I want people to be able to go and get a proper schooling so that as they grow older they can be more successful and life a wealthy life. College tuition is at the high and about 44 million Americans have a total of $1.6 trillion in student loan debt, and these prices are getting higher. An example of college tuition prices raising is in 1971 California state was at the equivalent of $1000, now it is over $6000, that's about a 500% jump. People are putting off marriage, kids, home ownership, and retirement due to this inflation and this is causing paywalls for the middle class in America. But despite these numbers you often hear the idea that these kids wouldn't be in trouble if they just took responsibility, but they are trying to be responsible by investing in their education and they are trying to pay their loans back. Americans should not have to go bankrupt pursuing higher education and they should not be prayed upon by under regulated loan servicing companies. The way I want to fix this problem is if tax a education fee to the 1% who are wealthy, with their help they will be able to help pay off the loans of students who are struggling to pay their loans off themselves.
