I've paid off my credit cards and all 3 credit scores are over 730 and I can't even get my own car loan due to my student debt. I work 2 jobs and I'm looking for a 3 one just to keep my head above water. I really need help. Millions of people need help.

Hi Alan, I was told by the Fed. Student Loans, Sallie Mae, that I did not qualify for IBR because I was only working part time.

She put my loans in defferment. This still doesn't help in the long run it merely delays the pain.

This should NEVER have been removed in the FIRST place! While Congress achieves very little, the things it does push through often do little for "the People" and more for large corporations!

I was not going to sign this petition as I have a fundamental belief that what you borrow you should repay. However, after reading the comments--particularly Stacia Kingston's comment--I realize that these loans have turned into predatory procedures against the recipients. The greed of these lending institutions cannot be overstated. I disagreed with the bank bailouts and now I disagree even more. The banks and lending institutions need to be held accountable for their disreputable...

I've been haunted by a student loan like a cancerous sore for twenty plus years, and it won't go away, no matter how much money I send them, enough is enough!

Our children are "drowning" in student loan debt! Please help them, like you've helped others.....

Student loan rules are more restrictive than the IRS, even they will negotiate a lower pay-off. There is something VERY wrong with the limitless powers of Sallie Mae and Direct Loans.

I saw that. I thought no one could top Bill Bennett, who pissed away $25 million, but she takes the cake, eats it, and gets 100 more.

I believe that this cause would get a lot more signatures for this petition if Causes didn't require "to access your public profile, friend list, email address, birthday, hometown, current city and your friends' current cities" to do so. There is no reason Causes should have/need all of this information. Though I really wanted to sign the petition, I would have passed on it if it hadn't been necessary to post this comment.

This is bad. The only things Congress require are your full name, address, and zip code. This is to prove you are in their district and you are actually a real person, not someone trying to "stuff the ballot" with fraudulent signatures.
