The reality is this country is heading down facist lane in a fast and furious fashion. The ruling class could not possibly care less about students. Stop being poilite about this and get into the friggin streets and show some spunk like we did in the sixties.

Yeah, remember thousands of us out there protesting against the Vietnam war, and now where is everyone? Sooner or later there is going to be chaos; people are getting fed up with seeing the corruption in our civil servants, CEO's paying minimum wage and raking in millions for themselves, etc., I could go on and on. People need to stop being SHEEP, do some critical thinking and start writing letters to local, state reps., just DO SOMETHING.

I AM FORCED TO STAY ON DISABILITY I HAVE 3-year INCOME MONITORING period. "THEY" will make me pay loan it back if I earn more than $12,000 annual. "They" keep me guessing on that one...MTC.

Perhaps the cause should be to bail out the student loans and the people suffering with their burden.

I have a problem with this because my daughter has a serious medical issue resulting from having tumors in her pancreas. She was denied SSI, and told to find a job. Ok what about these girls who can't keep their legs closed. They receive all kinds a government benefits because they have 5 children by 5 different men. The young adults who are trying to make a decent living by going to college should receive help instead of nasty phone calls, and harassing letters.

Something to think about....the families of the politicians that revoked our ability to file bankruptcy for student loans can borrow as much money as they want and NEVER has to pay back a dime! Grrr!

Sallies Mae does not respond to hardship requests. They need to be penalized. They are running me broke.
