1. If we get rid of student debt can we also get rid of my credit card debt?

 

We bail out farmers and car manufacturers and maybe students. How do you get on the bail out train? People have to feel sorry for you for some reason or the other and you are bailed out.

3. Robert Reich is right, and he rocks! No other advanced nation

 

besides the US supports college tuition so high that students must take out loans and struggle for years to pay off exorbitant debt. It wasn't this way until changes made under Reagan in the 1980s.

As other countries know, and we used to know it's essential to make college and higher education affordable and supported by govt. revenue. Invest in the young generation, don't punish them; they're the future that will make society productive and strong.

4. The price tag for a college education is significant and the prospects to repay it before they

 

enjoy anything in life is also significant. Why would we do this? Why did we see university use business models? Terrible, and we must correct these wrongs.
