Not sure why this isn't getting more play. Colleges and Universities are basically taking advantage of the poorer students and writing off their losses regularly while breaking down students who have to pay and pay and pay after graduating. THere is a trememdous discrepency here. SO?
It's not just higher education taking advantage: it is also Sallie Mae, the US govt., the collection agencies, the "credit repair" people, the lenders, the sub-lenders, the people that collections hire to find debtors, and the list goes on and on
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.
I agree - tell me where to start, Joe! We are organizing... want to help?
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.
You need to do something about the kids who are trying to better themselves instead of these girls who's having babies and receiving help for having no morals
Lets do this
I agree that this is another way the wealthy can control us.
You borrowed the money, you spent the money, you should pay it back.
I suggest you educate yourself: http://www.studentloanjustice.org/argument.htm . Spouting advice that everyone agrees with does nothing to solve our problem.
Circumstances beyond my control interfered with my ability to pay back my loans. Research the evidence before making ignorant judgments.
The bankruptcy law was rewritten by Bush, and the republicans in 2005 to benefit credit card companies, and other corporations, a company can declare bankruptcy, and void all union contracts etc, but a common person cannot write off a student loan.
how about some help for those of us caught in the bank's student loan rip off schemes!!!!!!
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.
166k in debt but my credit score is 733. I can get a credit card at 0% but not my student loans.
