I fully agree with Countable member Brian! The Feds should get out of the student loan business! And Yes! Something must be done to force down tuition costs! College was a lot more affordable in the 1970. At U.W. Milwaukee in say 1975/76 I payed about $500 a semester and that was with a 17 credit course load! What happened! Actually our parents paid it too not the federal government! Thank God!
