We need to get the cost of college under control by eliminating government loans because colleges know they can charge as much as they want and will get paid. Most campuses are spending obscene amounts of money on nonsense and shit programs just because they can, and then use this to justify crazy tuitions. It's unsustainable. Until 40 years ago, most middle class people could afford college on their own. Now its impossible for almost anyone. Forgiving student loan debt doesn't solve that problem, it just emboldens the colleges.  They're not going to lose a dime.  As usual, it's going to be taxpayers footing the bill even more.
