Unsurprising Survey Finds College Students Like Idea of Student Loan Debt Cancellation

Unsurprising Survey Finds College Students Like Idea of Student Loan Debt Cancellation

“The new data from YAF’s polling underscores the importance of facts over liberal talking points”

If you polled people with car loans and offered them debt cancellation, they would probably like the idea too.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Nearly 7 in 10 college students want taxpayers to eat their loans

A sizable portion of college students believe that Uncle Sam should “cancel” their school loans, and of those, 39% believe it should include debts of $50,000 to “all of it.”

But in a new Young America’s Foundation survey of high school and college students, that entitlement was tempered when it was pointed out that others who didn’t go to college would get stuck with the bill.

When asked if they felt it was unfair that noncollege students would have to pay the high tuition debt of those who did, college students, by a 47%-31% margin, and high schoolers, by a larger margin of 58%-21%, agreed.

“The new data from YAF’s polling underscores the importance of facts over liberal talking points,” said former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, president of Young America’s Foundation.

“Generation Z and millennials do hold some liberal views, but these findings highlight that many young people simply have not heard a differing viewpoint or been taught the facts. The rising generation values fairness, and YAF will continue to show young people that progressive ideas are — at their core — unfair and unjust,” he added.

Well, good! That way he’ll never do it again, right?!
(Yes, that’s sarcasm.)

You know that $50 I owed you? Biden cancelled it. Long live the Resistance!
