According to the U.S. Department of Education, the average undergraduate student graduates with about $25,000 in student debt. Under the plan, the Education Department would provide up to $20,000 in debt cancellation to Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 in debt cancellation to non-Pell Grant recipients. Individuals would qualify if they make less than $125,000 a year, and married couples would qualify if their combined income is less than $250,000. There is nothing more unfair or unbiblical than transferring the debt of some to others without their consent. That is not Christianity. It is redistribution of wealth. It does not build strong societies, it divides. It does not produce equality or equity. It kills cultures and cripples societies. The free bread of the Romans merely made the poorest poorer and the dependent more dependent. It was not a hand-up. It was a hand-out. Redistribution of wealth inhibits hard work and honest gain. And worst of all, it teaches that there are no consequences for our actions if we choose to live irresponsibly, and that there is no value in working hard and paying what you owe.
