We all know about the bank bailouts but would the fed actually consider student loan bailouts? Student loan debt is higher than credit card debt and we have an entire generation of college grads making below $30k/year. This would certainly get Americans spending again. How much money does wiping out student loans cost the US per year? The way I see it, the tuition money has been spent and hounding young Americans for the next 2-3 decades would just hinder growth. I feel like the only one who feels like this.
