None of those proposals is like what submitter said.

Uh, maybe try again on that link there bad boy.

Or maybe your plan was "make weak sauce troll headline and link to random top page of random publication."

Either way you suck.

grow up, submitter

next time use something a bit more mature like "farty-pant-a-crats"

There's a demonocrat party? I bet the conventions are awesome.

/With a headline like that, I'm sure Subby is anticipating a reasoned and insightful discussion on the issue
 
2014-03-28 08:56:59 AM  
Demon-o-crats

We would also have accepted: Demnocrats, Demoncraps, Dummycrats, Dhimmicrats, Dumbascraps, Derpocrats, DIMs or the democrat party.

This cannot be "Thised" enough.   Pay as you earn might help me.  The refinancing could help me with one of my loans.  The bankruptcy part might also help, but that would be a last resort.

"Demon-O-Crats"? Drew, please fire the pathetic modmin who greened this headline.
 
2014-03-28 09:08:45 AM  
This is the part where the troll-tastic headline completely eliminates the possibility of any discussion of the actual article or topic.

+1

There's provocative headlines; there's derp; there's outright trolling; and then way over in the distance, there's this.

What does this even link to? I see a login with facebook button, three ads, a demographic question (male/female), about 15 lines of blocked out bars, and then more ads. WTF subby?

It's "Demonic-rats".

I'm sure that in the alternate universe that Subby and other right wingers have inside their empty heads it does.

One solution would be to have performance requirements for institutions that receive student loans.  Fail to perform and you don't get the benefits of federal student loans.

Also allow student loans to be discharged in bankruptcy.

Right now the schools and lenders are guaranteed their money and have zero interest in keeping costs low.

sprgrss: Also allow student loans to be discharged in bankruptcy.


That is one of the proposals, but the article doesn't specify if that is for just Stafford Loans, just private loans, or both Stafford and Private Loans.

Are you using Chrome?  I see that frequently and I am wondering if it is because I do not have NoScript.  I keep wanting switch back to Firefox, but I do like some featured of Chrome better... if I had NoScript it would be perfect

Not to mention all of that undergrad student loan money gets sent to graduate research departments.  The whole university systems feeds on the undergrads and provides them the least amount of resources they can get away with.

Was there an article somewhere in that link?

And people wonder why right leaning headlines rarely get nominated for headline of the year.
 
2014-03-28 10:52:50 AM  
If they ever do decide to do that student loan forgiveness idea that's been floated by some, I hope they wait just a couple years til I graduate.
 
2014-03-28 10:55:14 AM  
We already did the ironic clickbait headline this week  subby but thanks anyway.
 
2014-03-28 10:58:11 AM  
Find me a proposal that solves this situation in two years that doesn't have to go through Congress.
 
2014-03-28 11:08:07 AM  
I don't want to answer a question before reading the article...
 
2014-03-28 01:04:18 PM  
Um, where is the article? It probably concerns me, since I have a crap load of loans.
 
2014-03-28 05:08:04 PM  
How pathetic. Could the headline be anymore childish?

47 is the new 42: sprgrss: Also allow student loans to be discharged in bankruptcy.

That is one of the proposals, but the article doesn't specify if that is for just Stafford Loans, just private loans, or both Stafford and Private Loans.


screw that. get out of school, declare bankruptcy, walk away from paying off your useless art history degree and ... what? in the mean time i eat that loan in higher taxes. hell no.

now if you want to teach in an inner city school and have your loans decreased by say 15% for each year you do fine.  heck make it 20% per year. that way we, the taxpayers who will fund this, get something for our money.

My degree is in mathematics.  My issue was I finished up when the economy went into the shiatter and had trouble explaining what I could use my degree for and eventually took the first full time position I could get.  It's also not my Stafford loans that are the problem, but my private loans as there are options for Stafford Loans, but private lenders can essentially say screw you even if you try to ask them if there is anything they can do.

look i used your comment to make my point and while i'm sorry for what happened i didn't incur your debt. i have 50+ y/o friends paying off student debt since it got stopped, restarted, stopped again due to the economy. you may have seen this story. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/27/elizabeth-warren-obama-salli e -mae_n_5045512.html shiatty things have and are happening to good people.

i'm not a fan of discharging debt through bankruptcy with the possible exception of medical debt. took out loans, pay them back. student, a new business, a house - you took out those loans. getting cancer and a hundred grand in debt, not so much.
 
2014-03-29 01:31:28 PM  
I still think you simply assumed I had a degree such as art history.  It also appears that you don't understand the difference between Stafford and Private Loans.  You also seemed to have neglected I mentioned bankruptcy as a last resort.  I'd say give Private Lenders two choices:  either offer payment plans similar to those offered for Stafford Loans or the loans can be discharged under bankruptcy like other debt.
