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.

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.

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!
