    Education is learning responsibility. It's hard work, but students can work their way through college without demanding someone else to pay.

    Without taking one single dime, I paid my way through college, and so has many others.

    We're becoming a nation of beggars.

    Those students and their families who are now being denied loans because of their proven track records of not being able to pay back loans need to get used to living in the real world... sooner, rather than later.

    Just because someone is going to college doesn't mean they should get a free pass from not being able to pay back a loan. Nor should they expect taxpayers to have to eat their bad debt. It's sad when people learn to live off of the system... especially before they even get out of school.
    Being an irresponsible student often leads to being an irresponsible adult afterwards, even if under the umbrella of their family. Some people in authority have finally started to recognize that. Consequently, they've finally started making these overly-easy-to-get loans more difficult to qualify for. That's the same thing these students will face when applying for a mortgage sometime after graduating. If you don't qualify, you don't get.

    It's all part of the real world that students should learn about... sooner, rather than later. Saving the taxpayers more unnecessary debt will then become an added bonus.
