拜登取消学生贷款债务计划的后果, 据专家介绍: '巨大的后果'

拜登在上个月底的新闻发布会上表示,他正在考虑取消 “一些” 学生贷款债务.

“我不考虑 $ 50,000 减债, but I am in the process of taking a hard look at whether or not there will be additional debt forgiveness,” 拜登说.

Former Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Holtz-Eaken said canceling student loan debt would do nothing to slow rising inflation in the United States.

That’ll produce the most inflation,” Holtz-Eaken told Fox News Digital. “If you forgive some of the debt, that’ll create a little more inflation. The least inflationary thing to do is to have people actually go back to paying their bills. That would take care of it.

Economist Nicholas Eberstadt told Fox News Digital at the Milken Institute 2022 Global Conference that amagical, universal debt reliefwould actually harm those it is intended to help.

We know already that would be a tremendously regressive transfer towards the well-off,” 他说.

Eberstadt noted there are provisions within current student loans for those in financial distress, but the broad idea ofwaving a magic wand… would have enormous unintended consequences.

Current director of the Congressional Budget Office Phillip Swagel conceded the current pause in student loan repayments has provided financial benefits for millions of people, but it has alsocreated uncertainty.

Will these payments resume? As the job market rebounded, there’s millions of people who have gained jobs, and yet are still not paying their loans,” 他说.

This action has created a gulf between those who paid their student loans, those who did not take out student loans for college, and those who did not go to college, Swagel said.

These sort of apparent horizontal inequities is probably an unintended consequence,” 他加了. “Different people are being treated differently in ways that might be difficult to explain.

During his presidential campaign, Biden supported erasing $ 10,000 in student debt for most borrowers, but has raised questions about his legal authority to do so via executive order. During a press briefing last week, press secretary Jen Psaki said an income cap for student loan forgiveness was under consideration.

Biden has extended the freeze on student loan payments through Aug. 31, citing the COVID-19 pandemic
