Given the situation, the way the admin went about it seems right (though I wish Democrats didn't love means testing as much as they do)
Even if they put it at say 400k married it would make sense, but I don't know. I'd hate to make 130k in San Diego or somewhere and still miss out.
Politically it seems like same damage control (125k v 200k)
But my biggest question in all of this is...what happens to kids starting school this week? Or next year?
I think this is a great step...and much smarter than 100% forgiveness because that would have absolutely backfired...but the real issue is the system now and moving forward.
Having limits on paybacks is huge but I don't know if that goes far enough.
