What if there were a way to pay for college that didn’t boost federal debt or further burden taxpayers? In this op ed, Marguerite Roza proposes that the federal government offer $10,000 each year (up to four years/$40,000) to students to pay for college — or to pay off their student loan debt — in exchange for postponing (by the same number of years) the age they become eligible for Social Security and Medicare benefits.
