I am $180k in debt. I have a PHD and am a tenured professor — my students are in the same boat, sinking in debt. I pay $1100/month in student loan debt, half of my rent. We MUST #CancelStudentDebt. Wall St got bailed out, what about us?! #bernie2020 @BernieSanders

Hum, not our fault. Maybe you should have gotten a degree in finance. I worked to help put myself through college and when I graduated I had zero debt, no sympathy here. Took a little longer, but hey I also retired early.

It is called take care of your self and planning!

PHD in what? Cultural dance? Maybe you should have thought about that before you took out your loan. I can't afford a Range Rover either.

Here’s an idea: all that $2200 you pay in rent every mo? Move. Put half that towards your student loans.

Not gonna feel sorry for a tenured professor who wants to keep up her standard of living but not have to pay back what was borrowed on her own free will.

You raise a good point.

We shouldn't let people who can't pay off their own debts go around teaching other people the same bad habits.

This is the problem with the left conditioning everyone to be a victim and to look to the gov't for a bailout.

Why not direct that anger at the schools for what they charge? That is the real crime. Schools do not need to be nearly as expensive as they are. You can trim a lot of fat from schools.

RE your second sentence, I definitely agree it's outrageous that while wages have remained relatively stagnant, tuition has increased about 4 billion percent. HOWEVER, I have absolutely no sympathy for people described in the OP.

Yea it's hard to have sympathy for someone like that but this goes so far beyond personal irresponsibility. The govt shouldn't create a button for people to press to destroy their lives for the benefit of school endowments.

Maybe, but the point is that it's a shitty analogy unless she is advocating for some sort of "debt cancellation" that involves paying back debt.

Agreed. You'll have a hard time racking up $200,000 in debt for a shitty degree if that were the case (unless the government fucks it up by forcing lenders to do shit like that).
