Sen. Warren, Rep. Pressley, of Massachusetts, continues to push for forgiveness of student loan debt

US Senator Elizabeth Warren and US Representative Ayanna Pressley, both of Massachusetts, are still calling for student loan debt forgiveness. Congressional lawmakers met with Massachusetts labor leaders on Wednesday for a roundtable on student loan debt at the Boston Teachers Union’s offices in Dorchester. Both Warren and Pressley described student loan debt as a labor and racial justice issue, while the senator went on to say that the debt has also created a social divide. “Higher education has become a world where if your parents can write a check for tuition, you’re going to graduate in pretty good shape. But if your parents can’t, then you’re caught in a debt hell,” Warren said. The Massachusetts Teachers Association, the state’s largest teachers’ union, also attended Wednesday’s roundtable with Warren and Pressley. The Biden administration has said in the past that it is limited in what it can do to forgive student loan debt without congressional approval.
