Response to RedCappedBandit (Reply #17)

19. I have a master's degree and teach college, but couldn't make consistent payments for first 10+ yrs

after finishing grad school, in part because none of my job's offered health insurance, so I paid medical out of pocket (which was still cheaper than insurance).

During that time, interest doubled my loans from $50K to over $100K.

Now I'm making less than interest only payments and banking on public service loan forgiveness--but who knows if that will survive if Republicans ever retake the White House.
