Why would they do that? They’re lobbyist owned. Want to fix up our economy? Address these politicians that the lobbyists are bribing. Illegal bribery that effects legislation should be viewed as treason, the lobbyist and the politician taking the money/”gifts”
Until this problem comes out in the open, nothing will change, we’re going to only get worse while the 1% get it all.

Conservatards are toxic poison.

Rechard kk July 5, 2013 at 1:43 pm

Wonder why northern EU countries is ahead of us and China is beating us at our own game. USA is a laughing stock of a nation. War is affordable, bailling out Wall-street rich parasites are affordable but social security and medicare medicaid, free education are not. 

Rechard kk July 5, 2013 at 1:46 pm

In Aust, student loan from Government is “0.0000”, In most scandanavian countries, its literally free of charge to attend tertiary education. USA is becoming a third world country. Thanks to libetard and conservertard.

Why not our next President?

Snd you are certain that Warren is deaf and blind to listen to reason regarding drones, AIPAC, the war, CISPA, FISA, torture, Patriot Act, etc.?

I am sure that when she finds out that these are endorsed by tax evading war profiteers, there will be a different Warren that you try to portray her as.

Jake Preston July 5, 2013 at 3:26 pm

We need Elizabeth Warren for our next President!

Yea lets blow up college tuitions even more

Odd Sigve Tengesdal July 5, 2013 at 4:12 pm

In Norway we have interest freeze on student loans until we are done studying and get a job. And after that we pay 2.5-3.2% interest. So the loan does not increase wile we study unless we need more loans

Maybe the interest rate discount should come with an obligation to repay by rebuilding the infrastructure of the US.

CIGLV Creativity Inspiration Genius Learning Vision July 5, 2013 at 4:49 pm

What happens when you de-industrialize the US, giving advantage to competing nations like China, bailout big banks, wage expensive wars, and then double interest rates on a massive segment of a population of potential producers? Let’s not find out.

That was my point, if you could take your comment and send it to Pepsifx357 that would be great.

Marie Marr July 5, 2013 at 6:14 pm

Another crisis? When the banks got into trouble we bailed them out with our tax dollars. Yet you worry about students being unable to pay it back? Well, they don’t have an implicit guarantee from the taxpayers. Why are we bailing out our Banks with our tax dollars, but not our students?

Marie Marr July 5, 2013 at 6:52 pm

Its a better investment to put our money into the future of our young people. At least we get something productive back. What is the point of giving free money to the Big Banks to gamble with? What are they producing of worth? Wealth for a small handful of individuals, and to hell with the rest? It’s the equivalent of flushing money down the toilet. And these Big Banks hold so much of the country’s debt and wealth, including everyone’s retirement funds, that they imperil our entire economy.

Marie Marr July 5, 2013 at 7:41 pm

Then, the other alternative is to start funding our Public Colleges and Universities again…

Pepsifx357 July 5, 2013 at 8:19 pm

Because they’re loaning the cheap money out to students, home owners, and car buyers who can’t pay them back.

AlNouveau July 5, 2013 at 8:30 pm

I’ll second that.

So if these fat cats have the money to pay their loans back then why do we need to keep bailing them out?

Pepsifx357 July 5, 2013 at 10:00 pm

The billionaire fat cats had the means to pay back those loans in the first place. Think of what will happen when interest rates go up on all of those long term student loans. What happens when all of those college students that got a all those loans at near zero percent can’t find a job to pay it back. There are too many long term problems with doing this. I’m not justifying the misuse of cheap money by corporations, because there should be no such thing in the first place.

Polydynamix July 5, 2013 at 10:48 pm

It’s not throwing money at anyone. There’s no free hand outs- no free gifts only an incentive for people to further their education. Why is it that billionaire fat cats get low interest rates and that seems ok to you but giving low interest rates to the youth of america so they can get an education is some sort of problem?
