On my back patio with a group of vaccinated but still socially distanced friends, we covered the usual gamut of complaints and concerns addressing our country. At some point one of us mentioned Senator Elizabeth Warren and other politicians advocating for the U.S. government to forgive student debt. That topic lit up with strong options from across the political spectrum of our group. Student debt forgiveness is a popular notion right now in some circles. Those circles seem to comprise primarily those saddled with debt they willingly took on as gamble against future earning (their own or their children’s), and those politicians who think this is a good strategy in support of their agendas.
