Dr. Cora Butler- Jones started this petition to Congressman Brendan Boyle and

So often healthcare staff are over looked for benefits created from a tax system we pay heftily into. We are disqualified for all of the recent pay outs to indigent, middle class, small business and even Corporations. This is a recommendation that we health care staff in higher tax brackets be seen for what we do not what we earn. We should be compensated for putting our lives at risk caring for America’s vulnerable during the coronavirus. I am requesting loan forgiveness like ten years off your loan for those of us who meet the higher income qualifications. Like MD’s, PhD’s, SW , Nurses , Respiratory therapists, etc.  Age should or could be a factor. There are currently loan forgiveness programs but they are cumbersome, restrictive and some will require you pay back ten years worth of loan before you are considered. Then there are only certain professions working with specific vulnerable populations that are eligible, like teachers. We were overlooked again. What about a 65 year old doctor out there trying to save lives! Who does not yet make a large salary because maybe they work in psychiatry which pays less. It is important for people who have gone further academically to become more qualified to make a difference be rewarded. Loan forgiveness is an easy way for congress to say thank you.
