It’s only taxpayer money

Aug 28 2022, 7:07 AM

I am appalled at this giant giveaway of money to people who took student loans. I worked so hard to put three kids through college without loans. We took a second mortgage and provided the money to pay the bills. We didn't take vacations or drive new cars. We didn't live in a grand mansion of a house. 

The rewards are that I now get to pay off others’ loans with my taxes. I cry foul. 

The problem is colleges are too expensive and this giant giveaway will not address that. If anything, you will just see them raise rates as apparently our elected officials don't care what they charge. It's only taxpayer money, so just give it away?
