As Democrats go all-out to woo affluent, college-educated suburbanites, President Biden is being pushed to extend the freeze on student-loan payments. But those with the highest college debt tend to be the nation’s highest earners. NY Post photo composite

The people who have college loans to pay back are, on average, pretty well-off. That’s no surprise: Only one in three working-age Americans are college graduates, and college graduates earn more money than people who have only high-school diplomas. So do people who go to college but don’t get a degree. College-loan forgiveness is first and foremost a government handout to people who have higher-than-average incomes.
