Finally, President Donald Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos, has argued that it would be unfair to those who already paid off their debt or never went to college to cancel student loans. But this completely misses the point that society works for the collective good. I have chosen not to have children, but I pay taxes to fund children’s nutrition programs, pre-K education and K-12 schools. Should I ask the government to refund my money? Of course not, because I am proudly contributing to making society better for everyone.
