Elliott Harding of National Review proposes “a solution to the student-debt and social security crisis” The idea is to forgive some student load debt in return for considerable postponement in eligibility to receive social security benefits.
Rick Sincere, with the Libertarian Party of Virginia and in the past Gays and Lesbians of Individual Liberty, shared it today in his daily paper in Charlottesville.
The plan would set a limit of forgiveness of about $40000, but about 90% of students could discharge their debt.
