The news of the week concerns a number: $10,000.
It’s a well-chosen number, easy to remember. A solid amount of money, not too much, not too little. A number that any American can understand.
We may fairly say that the poorest among us cannot really conceive of $1 billion… And that the richest among us have no appreciation for the fact that $20 means something to some people. But rich and poor alike know what $10,000 is.
So, when the Biden-Harris regime proposes a $10,000 giveaway to current and former college students, as a payoff for student loans, everyone in America will have an opinion about it. People will either favor the move or oppose it; people will either think it’s too much or too little.
