Yes please: This is one of those jokey, faux outrage headlines, right?
Tuskan_Roeder: Subby should talk to older generations about how many people exercised their "right" to go to college before World War II.
kidgenius: Well...I had started paying extra on my loans to get them taken care of by the end of the year. Hit a speed-bump or two, so this now is quite the incentive to hurry up and get those things paid off quickly.
WillofJ2: This only effect new student loans?
Aarontology: Tuskan_Roeder: Subby should talk to older generations about how many people exercised their "right" to go to college before World War II.While he's at it, he should ask them how many of them needed a college degree to get a job, even an entry level one like now.
brap: Let them borrow at bank rates.
pantojar: kidgenius: Well...I had started paying extra on my loans to get them taken care of by the end of the year. Hit a speed-bump or two, so this now is quite the incentive to hurry up and get those things paid off quickly.I think the rate hike applies to new loans only.
WhippingBoy: A lot of people have the attitude that education is owed to them, and that the fact they're expected to pay off their student loans is somehow unfair.
undernova: Behold: another nail in the coffin of the middle class.
Aarontology: Businesses however, still receive the extremely favorable interest rates for their loans.
astouffer: brap: Let them borrow at bank rates.Elizabeth Warren tried that. You can probably guess how it went over. I can't believe she's still alive at this point.
Headso: Even Obama's plan is farked IMO, why add any percentage points on the 10 year interest rate, can't these kids get an education without paying a vig.
LikeALeafOnTheWind: It was 7.2% for my entire repayment. put down the game controller and go get an F-ing job you shiftless bums.
