senate Bill S. Joint Res. 56

Should Congress Overturn the Trump Admin’s Changes to the Student Borrower Loan Forgiveness Rule?

Argument in favor

The Trump administration’s changes to the borrower defense rule will make it harder for student loan borrowers to obtain loan forgiveness when higher education institutions engage in fraudulent behavior. By blocking the regulatory changes proposed by the Education Dept. and Secretary DeVos, this bill would restore the protections of the Obama era borrower defense rule.

Yes. Keep the program as it was. Allow people who were defrauded before the three year timeline the opportunity to recover from fraudulent practices. I do not trust most trumpublican changes because if you dig deep enough you will find someone making money or protecting wealth to the disadvantage of the general population.

Yes, you should overturn this corrupt administration’s changes to the borrower defense rule that make it harder for student loan borrowers to obtain loan forgiveness when higher education institutions, like tRump University, engage in fraudulent behavior. By blocking the regulatory changes proposed by the Education Dept., under Secretary DeVos (whose family business is student loan debts!) this bill would restore the protections of the Obama era borrower defense rule and protect borrowers.

Argument opposed

The Trump administration’s new regulation would revise the borrower defense rule in a way that gives student borrowers a reasonable chance to file for and obtain loan forgiveness when higher education institutions defraud them or engage in illegal conduct, and also protect taxpayers by ensuring loans are repaid when conditions merit. Congress shouldn’t overturn the new rule.

Thank you my conservative brothers and sisters. I believe the Countable platform to be profoundly biased in favor of liberal ideas and opinions. Worse yet - it is ineffective for fostering discussion. I am asking Countable to delete my account. Spend your energy - like any other resource - to get the best return on your investment. Countable is not it.

Anything fraudulent should be refundable. Betsy DeVos and Trump make a terrible duo. Kind of the perfect storm. Neither of them care about students from poor and minority families, and of course both were born to rich families. Trump is a crook and psychopathic malignant narcissist who should never have been elected--oh wait--he wasn't--he lost the popular vote. Devos is just evil and should be sent to some evil place that best suit her. Somewhere hot. Very hot.

Student and parents sign on the line. Should have took household finance class in high school. I agree college degrees are needed but colleges forgot education and making “All Inclusive” resorts instead of education. Nope you sign on the line and agree with these expensive schools, you pay. Even some apprenticeships, you fail or drop out you pay back any expenses occurred by the company. No different. The only way to change from these elite schools is to apply at smaller schools. I have to agree with our present administration, you sign, you pay. No forgiveness.

    If we can afford to bail out people like Trump in the banking, housing, and automotive industry, there is no reason we cannot afford to give those in public or non-profit service a break. That’s ludicrous.

    How about we govern for the people rather than for Trump and his wealthy cronies? Overturn this law and come up with an actual solution to the student loan problem.

    I am still dismayed that the usury laws repealed by a he Reagan Administration of the 1990’s has been readdressed during the past 4 Recessions. This bill is but a small bandaid for a much broader problem of impoverishing those investing their time and efforts to become active tax paying citizens only to find the economy has no job or career with benefits to allow them to pay for their own home and safety, let alone the interest on their student loans which accrued upon distribution!

    Deception should never be rewarded. The entire issue of student loan forgiveness needs to be put on the table for acceptable solutions.

    Keep it just as it is. It’s helping people!! Trump screws with everything and messes everything up. Trump’s changes to the borrower defense rule is going to make it harder for student loan borrowers to obtain loan forgiveness when ’fraud’ universities like Trump University engage in fraudulent behavior. Blocking those regulatory changes from DeVos & the non-Education Dept., this bill would restore the protections for borrower. Problem I can sed is Trump will never sign it.

    People shouldn’t suffer and have their lives put on hold or constantly with a vice grip because the feds wanna screw the american people over with ridiculous loan structures and percentages of interest and all in between. Yes you have to pay what you agreed to but not every university is 100% transparent and reliable when it comes to actual caring about one’s education and their well being during such time of their lives. You brag about the economy and job additions but people are suffering and losing homes and going broke because of student loans and such “‘new rule”. STOP CHANGING EVERY LITTLE THING JUST BECAUSE YOU PERSONALLY AND SUBJECTIVELY DONT LIKE IT. CERTAIN STATUES AND RULES AND LAWS WERE IMPLEMENTED FOR A REASON.

    I know it won’t mean anything to you ( gardner) but you have no idea the pressure put on young people today who are drowning in a sea of student debt. Trumpelforeskin delights in other people’s pain and agony so he is delighted in being able to push this forward. I often wonder what or who removed this man’s soul. 💙💙💙💙 And while we are on the subject....... have Betsy Wetsy DeVos be held ACCOUNTABLE for defying a court order for the past year!!!!! And remove this incompetent bimbo from office.

    Anytime I see an opportunity to see something ImPOTUS has done overturned I think great. But then this doesn’t concern me. I’ve already paid off my daughter’s debt. So I amend, anytime I see an opportunity to overturn something ImPOTUS has done and Screwover Betsy DeVos at the same time, I am all for it!

    Citizen students deserve protection from fraudulent institutions, unable to deliver promised credentials, but seeking only to bilk them of their money.

    Give those defrauded the opportunity to recover as before Trumpian changes. Based on history, at the bottom of the Trump Administration changes are folks profiting off of those who were cheated.
