Addressing student debt

“Addressing student debt,” Monterey Herald – May 4, 2022

Relief of student debt in outrageous. What about those with crushing medical bills, such as cancer patients, accident victims and seniors who need elder care? To name but a few. Cancer, illness, accidents and aging are not choices, student debt is. It is time that we recognize the notion that society is not responsible for people who willingly take on too much debt. Student or otherwise. We need to firmly place the responsibility for that debt on those who borrowed the money they owe. It is time we restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for their choices.
