The College For All legislation doesn’t just look forward (making all public colleges and universities tuition free), it also looks backwards by cancelling all $1.7 trillion dollars of existing student debt, including your private student loans. So this directly benefits you, even as it benefits all of us since we all benefit when other people in our society get an education and can reach their full potential.
After all, education is a public good.
If you want to DM me the notification that Sallie Mae sent about raising your payment I can take a look at it and see if there is anything that can be done. There may or may not be. We’d need to look at the actual paperwork to tell. But even if there can’t be anything to reduce your payment now, winning College For All does one better, it just eliminates this debt and all other student debt! It’s worth fighting for!
