dubious fly by night “colleges” of skin care, massage therapy or Trump university level scams.

    Nah. Do nothing at all, watch people drown, and say they deserved to die for trying to get an education.

    Please excuse the repost, but here’s the Republican plan: Despite being in the minority, members of the SCOTUS, “Conservatives,” RWNJs, and white supremacists are attempting to drag this country back to their imaginary Jeffersonian agrarian idyl. The 1790 census (when Jefferson was Secretary of State), counted 5.3M Americans. Only white males owning 50 acres or more of land were permitted to vote, approximately 6% of the population. Free white men who did not own land, free white females, and slaves could not vote.

    In 1790 the American population was largely rural, making a living by farming. Our most recent census counted 332,403,650 Americans. Current estimates are that 83% of Americans live in urban areas. They do not work at farming.

    In pursuit of “small government,” the following are conservatives’ goals for their Jeffersonian America: 1. No women’s rights. 2. No civil rights for people of color, or for any other minority groups. 3. No immigration, other than Caucasians. 4. No labor unions. 5. No health insurance. 6. No legal recourse due to Republican-packed courts. 7. No social security. 8. No disability insurance. 9. No minimum wage. 10. No free and fair elections (ultimately, no elections). 11. Imposed state religion; government funding of religious schools.12. Unregulated militias unchecked by Republican-packed courts. 13. No work on mitigating climate change; no environmental protections. 14. No free press. Continued…

    Repost Continued: GOP politicians don’t care about the environment or mitigating climate change because they intend to stay permanently in office and use their money and power to take over remaining livable locations as environmental conditions worsen. Republican leaders don’t care if America dies as long as they can feed off the carcass for their lifetimes.

    Consider how many people would have to die or be virtually enslaved for their platform to work. Why do you people who support today’s GOP, Trump, and Trump wannabes think that you will come out winners under this regime?

    This helps millions of people. It wipes out debt for many. The provisions to lower the portion of income required from 10% to 5% means millions more will have substantial income to buy houses, etc. Giving extra money to Pell grant students (who are disproportionately Black) is a great idea.

    No, it doesn’t alter the lives of everyone who took out $100k loans for grad degrees. Expanded forgiveness to people who go into public service work will. If you got an MA from an expensive school & decided to become a niche podcaster living in Brooklyn, I don’t know what to tell ya.

    The students will pay their loans as soon as the billionaires tax breaks trickle down to them.

    A better solution would be to increase state/federal support of State universities and colleges back to the pre-1970 level of 70+%. Right now it’s at 20-30%, forcing students to make up the difference. My blue- and pink-collar parents had no trouble paying for my 1969 degree, nor did the parents of most of those hypocritical Republicans hollering the loudest, as Michael Hiltzik described in his article in today’s L.A. Times.
