do you not think that in order to get people to buy the ageing/dieing boomers houses they will start erasing the loans?
Possibly. They also may start balancing the budget.
There is a huge education industry out there with tremendous political pull. They are dependent on these loans. Start erasing balances, and they will believe it will lead to decreased student aid.
Hell, I don't think there should be federal loans for post secondary education. But there is no way I suggest to someone that they are likely to be forgiven or a debt Jubilee for them.
I would dare to suggest that the post secondary education industry is more politically connected than real estate and construction.
