I do sympathize with these children.

they are legally adults. These are the choices they made freely without coercion. They could have delayed college. Gone to a different school. A different major. A million other things.

Why should my tax dollars pay for their choices? Money is not free no matter how much the socialists want to pretend ot is. They can pay for the obligations they took on voluntarily. \


How about we give children who make bad educational choices the same opportunity we give the "job creators" who make bad business choices (i.e., the ability to discharge debts in bankruptcy)? This would also temper all the bad, for-profit colleges pedaling programs of dubious economic value. No one would lend to their students without a demonstrated record of success.

If a college is sending enough Medieval Literature majors to jobs in the insurance industry or sales positions with salaries high enough to repay the loans, I wouldn't have a problem lending to them.
