"The Jewish community in Las Vegas, NM is trying to buy back their historic synagogue from the Catholic Church. The church originally gave them 60 days to raise the funds, but then abruptly shortened it to 30 days, leaving the community in a lurch.

Student debt politics
I hate this point that certain progressives are pushing that debt forgiveness was this unreasonable, third-rail, pie-in-the-sky demand that only became reality bc of pressure from the left.
First, what pressure do you mean. Second, no it wasn't. It was a mainstream Democratic Party thing for years. Even Chuck Schumer wanted to forgive like $50k.
Biden was willing to back away from it, but he was afraid of midterm losses.
