This is a message board for a public university, 50-75% of the people here had help from the state to pay for their college.

Feels like a lot of misdirected frustration here. People upset about the loan forgiveness maybe should really direct their anger at what seems to be an increasingly broken education system.

Duke, let's be honest, you're just trying to justify to yourself to vote for DeSantis. You keep side stepping the questions about his march towards authoritarianism and ignoring his homophobic attacks.

^^ what have i sidestepped?

I don’t want to vote for him and currently have no plans to. All I’m saying is that I am not yet prepared to say “no way” until I see what that election shapes up to be. There are, however, red lines. That doesn’t mean I have no problem with anything short of any red lines.

And in any case, this has nothing to do with that.

It’s like you guys somehow can’t resolve that I hate Trumpism with a fire that I expect even many liberals don’t match, but I’m still center-right and don’t approve of bullshit leftist wealth redistribution and money wasting.

How is his current actions aren't a redline for you?

Also, I'm very clear that this isn't ideal policy, so no idea what you're talking about.

Other than people who only owe 10-20k is anybody entirely happy about this? I was supposed to have my loans completely cancelled after 10 years of teaching until Betsy Devos changed a lot of the rules, so I'm still stuck with a really high balance- even after getting pell grants during my undergrad.

I think it's a step in the right direction, but as someone pointed out, the anger about it being 'fair' is sort of a distraction from the core of the issue: college tuition is out of control, it has been for years, and something needs to be done because it's a huge problem that's not going to go away.

Although debt cancellation will also have an inflationary effect, not a big one but it will be there

Honestly, how? Student loan payback was already paused. It's not like most of these people had 10k in the bank waiting to spend it on loans

I mean, it's mostly common sense that shouldn't need a source, but sure

So those that received the 10k now have 10k more “to spend” so now things get more expensive because demand goes up. Like I said the inflationary affect is low but it is inflationary.

Does anyone know if the cancellation is considered taxable? I’d assume so since it was done outside of a tax code change

Mate, you're not answering the question.

Student loan repayment was already paused, what proof do you have that these people are suddenly going to spend 10k on the economy? If you're 40k in debt, not paying it back, and suddenly it goes to 30k in debt...where are they spending money?

You back up your point now

You’re correct, since the payments are currently paused the inflationary affect won’t be felt until after the payments resume. Your data shows that 90% are making payments on time so if that 90% has their payment go from 500/month to 400/month they will actually have 100 extra per month (which causes inflation) when they start repaying. Of course restarting the payments will have a pretty healthy deflationary affect (which is why Biden delayed until after the election again).

And that also makes the assumption that people won't make the same payment to pay off their loan quicker.

Even if there was an inflationary impact, it won't be felt for some time and it would likely be statistically insignificance. It's not like you're writing a check for 10k to people

Cfnc said payment pause for past 2+ years didn’t apply to them. Some say this may not apply either. Isn’t cfnc like federal money?

StTexan, I got the same script from CFNC.

Then I got on a chat with DoED, and they said that I had federal loans, thus I applied to the announcement.

So when you fill out your FAFSA, you are assigned to a servicer for the loan - you have no choice. I, just like you, was assigned to CFNC. Their loans are federally funded but not federally owned, but seems like, coming from the horses mouth (DoED), we will be able to claim forgiveness.

StTexan, I don't see how we have any choice but to keep paying until we've heard otherwise.

I also heard that you can call and have all of the payments they received during covid refunded. Not sure if that applies to CFNC or not.
