Economists don’t seem worried about the student loan payment resumption tanking the economy, but I don’t see how it doesn’t have at least some effect. There are, what, 25+ million people about to make substantial monthly payments they haven’t been making for three years? And most of these debt holders are middle- and upper-class people who are active spenders. You could argue some of these people will have budget flexibility to carry on pretty much as usual, but it’s quite a dice roll.
Also not buying that the new IDR plan will make a big difference. I know for me it’s barely lowered my payment. (Which is honestly pretty disappointing.)
Lauren Beobert said, "I'm human too" in response to being exposed as the trashy individual she is, yet she's never willing to give other people grace and she's judgey as fuck. Can't stand these people.
