Utah leader says student loan forgiveness plan will hurt everybody
SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Spencer Cox was among 22 governors around the country who signed a joint letter asking the Biden Administration to immediately withdraw the student loan debt forgiveness plan.
The plan would cost taxpayers $2,000 each.
Utah Sen. Mike McKell (R-Spanish Fork) told Dave and Dujanovic on Thursday that the plan hurts everybody.
“The impact is much, much broader than that,” McKell said. “It’s people like you and I who may have paid back our student loans. It’s those individuals who went to tech school that didn’t take out a student loan, took a different path. That’s who the impact is really going hit the hardest overall.”
