Will Your Student Loan Debt Be Forgiven?

Roughly 45 million Americans collectively owe $1.7 trillion in student debt. Many are hoping for student debt relief because the student debt crisis has gotten out of control.
In the past, the US subsidized higher education giving students a chance to work their way through school. But today, a college student working 40 hours a week at a minimum wage job would bring in a total of $15,080 per year - and during the 2019-2020 academic year, college cost $30,017, on average.
In the past 10 years, college costs increased by more than 16% and student debt increased by 99%, which means roughly 70% of college students take out loans to pay for their education.
Approximately $165 billion worth of federal-managed student loans are currently considered in default (typically defined as having gone at least 270 days without making a payment)- and this total may increase once the pause on federal student loan payments expires. Default impacts the financial freedom of borrowers and many may never be able to pay back what they owe.
Now, legislators appear to be seriously considering student debt forgiveness, but what is being proposed and why is it student debt forgiveness so controversial?

  • The elites know what they are doing with the college system. The first why they get you into the debt slave mentally is to go to college. The purposely make student loans non bankrupt-able so that you are stuck with that debt fir the rest of your life. It is a game that people need to understand. If you are going to go to college it has to be a field that is in demand and that pays well. It’s not about your “pAsSoN” because your passion most likely won’t get you a job or a job that pays well.

  • A decent presentation on student debt issue. All of the speakers provided reasons for why the debt should be cancelled but there was no one to discuss why the debts should not be forgiven. The presentation claims that 66% of those in default owe $10,000 or less and would be free and clear. I think CNBC should have good speakers that could present both sides this issue. When the federal government started to issue loans directly and not through banks, many individuals were loaned money without strong review. A increase in capital then flooded college systems and the price went up as would any system. Finally, these individuals asked for the loans and pledged that they would return what they spent. Maybe the government should make it easier to pay it back but it most be paid back. Student debt is not a natural disaster or tragedy but an individual choice. Government must stop loaning money and let banks do that. If the issue is fairness, then there can be no cancellation of debt in light of those who saved or paid their loans back or who choose not to go to college.

  • Biden Can fix the student loan debt by paying directly to institutions and forgiving student debt. Give students a fresh start similar to those who file bankruptcy. Without it, things will be worst because the new economy Biden is creating which doesn't require degrees means that all the students that went to school to get a degree can be by passed in the hiring process by individuals who never went to school. This is unfair to students who believed what the government said that education was necessary to make Americans competitive with the world and to get quality jobs. What do all the students do now that a new economy does not require 4-8 years of education? It is only the right thing to do. So forgive all student debt. because now, degrees will no longer be an advantage. Covid-19 impacted everyone including students! $10,000 is not enough. Most students spend over 50-100,000

  • Get rid of student loans all together. It will force colleges to lower tuition rates to a reasonable amount. Introducing credit into the equation artificially inflates prices, which is why colleges are able to charge disgustingly high prices. Not many people can afford to pay $50K or more per year upfront in cash. Very few people would apply and that would force colleges to lower tuition rates to more accessible numbers. Everyone talks about how cheap college used to me. It’s no coincidence that back then they didn’t have the option to take out student loans.

  • This is what I would do with the student loan debt: All interests paid will be added to the principal balance. Also, cancel all accumulated interest and leave it at 0. So one still has to pay it back, but with 0 interest. Many people have paid thousand just on interests. I’m sure adding that to principal would help a bunch.

  • Most people don't pay their student loans off anyway. I know 50 year olds who've been getting deferments all these years and barely paid a dime. They will die with that debt, but still have okay credit because the deferment stops late payment reporting. Forgiveness isn't going to hurt anything because the loan was never going to get paid off anyway.

Students aren't stupid (ok, there may be an argument there) so they are just going to continue borrowing and hoping someone else will pay it off. And guess what? The student loan money DOESN'T HAVE TO GO ONLY TOWARD TUITION! It can go for buying a car, taking a much needed spring break to Cancun, buying a designer purse, buying designer cloths, shall I go on? Why should my wife and I have to pay for some other cnotty brats education when we fully paid for our two daughters education? And we both have Masters and never took a dime of student loan money.

  • I think that the underlying problem needs to be addressed in tandem with debt forgiveness. Federal backed student loans allow schools to raise tuition each year, which has helped balloon prices so egregiously. I took out about $31k in student loan debt in 2010 and have repaid half. I was also told by parents, teachers, guidance counselors that college was a good investment and that I’d need a degree to be successful. I don’t regret college, and Im one of the lucky ones able to find employment to pay back my loans. But I’d love to see debt forgiveness across the board, as well as a revamp of the loan allocation process. Honestly would love if my taxes helped pay for university education for everyone. Why we wouldn’t (specifically Americans) want to prioritize education is beyond me but I know that not everyone feels this way.

  • I worked 30 hours a week to pay for living expenses while going to college, because of that I was forced to take out loans to pay for college. When I didn't work one summer, I got free money to pay for school. Something is wrong with that. I came out of school with $70k in debt for a computer engineering and electrical engineering degree. The first time I saw my loans actually go down was when I kept paying during the recent no-interest loan stint. I've been out of college for about 8 years now and been paying on them for maybe 6? Also, all the interest you pay on student loans doesn't help you on your taxes if you make above $80k. Found that out early on. Kind of a second kick in the gut. That being said, that piece of paper gets you a lot more opportunities that not going to college.

  • If they're going to be lenient about forgiving the debt then we need to be less lenient on what it's used for. I personally know too many students who use their loans to buy Teslas and go on spring break vacation. THAT is not the burden of the American taxpayer. Instead of forgiving the loans, we should just expand the Pell Grant program, which is regulated and has restrictions regarding what it's used for.

  • I wish students would start asking questions like "Why is university so expensive?" Instead of automatically wanting free education. The research is mind-blowing as to why costs are so high. Universities have become corrupt mini-government organizations. More students need to unite and support community colleges, if there is more money going towards community colleges there will get more resources to be able to add additional careers. That would mean you could get a career for half the time.

  • Here's my proposal to this. Give people the option that if they want their entire student loan amount forgiven they will pay an additional 5-7% in taxes from their paycheck their entire working life. If you make under a certain amount ($50,000/year) you don't need to pay that additional tax until you make above that amount. This money goes into a fund that helps pay for future students. Those who don't want this, had little debt, or didn't go to college don't have to pay this. This is similar to the system Australia uses.

    • True, many of it is regarding undergraduates. Those who apply to schools for the name like UC Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA and etc and come realize they are not cut out for their career and use the name of their school to secure job in another field. There are those in the graduate programs though that know what they want and spend extra years after undergraduate of studying to contribute back to society. These are your doctors, dentists, lawyers, nurse, vets and so much more. They are the ones that carry the biggest amount of school loans and yet their contribution to society is returned to them with higher tuition with failed loan relief programs like the PSLF. It makes these professionals juggle between making enough to pay off their half a million dollar debts and career. Rather make videos of me acting for UZworld or Tik Tok and make millions... hence the downward progression of importance placed on our education.

  • Another inherent issue is being forced to take classes that you have no interest in and will never use. This exacerbates debt without generating additional ability to repay. The colleges know that they can get funding by having certain courses required that are unnecessary. Overhaul the education system where people take classes that allow them to specialize (aka no fluff classes) and demand a higher salary upon graduation then student debt will fall.

Women and minority college grads will and have been paid LESS than their white, fe/male counterparts--in any field. I also wish the literally old members of government would understand that when THEY went to college it was way cheaper (even though it was expensive at the time) and they now make more as politicians than the average person and have been since able to repay THEIR loans.
