About "PLUS Loans (NEG)"
The AFF plan abolishes federal Parent PLUS loans. These are loans made directly by the US Dept of Education to parents of college students. Plan does not change “graduate student” PLUS loans, so be careful when citing evidence dealing with “PLUS Loans” to be sure it applies to “Parent” loans.
PLUS loans are maligned under the theory that they are deceptively getting parents into huge and unnecessary debt to pay for their children’s education. But in reality, Parent PLUS loans are a vital part of the college education process. Many students would not be able to attend college without them, leaving them without the life-long benefits of a college degree. And there are numerous flexible options and repayment strategies, with exceptions for hardship and various circumstances, that make PLUS loans better than any of the other options available.
