Elizabeth Warren is again pushing the White House to forgive billions of dollars in student loan debt.
PRESIDENT BIDEN: “I’m sure you heard about this, but the government’s made a deal with the banks, who loaned tens of billions of dollars to students who had been given loans. So we’re making it easier for you to pay those loans back. We created a website where people can evaluate their own position and see how they can repay those loans. Direct loans are now available so that you can borrow directly from the government at a much lower rate than before, which saves the typical borrower $25,000 over the life of their loan. The president decided that if you’re above a certain income level, and you’ve borrowed money on your student loans within the past six years, we are going to forgive part of your debt.”

Four million Americans have student loan debt in excess of $50,000, and millions more are struggling with smaller balances. This is a problem for our economy: Young people saddled with student loans have less to spend on new homes, cars, goods and services – goods and services that keep our economy growing and creating jobs.
