Do you agree with me that student loans should be abolished?

Taking out a big loan (thousands of dollars) ---- under the assumption that:

--- you will graduate

and

--- you will find a decent-paying job after you graduate

Newsflash: It might not pan out that way!

and these loans can't be discharged in bankruptcy.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    If loans were abolished, where would you get the money to go to college?

    Think about that.

    What should happen is that tuition should be lower.

    There are roughly 250 million grown-ups in the U.S. Of this aggregate, just 45 million are understudy loan borrowers. While that number is huge, it's under 20% of the absolute grown-up populace. Pardoning understudy loan obligation absolutely would profit these people. Nonetheless, in excess of 200 million grown-up Americans presently don't have, or never had, understudy loan obligation. Is it reasonable for drop understudy loans for this sub-segment of the populace, while most of the populace (who may confront other, significant monetary difficulties) don't get proportionate monetary help? Numerous government citizens might not have any desire to finance the expense of educational loan obligation retraction, which could cost almost $400 billion, while they get no monetary advantage.

    Should car loans be abolished because some people buy Lambourghinis they cannot afford?  There is plenty of affordable education out there, but people insist on buying the luxury brand they cannot afford.  Stupid people need to feel the repercussions of their stupidity.

    NO, because college would become something that is only available to the wealthiest 1% of Americans. And that's WRONG, no matter what. The student loan system needs to be REFORMED, not abolished outright. And the way to achieve that is by educating students and parents about how the system works and what they should and shouldn't do.

    No, because you have people who could've went to a college in their state for $25k, instead of going out of state for $100k.  The same people who complain about this are buying $8 coffees at starbucks every day.  

  • It's amazing the amount of dumb that comes in the way of questions here.. This one is laughable..

    Since nobody forced you to sign a loan obligation, which is no different than a mortgage or car loan, you aren't going to get people to agree with that.
