The debt burden has to go. Adding it as a campaign plank makes sense, even if you (like Warren) have no intention of carrying through.
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has identified something else to finance with her proposed wealth tax: wiping out student debt and tuition at public colleges.
She says her proposal would benefit 95% of the 45 million Americans carrying student debt and wipe it out for 75% of them.
Warren’s plan would also cut off federal money from for-profit colleges, which she says “enrich themselves while targeting lower-income students, service members and students of color and leaving them saddled with debt.”
My plan would get rid of all student loan debt and all other debts too. And, it wouldn’t require any taxes on anyone. And, it would get rid of a bunch of the most despicable criminals on Earth. Too bad I’m not an American Indian like Lizzy.
