On Monday, June 24, Sanders announced a political proposal calling on the federal government to completely cancel the student debt of Americans, writes Fox News with reference to The Washington Post. The package of proposals also includes the idea of ​​making education free at state universities, community colleges and colleges.

Reportedly, Sanders plans to pay all of the above to Wall Street, which he says will bring more than 10 trillions of dollars over 2 in years. The tax will focus on financial transactions: for example, 0,5-interest tax on operations with shares and 0,1-interest tax on bonds.

On Monday, Sanders joined Member of the House of Representatives Ilhan Omar, who submitted to the House of Law on the elimination of all student debt in the United States. Member of the House of Representatives Pramila Jayapal, co-chairman of the Progressive Assembly of the Congress, also took part in the proposal.

“This is a truly revolutionary proposal,” Sanders said in a statement. “In a generation hit hard by the 2008 Wall Street crash, this proposal forgives students' debts and ends the absurd life sentence of an entire generation for the crime of“ getting a college education. ”

Senator Elizabeth Warren, another candidate in the 2020 election of the year, announced in April a plan to cancel existing student loan debt for millions of Americans.

According to the Warren plan, each student’s debt will be reduced by 50 000 dollars if the household income is up to 100 000 dollars. More affluent families will also be eligible for significant debt reduction. It will not receive only those whose income is more than 250 000 dollars per year. Debt cancellation will be proportionate.

"For example, a person with a household income of $ 130 will receive a write-off of $ 000, and a person with a family income of $ 40 will receive $ 000," Warren wrote on her blog at the time.
