I completely understand the burden of student loans. I also understand how having large student loan payments make it difficult to buy a house/have savings/have children/contribute to a retirement plan etc. That being said, loan forgiveness is not the solution, it’s just a bandaid. People (myself included) should have to pay back the money we borrowed (regardless of what the money is for). Why can’t we do something to fix the real problems? What about dealing with the obscene cost of education? Or the high interest rates? Or the way loan payments are applied?
