Give strained student loan borrowers their fresh start

President Biden intends to take executive action to forgive $10,000 in federal student loans per borrower. Progressives want more — $50,000 in relief per borrower. Critics argue that loan forgiveness spends up to $1 trillion to help high earners at the top more than those struggling at the bottom. The progressives and the critics are both right. Financially strapped borrowers need more than $10,000 in relief while many who would benefit from blanket loan cancellation earn enough to relatively easily repay their student loans.

It’s experienced hiccups over the years, but the groundwork for McLean’s Community Business Center (CBC) is advancing.

Supervisor John Foust (D-Dranesville), who outlined a CBC study at a Feb. 20 virtual open house, said he was impressed by the consensus achieved.

“Like you might expect, there was not unanimous agreement, but in my experience in this business, it was as close as you can get,” Foust said. “There was an amazing amount of agreement amongst those who participated on what we really need to do: Make McLean work for everybody.”

McLean leaders earlier pinned hopes on a “Main Street McLean” mixed-use concept that would have redeveloped areas near the Giant Food shopping center. But the developer, McLean Properties, in June 2017 opted not to pursue the initiative.

The company in 2008 also was
