    The government runs the student loan program. Just like the governments Fannie and Freddie f'ed up the mortgage market leading to the great recession, the student loan program is a vote buying gift to undeserving people.

    Housing loans were given to many that could not or would not make payments. Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac were the driving force behind the recession. W didn't have the political power the stop the bleeding. Remember Barney Frank & Chris Dodd?

    Don't pay you car loan they take you car. Don't pay you mortgage they take the house. What did she expect no one forced you to take out a student loan.

    I come from a family of educators. All worked part time while they were in college. My children also worked part time & worked summer jobs. With my income & their work, they graduated debt free. It just depends on how hungry one is for education. We as taxpayers don't owe anybody a college degree.

    And the article is worded as such to imply it was so wrong of them to take the money. What did she do with the money that she took ? $80K ain't a few bucks. That's deliberate. She knew when she took all that money that she was responsible for having done it. That is a lot of schooling to be playing dumb.

    You saw her making a fool of herself only on Fox. It wasn't politically correct to not blame "Mr. Big Bank" as Watters called the bank executives.
