Or perhaps PSLF could be maintained in a much more limited form (e.g. The government might occasionally offer to forgive small amounts of debt here or there to persuade qualified candidates to go into an understaffed but important occupation.).
I could absolutely get on board with simply paying social workers and such more money.

I agree with you that additional funding would help to encourage needed government employees (e.g., social workers). The problem with this program is that it appears to apply to almost all government employees and non-profit employees. I haven’t yet read a convincing argument about why people in private industry should pay additional taxes to subsidise the university educations of government and non-profit employees.
