S02E17 – Biden’s student loan plan, racism at BYU volleyball game, and the direction of America

In S02E17 of Finding Common Battle Grounds, we tackle three questions. First up, we discuss whether Biden’s plan to forgive $10k in student loan debt ($20k for Pell Grant recipients) makes sense. We agree that it doesn’t solve the problem and is a political move to gain favor with specific voters. We then discuss the recent incident of racist behavior toward a black Duke volleyball player at BYU. There is a lot of disagreement here, including over whether it even happened. Finally, we discuss recent polling data suggesting close to 80% of Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction. We agree that this is mostly tied to inflation and the cost of gas/energy.
