I know I took out the loans and I should repay them and I’m normally fiscally conservative and against giving out free money. But I am hoping student loans get completely cancelled. It would greatly boost the economy if people do not have them hanging over their heads. However, forgiving what is currently there won’t help long term if the predatory practices around student loans aren’t fixed along with soaring tuition prices and salaries for administrators.

Current situation:
120k salary,
500k equities(retirement+taxable)
and roughly 30k cash checking plus upcoming sign on bonus of 20k in ~1.5 months
Rent: 1150
Debt:
Car loan: 34k
Student loans: 9k
CC debt on autopay: 3.5k for the month.
How should I deploy my capital?
1) Save till I have 50k in checking.
2) bring cash balance slowly to 10k over 3 months by paying off car loans.
3) Ignore all debt, make regular payments, and continue Dollar cost averaging into equities.
4) other, pls explain

The purpose of doing this is I want to use $10K of it, but want to prove that the $10K is from my contribution.

*Financial Discussion*
My fiancé and I have been planning our long term finances. We’re both currently saving for a down payment but she’s in law school so only working part time. Once she starts working as an attorney at her law firm, we discussed both of us maxing out our 401k to lower our taxable income for about 3 years. That way, when we start a family, our 401k can grow well on its own in case I’m the main provider (she’ll work part time for a couple years while kids are young). Thoughts?
