5. A big student loan bailout for borrowers would really jumpstart the economy.

It would be a big boost like what all our favorite economists say we need.

Krugman, Stiglitz & Reich isn't it them who are saying we need a big demand-side boost?

Forgive student debt to usher in a new era of American prosperity.

Isn't going to happen while the government is so cozy with Wall St. and the banks . We need to start electing better governments next time.

But it's like we don't really have too many choices when the election comes up. I feel like it's not fair that so many good mainstream ideas are considered inconceivable in our political system just because big money special interests run the government with bought politicians from the two major political parties.
