The good news is that today's young people, and future young people, will keep republicans far away from the white house :thup:
That "could" actually be true......
BECAUSE the Dimocrats have been very successful at making young people dumber than a pile of Rhinoceros droppings

And...stupid ass people DO STUPID THINGS.

GREED has overwhelmed the nation. The individual (from Instagram Models, to Corporate CEOs) pursuit of material self enrichment was both the boon for the nation and could be it's bust as well.

It's the combined fault of The American people for recklessly & irresponsibly supporting detrimental influences, it's the fault of corporate greed, it's the fault of government.....it's your fault and my fault.

But to say it's the "GOPs" fault clearly reveals a lack of any grasp of reality.

The question is what (if anything) can be done about it? No matter what, Socialism is NOT the answer.

So did I when it was $5K a year. Today, it's $20K a year. But it's not like the kids today are making more than we did back when we went to college. Factor in inflation they make less and college costs more. How you gonna go without taking on massive debt?

So we will have a less educated society. Walmart and Target CEO's love this shit.

And in a way, so do I. It makes my college degree more valuable. My brother is a millionaire so he will have no problem paying for his kids college and I don't have kids. Fuck it.

AND, we were talking about this the other day. Many of my co-workers now and in the past have not had college degrees. The president of my company doesn't have a college degree. Many kids go to college and don't know what they want to do. They should go get a job if they don't know.

I'm in sales. Did I really need a communications major and business minor to do what I do? Fuck no. I would have been better off working at a furnature store learning how to sell. Or a used car lot. Or working for a stock broker which is what I did after 4 years of college. College didn't prepare me for cold calling and passing the series 7. I could have done that straight out of highschool.

Remember when our parents could graduate college and go work for GM and start raising a family right away? Today it takes 10-20 years to be financially ready to start a family. This is going to lower our population which I love.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you're an ignorant Baby Boomer because only people your age make such a stupid comparison between the cost of schooling in your generation and mine.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess he's a Republican. This is their attitude towards the out of control costs of college. They don't care because they are done. And the ones who have kids dealing with this will brush it off because they are brainwashed into thinking liberals/democrats suck and conservatives/republicans rule. Well, they do rule now and there is no way they are going to help make college more affordable. In fact Trump's appointee just got rid of all the regulations that Obama put in place to stop lenders from doing predatory shit.

I love it because how many of you, including yourself dontazmebro, do I hear defending Republicans here on these boards every day? Aren't you a Republican? Well then don't complain about the out of control costs of college. You did this to yourself.

Allow me to play devils advocate.

Go to community college first. It’s not that expensive.

Then, if you feel the need, go get your bachelor. If it may not be worth it, maybe don’t get a bachelor. A lot of the people I work with don’t even have associates. But instead of making everyone get a bachelors to get an office type job, just make it an associates.

I’m in sales. No reason I needed to get a 4 year degree. A 2 year associates would have been fine.

Why would anyone vote AGAINST lowering the interest payment? They are the same ones who will say "you don't need a college education to be successful" which is a way of enticing people to work for low wages. Truth be told a college degree is the only way to avoid working for a lousy wage for a lousy boss for a lousy company your whole life.
I take it then that your word means nothing to you?

The 'students' understood the interest rate when they applied for the loan and then used that money to finance their education. They knew what they were getting into and if anything, those that promote an education as the only means of getting out of poverty are every bit as much to blame for their plight as they are.

There ARE alternatives to college that provide excellent paths to well-paying jobs that do not cost the taxpayer a left nut, or the student half a lifetime of debt.

Nope I'm Gen Xer

And you can still go to school part time while you work full time

Where is it written in the holy scripture that you must complete a college degree in the 4 years immediately after high school?

I got 2 Bachelors' degrees and my MBA while holding a full time job
