Why accept any of that when you can vote for a politician who will make sure you have whatever you need, even if you don't want to work.

I think you're swinging between extremes here.
No, most people don't want to live in Manhattan or Hollywood or have the government give them everything. Most people aren't struggling to pay off $100K+ in loans because it's a Bachelors degree from an Ivy school in Disabled Women's studies.
They want the story line they've been sold to be true-work hard, go to school, get a degree and earn a comfortable wage to give your children a better start than you had.
Nowhere in that story were they told their interest rates would triple so Republicans can give the wealthy tax cuts while increasing the DoD budget by 50% to three quarters of a trillion dollars per year while the forgiveness programs are cut because the Secretary of Education is heavily invested in charter schools that want the pot of federal education money to flow into their pockets.
You seem rather out of touch with the average person who has an associates degree from the local CC or a bachelors from their nearest state university satellite campus in Business Admin, accounting, nursing or some other skill that's supposed to boost them up the ladder a bit above the entry level position they started at to help pay for the education.
Then honestly, you're probably the type of person whose loans should be forgiven.
You at least have some level of responsibility.
I think it's a reason mine shouldn't be.
My story is one of the way it should have worked for people.
I don't want forgiveness to happen not because I'm some bitter whiner pissed that they're not getting any and apparently expect a pat on the back and a reward for being responsible, but because it won't solve the problem.
