Forgiving student loan debt would help people who had to take on student loan debt due to not having enough money to attend college without taking on student loan debt. These people are generally "not rich".

If you are rich you can pay off student loan debt without being burdened, or more often, since you are rich, have your tuition covered in full. Actual rich people are not clamoring for debt forgiveness because student loan debt does not affect them.

Working class people can't afford college tuition, which is why they take on student loan debt. They do not have money, they go into debt, they are burdened by the debt because they do not have money and cannot pay it off. I can't believe this is any temperature of a take.
