I am baffled about the student loan repayment and forgiveness plans the president made. I have read and researched the changes and they don't help with the financial burden for middle class and low income families. The relief programs only benefit individuals that can afford to actually pay them back such as medical doctors, dentists etc. I thought he was trying to truly make a difference but it seems like he did NOTHING with this topic to benefit the MIDDLE class that his two elections were so focused on! Most other changes for student loans are for NEW loans, what about the people drowning from old ones, do they not matter. One must be 100% disabled to qualify for forgiveness or dicharge. I am 80% service connected does that not count for anything? I was truly hoping this was an issue he would take seriously and do something to HELP the American people struggling with this debit. We are going into debit to attend school to help make our country stronger and globally competitive and in doing so we are financially drowning just to make this happen. This is so sad.
