I always see this as one of the poison pill for Warren and Sanders. In the US your university loan can go to 50k$ and even 100k$ which is frankly disgusting. They'll never be able to explain in a way to make sense to the majority of Americans that are not college educated and wouldn't get that "gift" or the college folks that already paid theirs. It also doesn't really fix the core issues with their system. Moreover people are also increasingly self-centered but also require very different kind of government services. Like If you take into account their messed up healthcare system then you have another issue if you want to be fair to everyone. Erase student debt but not healthcare debt?Oh, if Bernie (or Warren) wins the DNC AND gets Elected. Progressives are going to full on riot. Just the people who have Student Loans are going to be so pissed as they watch our neighbors to the south immediately become debt free meanwhile they are still stuck paying their monthly bills
Current US student debt is like 1 USD Trillion. Which is also the current yearly budget deficit there. Massive amount of money.
I'll be pleasantly surprised if it happens but I feel it's more or less selling dreams. Kind of happy I was born in Canada where Uni was affordable.
