Do you support canceling college loan debt?

Abby Finkenauer says if you do anything with student loan debt, it should be targeted, not blanket relief that would benefit people who make higher incomes. Mike Franken says setting aside student loans is a divisive issue, and the logistics are complicated, plus could result in college costs rising even more. Glenn Hurst says he fully supports paying off student loan debt, including paying back people who have already paid off loans, and community college or trade school should be free.
