    You're wasting your time responding to Soho.

    Maybe so, but Obama expanded on the program, not curtail it or fix it. Just because this started under his predecessor doesn't mean he can't correct a few things. Obama has spent 8 years doing nothing but make a bad situation worse. He never once made something better. From his domestic policy to foreign policy, he's been a sorry excuse of a leader. It's like he took control of the Titanic knowing it hit the iceberg but then he turns around and hits the fricking iceberg again and points fingers at the prior Captain and say "He started it."

    Well, the private sector needs this debt "written off" so that freed borrowers can spend more of their newfound disposable income and bolster the economy beginning November 1 2017! :p

    @orangeblueorangeblue, is one of the least partisan posters here, with a very good understanding of economics....i have learned much from his posts

    would be a mistake to paint him as you have done..

    Dude, you are getting smoked, it's pretty apparent from your responses. Try not to bring a knife to gun fight next time. Soh clearly knows his sh1$.

    Let me see if I can simply this for you:

    If I say Tootsie Rolls used to be $.05 and now they're $1, that means nothing. Normalizing the dollar and relative costs is the missing piece.

    If you think pointing that out is "getting smoked" then perhaps you went to a better econ and biz school than I did, but more likely you just want to score some points yourself. :)
