Rather Than Forgiving Student Debt, Hold the Education Establishment Accountable
- BY Eric Bledsoe
Congressional Democrats, spearheaded by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), have been rallying around their newest big government giveaway: student debt forgiveness. While their proposal has the benefit of grabbing headlines, what it lacks is a true, long-term solution that doesn’t ask hardworking people to foot the bill for other people’s debts.
Instead, the Left would do well to focus on transparency and accountability measures that will help prevent crushing student loan debt and ensure a better financial future for the next generation.
