It's ok, he's going to forgive all that debt before he leaves office.

This is partially my fault.

I got 3 years and an incredibly manageable student loan debt out of it. I'm happy.

They're pointing to federal student loan debt. Of course it's going to increase when the lending moves from private banks to the U.S. government. It's says so in plain type in that article what happened.

quote:

“Under the DL program, the federal government essentially serves as the banker – it provides the loans to students and their families using federal capital (i.e., funds from the U.S. Treasury, and it owns the loans,” explained the Congressional Research Service.

During President George W. Bush’s time in office, the amount of outstanding loans increased from $67,979,000,000 in January of 2001 to $119,803,000,000 in January of 2009, an increase of 76 percent. This means that under President Obama the amount of federal direct student loans increased 509 percent more than under President Bush.

Direct-loan financing increased more than seven-fold over the last decade (2003-2013) with the amount of outstanding student loans standing at $90,795,000,000 in September of 2003.


While the amount of students taking on loans to pay for an education they may or may not need (a separate debate) can be painted as wasteful, at least now that the Fed is in control of the lending there's much less of a risk of a bubble burst/collapse that could send shockwaves across the greater economy a la the housing finance fiasco of 2008.

I guess personal responsibility only matters when you're bashing a perceived democrat, i.e., a welfare recipient.

THANKS OBAMA!

I mean, it was his fault the economy crashed; it's his fault employers aren't rehiring more of the same types of college-educated jobs that were lost instead of simply increasing the workload of their retained employees; it's his fault that Louisiana had to cut higher education expenses, forcing LSU to increase tuition.

CLEARLY this 463% is Obama's fault. I mean, HE IS the president! HE has control over ALL of these things! If the guy can increase gas prices up to $4.00 (thankfullythe market corrected his mistakes and we are now seeing under $3/gal), then he can surely reduce the student loan debt!

What a joke. IMPEACHMENT!!!

You can raise your ceiling by working too. Difference is I'm making a lot of money while I'm raising my ceiling.

The prerequisite for that certification took 3 years. I'm satisfied with my decision.

Cause ya know, everyone should live their life EXACTLY LIKE YOU. Your life is the only surefire way of making it in this world. Personal desires, interests, talents, none of those things matter. People shouldn't go to college to pursue a field they're intersted in because POWERMAN didn't and he's doing well for himself.

GOOD ON YOU, POWERMAN! You such a
