Why spend $350 billion over ten years "'to make public colleges debt-free for students...'" when it can be done overnight with no cost at all?
Simply prohibit public colleges from accepting government loan money. Pay as you go. Bring back work/study campus jobs. Bring back academic merit scholarships. Accept loan money only if it's a private loan that the student (and/or his family) has legitimately qualified for. No government loans = no government loan debt = no problem.
This would also have the effect of drastically cutting down the number of people in college who really shouldn't be there -- and wouldn't that be grand! Just imagine the domino effects: entire "Studies" departments eliminated, grade inflation reversed, the concept of tenure entirety rethought....
Eh. A grrl can dream.
