Removing negative items from your credit report will help increase borrowers credit scores, but Americans and members of congress feels this is not enough. There has been a group protesters demanding all Federal Student Loans be canceled. While many Democrats support some form of student loan cancellation, there has not been a bipartisan support in Congress to make any significant moves on the issue since Biden took office.

Some members of congress feel’s President Biden should used executive actions to cancel student loan debt. Biden has been a lot pressure to reduce some of the country's $1.7 trillion in outstanding education debt. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., are pushing him to cancel $50,000 per borrower. It would be nice if President Biden agrees to cancel all Federal Student Loans that occur before March 2020. Which will significantly help lift the financial burden on Student Loan Borrowers.
