Student Loan Debt: ONE BIG PARTY!
Problem Is: Student Borrwers are NOT invited!Democrats care less about helping us SOLVE our student loan problems. They used to HELP the poor. The 'little guy.' Like student loan borrowers in trouble. NOW they take campaign contributions from wealthy people running credit collection firms (and their subsidiaries?) hired by - get this - the US Department of Education to harass student loan borrowers and also pay each other off with political favors. Like this example:
