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

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.

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. I explained to Sallie Mae, after I had to practically yell to get the woman to listen, that I was hire full time but because of medical conditions I could only work part time right now. 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 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.

Unfotunately, more and more people are deciding to not further their education today for the main reason that they cannot afford the tuition. The answer used to be student loans. But now it has been becoming increasingly harder to pay these loans off on a timely basis, while keeping up with interest charges and other bills. I am still paying off my orginal students loans I took out when I started college roughly 6 years ago. In that time, I had to quit school for 2 years in order to work so...

I am still paying off my orginal students loans I took out when I started college roughly 6 years ago. In that time, I had to quit school for 2 years in order to work so I could pay my bills. I now go to school full-time and work full-time so that I can complete my education and afford it at the same time. This is so hard to do and many are not as determined to stick with it. Since its such hard times, I have decided to not take on any more student loans for it just doesn't seem worth it in the end. My educational journey is slow going because of money issues and I am chipping away at the block, but loans just seem like a pit that sucks you in and spits you out worse for wear. We need some help here.

When the promise of an education goes unfulfilled because banks and ceo's and corporations have turned into plantation owners more intent on keeping labor enslaved... and bankruptcy is forbidden... then debt becomes the prison guard. Without the relief of bankruptcy... we have re-engaged indentured servitude and usury.

With unconscionable fee raises, bailouts, and home foreclosures, some had no choice if they wanted an education. Private loans interest rates are high. Maybe if the banks felt they could lose something, they would be better partners in America!
