Democrats are taking a chance with this one as the midterms approach. Do they cancel student loan debt, essentially buying the votes of those who carry it? Or do they cancel it and risk a backlash from the working class whose taxes will go to pay off the degrees of college graduates? Most Democrats we’ve heard from seem to think the first option is more likely.

The NAACP says it’s time to cancel student loan debt, and as an example of someone who’d benefit from having their loan forgiven, they’ve picked Rep. Ilhan Omar, because that’s sure to go over well with everybody.

She’s got a crowd of, what, five people with her?

Judging from the replies, we’re all for the NAACP and everyone else making Omar the face of student debt cancelation. Please do this.
