Seems the whole country is in debt. To who? What will a nation wide
foreclosure going to look like?Go ahead Barry! Keep the printing
Back in the 16th century in Germany people were having hard times. The
government, who had created the problems, blamed witches. So the government,
instead of being the villains, became the saviors.Through student
loans, the government has driven up the cost of education. (It was
well-intentioned, but motives are only important in religion and in civics
results matter). Instead of apologizing and quietly trying to set things right,
the government's solution is to have more student loans to drive the price
of education up even higher so then they can save us by having even more student
loans and grants to drive . . . .Instead of making the problem
worse, think and come up with a solution. For starters, don't let colleges
take out a 10% cut for processing the student loan paperwork. That is a
kickback and encourages colleges to force students to take on even more debt.
In my family it's 5 out of 5.
oh bomb ah will take care of it, why worry?
Teka, sorry but colleges get nothing for processing loan paperwork. They have
not been permitted to charge any fee for 25 years.
Obama will pay for education along with health care ... no problem. We have
money to burn baby!!!!
As a current student i would tell new students to think about taking some time
before college and save up their money. There are plenty of trades that a person
could do for a year to save up money for school. I got my CDL and drove truck
for 8 months before shcool and I have done that every summer since then. I have
been able to pay for school, rent, car repairs and all my other expenses. It is
a good feeling not having loans to pay off.There are good jobs that
students can do to make good money. But I think many students are not willing to
do the jobs.
