‘No Exceptions, No Questions Asked’: Progressives Propose Legislation Canceling All Student-Loan Debt

Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Ilhan Omar on Monday proposed legislation to cancel all federal and private student-loan debt, carried by about 45 million Americans.

Sanders’s proposal also calls for free tuition and fees at two- and four-year public colleges, and $1.3 billion a year to support students at historically black colleges and universities. Sanders, a Vermont Independent, proposed paying for the plan through taxes on Wall Street transactions in stocks, bonds, and derivatives.
