I don't see it as jealousy so much as ioittarirn at people who (a) feel they are entitled to something (i.e. higher education) that is (b) heavily subsidized by the taxpayer, but (c) take no responsibility for the personal choices that led to being up to the eyeballs in student loans.Out of high school, I had the grades and the test scores to go pretty much anywhere, but I chose Podunk State, because (1) it cost relatively little, and (b) they gave me a nominal scholarship/stipend that covered my living expenses. This ordinary education has never been a liability for me, not when I applied to grad programs, and not when I went to law school. It's not the government's job to absorb our errors in judgment. That said, I do think the student loan situation has become untenable. It is effectively a form of debtors' prison, and I have some sympathy for those who made sound choices, but still find themselves on the wrong side of student debt. One thing I'll never understand is why Congress can't change the laws to allow student loan debt to be discharged in bankruptcy. (I've been reading your posts, btw. I've just been too stressed out at work and home to leave comments, etc).
