I think it is buying votes and heavily favors Ds since so few Rs go to college and none of the bubbas. The loan forgiveness guidelines are not party specific.

Round to Smokin' Joe.

Dems have a decided advantage among college grads (57-35) but so few Rs go to college is a bit much. I've had two ex-GFs in California, in the Bay Area, who were Republicans. One was a BS in Math and the other a UCLA BA and Masters in French.

When it came to politics, nothing, absolutely nothing, was going to change their minds; even things that were directly against their personal interest. I think it was more identity than thought. But they were not stupid.

Maybe the inflexibility is a different kind of stupid.

No, if it were capitalism the people who took out the loan and benefitted from the loan would be responsible for paying it off. Asking working Joe's to pay off someone else's loan is definitely not capitalism.
How exactly do "working Joes" pay off the student loan debt?.
Most "working Joes" don't actually pay any taxes except SS and wc taxes..... So.... Where's Joe the ass ripper paying off Buffy's loan?

A childhood friend tried to explain to me the real meaning of the defeated ex-President's comment about "the poorly educated". He said it was that they were under-educated, just that the education they received was "poor", as in substandard. He went on and on about how I was subjected to just such an education. I pointed out we went to the same schools. He gawped at me, mouth open.

A physical asset starts to depreciate the moment it is driven off the lot. It may allow the owner to complete many jobs over its lifespan, but does require maintenance, storage, transportation, fuel, and documentation costs. It is subject to damage, loss from weather and other natural phenomenon and can be stolen from the owner.

It does not have a transformative impact on the owners life which includes improved health outcomes, greatly increased earning potential, more stable family life patterns and reduced rate of imprisonment.

A college education does confer these benefits, and so should obviously be the choice of social programs seeking to save government costs in the future.

The ways Democrats save you money isn’t obvious unless you try thinking about it.

Thanks for helping us all understand this issue. We appreciate your playing the useful idiot this time.
Buying a backhoe is a business expense and tax deductible. If @Dog 2.0 wants to make tuition tax deductible, he may find some takers.

Actually, tuition is tax deductible. When I was putting my adultering whore ex wife through school for her masters, I was able to deduct the tuition.

The Tuition and Fees Deduction​

The deduction for tuition and fees expired on December 31, 2020. However, taxpayers who paid qualified tuition and fees in 2018, 2019 and 2020 could claim a maximum deduction of $4,000. The loss of this deduction highlights how useful a 529 college savings plan can be for saving money on college expenses.

Thanks for pointing out my error. My involvement was before 2020.

Democrats are criminals. Immigration, over taxation, fetish with global warming, completely screwing up education, race-baiting, identity politics, destroying the economy. F-ing brilliant.

No worries, it’s not like doggy will actually consider treating tuition like business investment. All he’s got are stupid memes stolen from others.

The U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a nationwide injunction against Biden’s student loan forgiveness program, but the votes are in.

Exactly. He knew he didn’t have the authority. No worries he will blame the GOP and the kool aid drinkers will lap it up.
