#1 66% Oppose Forgiveness Of Student Loans11-04-2011, 01:17 PMtudent loan debt may have topped $1 trillion this year, but according to a recent Rasmussen poll, a sizable majority of Americans would be opposed to the federal government forgiving these loans.
Rasmussen has more:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 21% of American Adults think the federal government should forgive the nearly $1 trillion in loans it made or guaranteed to help students pay for a college education. Sixty-six percent (66%) oppose the forgiveness of all student loans.Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.
Student loan debt has been a major concern of the Occupy Wall Street movement, where protestors have been vocal about their frustrations with crushing loan debt.
"I have about $75k in student loans. I will default soon. My cosigner, my father, will be forced to take my loans. He will default as well. I've ruined my family because I tried to rise above my class," wrote one former student on the movement's website.
Worth going to HuffPo to see the slideshow of people most of whom have made one bad decision after another.

Poor babies."Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

Not too sure what this poor soul means; whether he means he tried to rise above his station in life or above his academic class.
But default is something he is choosing, whether he wants to believe it or not. Many, many, times I have heard recent grads talk about not wanting to take a job "outside" their field. What nonsense.
No doubt these same meat heads holding signs that say they owe $75,000 were ridiculing Sara Palin for taking 5 years to finish. She finished debt free, but that would be lost on this group.

I know too many people that signed up for a heavy class load, just to cancel, so they could have more loan money. Or they made school a career when they should of been focused on the future.
I don't feel sorry for them.
If I could just be an illegal resident living in CA, I could go to school free! Who needs loans? :D
