    I generally am supportive of it, even if the core problems of cost and loans is not really addressed itself, but it is a big deal for those getting some relief. As their economic power just went up. Not having to make at least some payments is nice for them.

    Politically, I imagine it will be attacked and so on but not sure that it matters that much. I was a little surprised on the timing.

    I honestly thought he would do nothing on the front so I mean from that point of view it is good.

LGDB: I largely agree. I'm 100% supportive of this. It's the smart political move and it's the moral thing. Even if you're a cynical actor here, the idea of sending a message to a very important electoral cohort that this party and this administration can deliver for you at a material level, at least somewhat. At least a bit more than the Republicans. It's a good play before mid terms.

My only criticism is that he should do more. Far far more... which Biden could do. It enunciates a very specific horizon of imagination, will, or scruples. Regardless, this exceeded my expectations and I think it's a legitimate feather in his cap.
