With two grandsons struggling to meet the cost of college educations, this is personally important and if we are to pull out of this slump nationwide, all should have at least that assurance!

In absence of scholarships and high education cost the students get the eduction loan without knowing the consequences of not repaying the loans. Please subsidize the education travels to curb the casualties

This will help our young get started in life.

My loans were discharged due to a disability. But, you still have to pay taxes, state and federal, on the full amount. My husband and I both owe these taxes. We are both over 65 and both disabled. We get about 1500 a month to live on and covers rent and utilities which continue to go up so I am paying $20 a month on those taxes. I will be paying that the rest of my life and still not get them paid. (they add interest and penalties).

I recently went into default after being out of college for 14 years. The reason? My loan holder expected me to pay 80% of my income for my student loans. And that was after applying for a so called income based plan. The interest on my loans is 8.25% and has never been any less and there is no chance of it ever dropping. These companies don't even try to help low income people because they know they don't have to. You are stuck no matter what. I guess maybe I should have paid for college...

At least you can get some help with those. People frivolously run up their credit cards and can get rid of the debt in bankruptcy but God forbid you should try to improve your life by going to college and then end up with a crappy paying job and no relief. At least forgive the extortionate interest on the loans and let people pay the principal.

a mistake on their part allowed me to borrow more monry than I should so now I can't afford my loan payments, and my household finances. not to say food for my home.

If they would just give us a break on the ridiculous interest, I could handle the actual loan much better. I got caught in that consolidation crap and didn't know I had a choice. They actually made it sound like I didn't have a choice in the matter at all. Somehow, 9,000 of actual borrowed money has turned into about 25k. I don't see how this is fair. And the credit rating hit I've taken has pretty much ruined my chances of ever having anything of my own, even a decent paying job.

My interest on my student loans is only 1.8 %.

My interest wasn't bad until the consolidation that I did, which I didn't understand what I was doing or I never would've agreed to it. For some reason, I didn't think that I had a choice.
