This is a large amount of debt forgiveness,” Maher said.

“No, I totally agree. People are really upset right now,” said guest Kellyanne Conway. “By the way, that was never fair. You can’t make plumbers and plumbers pay the student loans of doctors and lawyers. That’s not fair. I want the government to try to help people who need help. I’m all for it, but he did it as a political game and we all know that.” (Related: ‘Gen Z is absolutely fed up’: College student breaks down support for Trump among young voters)

Despite Biden’s repeated attempts to use taxpayer money to cancel billions of dollars in student loan debt for millions of Americans, 2024 Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump Biden’s lead among young voters has declined significantly since the 2020 election cycle, as he continues to gain momentum among this demographic.
