What needs to be addressed is the high cost of a college education and all the waste involved. Just look at JCC and the programs which bring no value to the student. Also, if educators were truly worried about the students they would get ride of the degree programs which are worth less then the paper the diploma is written on unless you can find a job at a university teaching it to others. This would bring student debt under control by the student not having to pay for useless services. The problem is that education is a business that looks out for itself and their employees first not its costumers..

Don't put words into my mouth you old goat!

The Left puts the weakest into subjugation and want to keep them there by by poisoning them with the theory that they can have anything they want. The reality is that they can't. They then are put into a cycle of poverty and government dependence in perpetuity.

Which is most cruel Copper?

Your dedication to theory over reality would shame the most ardent Marxist, Carlaw. "People shouldn't be so stupid; the weak deserve to be trampled." That's your answer?

How many Americans are dumber than dirt? If you can't figure out what you can sustain, then you can't expect to keep it.

Selling adjustable rate loans to naive, powerless teenagers should be criminal. Creative financing helped sustain the housing bubble, but how many Americans are now underwater on their mortgage because that bubble burst? How many Americans lost their homes because they couldn't keep up with the increased payments they were convinced they'd be able to afford a few years out? And now Republicans want to bring this to student loans? Congressman Reed's proposal is not about getting students into college and career-ready: it's about fleecing them.

I like this writer..the facts were laid out well. I question any set of parent's mental stability when there are 12 children... but this person apparently did ok!

"Probably because you all know nothing about economics.."

You can add to that: history, philosophy, religion, sociology, psychology, math, science...

No one wants to debate the impact of adjustable rates on students loans, or anything else of substance? Anyone going to call me a "libtard?"

Are you kidding? My post referenced information about the bill not even contained in the article, and you dolts accuse me of posting without reading? How completely valueless your comments are. Not one person took up the specifics of this issue, as I did, all the rest of you did is call me names. How pathetic. Probably because you all know nothing about economics, it's best you just stay silent and keep to your schoolyard taunts.

"Copper the goat doesn't. Just sees any conservatives or non leftwing name and comes out with his same old tired lame comments."

Can easily (and ironically) change this to read:

"Lonerrider doesn't. Just sees any liberal or non rightwing name and comes out with his same old tired lame comments."

Same as it ever was.

Just a question - do the regular comment posters actually read the stories before commenting, or do tghey just post the drivel they have memorized, regardless of the story.

Gee. a lying ********* Congressman. Let me put on my big surprised face. Now, a word about pegging loans to "market rates" and how that caused the housing bubble, not to mention mention Democrats insistence that the rate be 1% above 10 year T-notes, not 2.5 and not allow the rate to float up over the life of the loan, as Republicans do. Those of you who pay attention may remember the Republican plan is the exact same one that led to the burst housing bubble and the "Obama" recession.
