I love when someone making high six figures and driving a Tesla want's my family to pay off their debt.

We paid ours off years ago.

I want someone to ask if this is a onetime vote buy or if this will be an every two year thing?
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

And that sounds about like 4-6 years in the Ivy League...  The private schools near me are in the $50k/year range... And most of the kids are raving aholes.

I donít want them to pay it off.  We signed up for our student loans and are responsible to pay them back.  Not taxpayers dollars!

Apparently one of them has $500K in student debt. I would say, "What moron goes a half million dollars in to student loan debt?" except that their fiscal irresponsibility is likely going to be rewarded.
