I have gotten some pushback on my relative excitement over the student loan forgiveness concept.
And he makes a lot of good points. But I still maintain that, yes, if I’m going to have my money stolen from me, and transferred to others, I would rather that money go to people who graduated from college instead of people who bought big houses. I think that, across the spectrum of unpleasantly unfair things, that is the least unfair option.
I’m sure there are people out there who disagree – who would rather see the money go to homeowners. I respect that.
If you have other ideas on a more fair transfer of money from your pocket to someone elses, suggest it. As long as you understand – it is going to happen – someone is going to get the benefit of your hard work, and it is not going to be you, or anyone you love.
