And looks like we’ve got 4 more months of student debt pause, and then 10K off. And something with interest, but I’m not really clear on it and I think it only applies to Income Driven Repayment (IDR) plans.
Do I think Biden could have and should have done more? Hell, yes. But fuck, I’ll take it and keep yelling. (I will say that I am certain Elizabeth Warren would have had this done and dusted a year ago.)
In the past 5 years alone, I’ve paid $74,000 in taxes. I like to think I’m getting 10K back, and helping 6 other people. And even if I wasn’t eligible, I’d still be happy for other folks. I’ve been through a lot of shit in my life, and I don’t want others to have to go through that, cause I’m not a fucking monster.
My one big remaining question is how they are going to make sure that servicers apply the 10K in a manner that actually benefits the borrower the most.
I also find it hilarious that Nelnet has crashed, even if I do need to get into it and check something.
