    Got THAT right.
    We are not talking about an “entitlement” here, we are talking about a national investment that pays back profitably and has benefited the whole country.

    Only in the USA does this happen.

    @ahab

    The Republicans have been doing it for decades.

    Would student loans be so costly (and so numerous) if it weren’t for the dreaded for-profit so-called colleges and universities? A point to ponder………….

    Sorry, but such talk is considered “Un-American” in some quarters of the Free-Enterprise crowd.

    Good for you, Susan Craig.
    This was the most mean-spirited thing that has happened. Not the worst but the meanest!

    Riiiiigiht. Nationally, only about 47% of students graduate in 4 years.

    And you are giving an unsecured loan to 17-22 year old kids who have never worked a job in their lives and have no way to pay it back.

    You cannot get a car loan, mortgage, or personal loan without showing that you have income and a means to repay the loan…..yet we allow young children to get them all the time.

    And let us not forget how many college students dare to get a totally useless degree without any use in the real world.

    And lets not forget that the House of Representatives wanted to tie the interest rates permanently to indices…..yet the senate only wanted a 1 or 2 year extension of current rates.

    Same here. Graduated 10 years ago. Working 3 or 4 jobs to pay my own way through school. Not a single, solitary, isolated red cent in student loan debt while obtaining 3 undergraduate degrees.

    Yet people say it cannot be done. You cannot pay your way through school, you MUST take out loans to attend that $40,000 per year private school to get the same education that a $10,000 – $12,000 state school will give you while you live at home. And without debt.

    My only student loan debt was for Grad school which was paid off in 3 years.

    I have a question: Are the banks paying the politicians (in the form of campaign contributions, of course) to keep on squabbling?
