SHOULD STUDENT LOANS BE FORGIVEN

President Obama said in a political speech that he wants to forgive all student loan debits. The federal agencies and the private lenders stand to lose billions / trillions each. Does anyone have the right to give away tax payers money in a effort to solicit votes.

What about contracts that were signed by all parties?

What message does this send to students?
