Talk on the left is of "forgiving" student loan debt. The problem with such terminology is that the debt wouldn't be forgiven, it would just be paid by other people--you and me, instead of the people who incurred the debt.
Isn't it funny that, according to the left, people who are 18 (or older!) cannot know enough to make decisions about getting into debt and should be relieved of such burdens, but simultaneously we must listen to teenagers about global warming and perhaps even lower the voting age to 16? We should let children decide they want to cut off body parts to change sex/gender? The hypocrisy is stunning.
I have no interest in reading sob stories from people who willingly and voluntarily entered into debt. If some were actually swindled or defrauded, that would be a different story; but absent that presumably small proportion, the rest have no excuse. Adults live up to their responsibilities, they don't expect free rides from the taxpayers. They pay their debts.
And the politicians who talk of "forgiving" these student loans are guilty of nothing more than trying to buy votes with the public's money.
