Elizabeth Warren wants to cancel millions of dollars in school debt from current loan holders and then go completely free college. Have the families that have over $50million cover the costs.

How does that make any sense? What if you paid your way and paid your loan off like a responsible person? What about going into the military for schooling AND helping your country? What if my child does not want to go to college - do we get the $100K to invest in their life? What if they wanted to do a trade school instead? Or god forbid they go to junior college to save money and figure out what they really want to do? Is'nt part of raising a family including some form of education and trying to raise a responsible person of society? Then who covers the costs of professors and staff that make $500-1.5 million per year and at some point is that part of the problem?

Now if you want to talk about some version of free/discounted junior college/trade schools I am all ears. We have a massive trade/blue collar deficit in this country and all signs that its going to be a big long term problem. So instead of getting rid of auto/wood shop/metal working, etc in high school, lets figure out how to work with trade schools connected with high schools, to give kids a career that does have to include $100K and college.

This is not a political issue - this is an american issue. Quality of education in on the downslide, the cost is on the up, and we continue to pay our youth teachers below scale.
