An anti-debt organization is playing fairy godmother to Americans drowning in debt, swooping in and paying off bills randomly to protest “unjust” expenses.
Rolling Jubilee claims it is fighting against the oppression used by the 1 percent to control the 99 percent. But critics say its system of selecting debt to cancel fails to consider which bills are “unjust” and which might be well-earned. The unexpected payoff also could net borrowers more debt, in the form of a tax bill.
