Senator Lamar Alexander and Members of the Senate Education Committee
Dear Senator Alexander,
Given the news that the "Obama Administration Improperly Denies Student Loan Debt Relief," at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/08/federal-student-loans-defense-against-repayment_n_7242136.html ,
this is to ask you to have the Senate Committee on Education hold hearings on this topic and subpoena the staff of the US Education Department and the CEOs of their contractors to ask WHY they are NOT doing their jobs re helping student loan borrowers.
Also, there needs to be Senate hearings and action on how Social Security benefits of senior citizens on fixed incomes are being garnished by both the US Education Department and other federal agencies resulting in many seniors having to seek relief by applying for state and federal assistance for food, energy, Medicaid and housing. Does this make sense Senator?
Please note the 'topic' chosen above is "Small Business" because, after all, people who invest in themselves are indeed the best small businesses America has. Chasing them into their graves, harassing them for debts they cannot pay, denying them equal protection under federal bankruptcy laws and basically ruining them and their families throughout their lives is NOT the American way.
Since Republicans now control our Congress, it is now time to the lead on this by holding hearings and taking needed corrective Congressional action the Obama Administration refuses to take. Thanks for taking the lead in better protecting America's best small businesses: Americans who invest in themselves and are chased into poverty and into their graves for doing so. Members of Congress give away over $100 billion in 'free' foreign aid every year in taxpayer money yet they are merciless in continuing to ignore the desperate needs of their own constituents first. Why is this?
