Trump To Help Eliminate Student Debt For Disabled Veterans

Marilyn MonHoe

President Trump signed an executive order today that will make it easier for disabled veterans to receive student loan forgiveness.

Trump, who signed the memorandum following his speech at the American Veterans National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky, directed the federal government to have an “expedited” process for military veterans who are permanently and totally disabled to have their federal student loans discharged. The current student loan discharge program for disabled veterans is known as Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Discharge.

While student loan discharge for disabled veterans is not a new program, less than half of the nation’s 50,000 disabled veterans have received a student loan discharge due to a complicated application process. Today’s executive order hopes to simplify and expedite the process so that more disabled veterans can have their federal student loans discharged. The U.S. Department of Education says it plans to notify more than 25,000 eligible veterans about student loan discharge.

“Supporting and caring for those who have sacrificed much in service to our country is a priority for President Trump and the entire Administration,” U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said. “I appreciate the President’s strong leadership on this issue and his willingness to provide much-needed student loan relief. We will continue to prioritize the needs of our nation’s veterans and provide them the help and support they have earned and deserve.”

The good news is that, per the memorandum Trump signed today, disabled veterans will not owe any federal income taxes on discharged student loan debt. Trump is urging states also to absolve those veterans who receive student loan discharge of state income taxes.

Medicare/Medicaid are extremely popular (and necessary) socialist programs.

Their principle is that social programs is only good for special group of people who need it like disabled or wounded veterans for example. They dont have to support full on socialism to be principled. I mean even Bernie Sanders dont support full socialism so is he not principled?

I agree, I’m not sure what that has to do with my point?
