Half of college students believe their student loans will be forgiven after graduation, according to a recent poll. LendEDU, a private firm that connects students and their families with student loans and loan refinancing, conducted a survey that found 49.8 percent of students believe the government would forgive their student loans after graduation, the New York Post reported.
Despite what these students believe, there are actually a limited number of instances where the government can forgive student loans.

Exactly the problem is the government backed student loans. Normal business would never be competitive or customer driven if ran the same way.
Hey, that's how England got Australia settled.
....the other half will graduate,raise families,and go on to become part of a society
that is productive,peaceful,generous and oppose tyranny, socialism, and Marxism.
And do they still believe in the tooth fairy too?
They might be forgiven, but odds are the forgiven amount will be taxable, then they’ll get a nice tax bill. And those they won’t forgive.
What government can “forgive” depends on what President Bernie, President Ellison, or President Hillary get away with eight years from now. President Trump has to (1) change facts on the ground so that they have no opportunity to make that big a jump (and similarly no opportunity to grant citizenship to a swarm of illegals), and (2) change the public mood so that voters recognize the cost to our children of the massive federal debt and are unwilling to impose more debt on our children just because it seems like a nice thing to do for people who were reckless with their own spending.

Why? The snowflakes have plenty of money for “smartphones”, to donate to Planned Parenthood, to donate to the Muzzie run “ACLU”, to donate to the DNC, for “spring break”. “What the....?”
Half of them are right.
Half of first graders believe Santa comes down the chimney.
In fact, those people who advocate tweaking the Constitution of The United States are the ones who appeal to the segment of the population that is not well capitalized. Just take a look at the Democrat's propaganda narrative.
What's it all about?
And then there is Donald Trump. He caused so much trouble for the "deep state" because he had his own private wealth! He depended on no one! Trump was probably the first genuine "freeman" to run for the office, in decades.
I thought this 40 years ago.
Just paid interest for awhile.
I was wrong.
Our son attended some of the premier universities in the
world, including Oxford. By the time he got to Oxford, we
were about tapped out & he took on responsibility for his
He came out of it with a monster debt. I told him that
paying it off would be like eating an elephant - ONE BITE
AT A TIME. . but that paying his debts was the only
honorable thing to do.
Ever hear of the Dhimmocratic party?
Ya think they will EVER get back into power some day? (I do!)
Then—these kids are right.
Tough toenails for those who pay the bills.
I think they should sue their schools to get their money back. Make it a class action.
