    Just to be clear, there is no plan to eliminate
    student debt.

    There is a plan to transfer that debt to those
    that don't owe it.

    Repeal the 13th then.

    Student debt is what keeps many college towns afloat.

    If your personal financial objective is to keep "college towns afloat"
    then by all means, send them your money. I paid off my own student loans, don't give a crap about keeping college towns afloat and do not want
    to spend my hard-earned money paying off some one else's student
    loans.

    And, BTW, America's major Universities have more than $200 billion
    in endowments.

    If you want only those who could pay back student loans to take them, you will have to seriously recalibrate your expectations of graduation that employability at any level becomes a condition for graduation.

    And then deal with the 30-somethings you still have in high school afterward.

    you get my point, though. The govt. uses our money in ways that irritate us. There's no line item deduction for govt. spending that we don't like.

    For reference, it's estimated this student loan debt reduction will cost an average taxpayer $200 a year. Whatever you paid in taxes for 2021, 11% went to welfare, 13% to DOD, 21% to Social Security. If you pay $15,000 in taxes (just a random number,
    ymmv) $200 a year is a little over 1%. I think there are other items that we find much more questionable.

    If one were to view this as "just another line in the budget" rather than an unjust, immoral, inflationary,
    wealth transfer to the wealthy, tax-increasing, cost-raising unconstitutional pile of patronage I'd get
    your point. There are times when the government protects people from their bad decisions, this is
    an example of rewarding bad decisions.
