Washington Proposes $1
Trillion Bailout for
Delinquent Student Loans

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Ron Meyer & Celia Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/30/2012 1:16:41 PM

A possible $1 trillion bailout is coming—and soon. America’s now-nationalized student loan industry just reached a value of $1 trillion, according to Citigroup, growing at a 20 percent-per-year pace. Since President Obama nationalized the industry (a tacked-on provision of the Obamacare bill), tuition has gone up 25 percent and the three-year default rate is at a record 13.4 percent. Ron discussed this problem last night with Larry Kudlow: With many young people unable to pay their loans (average graduating debt is about $29,000), Citigroup and others are speculating that this industry might be ripe for a bailout.

Comments:
These thiefs in Washington throw around a $1 trillion like it´s 50 cents. It´s outrageous and depressing what they are doing.

Mykids worked their ways through college. Stupid kids. They could have partied and had a great time but guess who has jobs? All of them. Their work ethic is one of their highest qualities--just like any employer would want. In fact, they all own homes, they all kept their first home as a rental unit and they all have kids and the mothers are stay-at-home types that keep very, very busy managing their homes and families. We are SO un-AMERICAN!

Wife and I have been working hard to pay our loans. Do we get a gift too?

So the price of tuition can be artificially inflated by government money availability, then the government provides more money to bail the system out?

What about the millions of people out there who took out student loans, graduated from college, got jobs, who have been struggling ever since to make their student loan payments each month, and who have not defaulted?

Maybe they vote Republican!

Thing is that right now, if you are delinquent on your student loans, you don´t get anymore to go to school. I know SEVERAL people who could be going to school right now and are not because they can´t get aid for defaulting on their loans....and it SHOULD be that way.

I am grateful for the help. I plan on going to school starting January for an accounting degree. I am 45 years old with a retired Air Force husband going to nursing school and two daughters also in college. We need the help and expect to pay back every penny. I´ve paid my taxes and helped others all this time, I don´t think it´s too much to get the help now that I need it.

But PLEASE do not forgive student loan debt. It´s unfair to those of us who do pay it back and value it. Besides which, forgiving it will make tuition go up all that more....and books.....my God, my books for a 2 year degree are over 3,000.

If a student loan is bailed out, the degree (and any resulting credentials) should also be revoked from the recipient.

My kids worked through college, and we spent a bundle paying the rest, so they could get their education.

If student loan holders get a bailout, we´ll be paying for their education after we´ve paid for our own. What a joke.

I paid mine back in-full, my wife is nearly done, and her children are paying regularly on theirs.

If they can´t pay, then take it out of their tax-refunds, or credits they´re receiving.

The only bailout is for the BANKS.

And Republicans will look mean-spirited saying no, which is the point of this idea.

Hundreds of thousands of voters being given relief, and securing their vote.

OK - throw the rocks!!!

We paid our son´s way for 4 years then he borrowed for a grad school and realized by the end of 3 ears he would be in over 150,000 of debt, so he quit while ahead.

My son has a loan he´s been faithfully paying on - I think I will tell him to go into default and get bailed out. I am keepig up everyone else´s children, why not let mine take advantage of it. And by the way I will never vote deomcrat!!! I honestly feel I have never received anything for the taxes I pay in except the protection of the military, so go for it son!

Now, let the stoning begin!!

fta: A student loan bailout will also be rewarding higher education bureaucrats for a diminished product. A college degree used to mean that a person would add on average $1 million to their income over their lifetime. Today a college degree only guarantees an average $300,000 in added income over a lifetime.

~~

So why is a BA worth it anymore? Everyone has one and most of the graduates today can´t tie their own shoes without help.

University is big business y´all, too big to fail I am sure.

This just in: 2013 taxes to be based on political registration of the 2012 election. Dems tax rate will be 00.00%, repubs and independents will be 50%.

To simplify the tax structure, the only taxpayers will be repubs, independents, and capitalists.

PLEASE make it retroactive to 1960 so that I will get a boost in my retirement income. This proposal is once again Government at its very worst. I have a counter proposal - after high school, go to work for 4 years, and then, when you have saved enough for what you want to spend, pay upfront for college. If your money runs out before you graduate, drop out and go back to work to earn enough to complete your degree. This bailout would be a disgrace to every person who has ever paid for their college. You don´t buy what you cannot afford. I do not want my tax money used for this purpose, and I want to make it clear that my family would BENEFIT under this plan, because I have relatives in that situation, one of whom has been paying off college loans for over 10 years to date. That person knew exactly what she was in for and does not expect a bailout. At this point, why would anyone continue to repay a loan even if they could, when the Obama gift train is right down the tracks and stopping at your station.

I paid back every penny borrowed for my B.A., then had trouble borrowing for graduate studies because I was unmarried and had no children. So I worked hard, took extra jobs, got fellowships and scholarships and ran up the credit card on things like travel (no meals or clothes etc.). What I did manage to borrow I also paid back, every cent. Now I´m teaching college students, many of whom have no business being there. Several in my intro class will fail this semester, and I have convinced several others that teaching really is hard work - they aren´t going to continue in the program. Most of these students are being paid to go to school. It´s just another sham, feel-good program (make liberal whites feel good about getting "poor" or "people of color" into college). No way she there be a bailout for student loans. Unless that amount gets cut from their eventual social security payments. I could live with that.

Citigroup gives with one hand and takes from someplace else with the other.

This bothers me more than food stamps. Many of these strip mall colleges are the ones raking in money and giving fake degrees for something they didn´t need a degree for in the first place while overcharging.

I know someone that has extended their student loans over and over while working in their chosen profession and living at home in hopes that those loans would be forgiven.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
