New Bill Would Forgive Student Debt for Residents of Washington DC

New Bill Would Forgive Student Debt for Residents of Washington DC

“This is something we need to address.”

It’s like the Hunger Games. People who live in the city of power get special perks.

The Daily Caller reports:

Student Loan Debt Could Be Forgiven For DC Residents

Up to five years of student loan debt could be forgiven for Washington, D.C. residents, if a bill introduced Tuesday by a council member is passed.

David Grosso, an Independent D.C. council member, proposed that the city pay for five years of worth of loan payments for residents who either individually make less than $75,000 a year or, with their spouse, make less than $95,000 per year, reported The Washington Post.

“I’ve heard from teachers about how hard it is for them to make ends meet because they’re carrying this debt,” Grosso, the Education Committee chairman, told WaPo. “This is something we need to address.”

The councilman intends to manage the program’s expense by compelling participants to enlist in a government income-driven repayment plan.

“We’re making a big push for day-care workers to go back to school,” said Grosso. “I’m trying to make sure they know that we’ve got their back when they complete their education, so they can continue to live in [D.C.] regardless of the debt they might owe.”

    Hey, its the Democrat Party’s way of keeping their DC Slaves – promise them anything, as long as you can keep them enslaved.

    David Grosso’s proposal is discriminatory.

The city can do whatever the residents of it want to do with their money. But don’t go asking Uncle Sam for a bailout when you’re dead broke.

Wait, wait, wait…… you’re pushing people to go into debt to go to school but then you’re going to pay it for them eventually? WTH????????

Santa Claus on the Christmas Parade float throwing out handfuls of candy to all the eager, grabbing kiddos.

Working definition of Democrats/Liberals.

And the adults (e.g., everyone else) get the shaft of having to pay the cost.

Bottom line definition of our gummint as a whole, sad but true.

just as long as Uncle Sap doesn’t have to pay the nut, let ’em do it.
how much does DC get from the Feds to pay their bills ?

If you thought college was outrageously expensive, wait until students can get their loan debt forgiven. Tuition will go through the roof.

“We’re making a big push for day-care workers to go back to school,”

Ahhh, what school exactly? Is this just a roundabout way to shovel government money to teacher’s unions?
