If your household income is less than $100,000, you could have up to $50,000 of your debt eliminated, while those making less than $250,00 could have smaller amounts cut. Those who make more than $250,000 wouldn't be off the hook for their bills.

A $1.25 trillion plan

Warren's plan also includes free undergrad tuition at public colleges, which could cost about $1.25 trillion over 10 years.

She would pay for this by using her proposed tax cut on the ultra-rich. The debt forgiveness would also be tapered for those with high incomes, though the specifics aren't laid out in Buzzfeed's story.
