except that homes and cars are hard assets the banks can sell to mitigate the losses or rent out for income to lessen losses. student loans are not.
if you let people discharge their loans then a lot of lenders won't loan out as much money and we go back to the old way where you have to work full time to pay for school. which is how a lot of people who went 30-40 years ago paid for it. working full time, ROTC or GI Bill/Army College Fund.
i want to see some whiny millenials whine about having to join the army to pay for school
