We were 17-18 years old, and every single adult in power over us told us to go to college, get these loans to pay for it. Now we're in so much debt we can't afford to start families, buy homes, everything the other generations took for granted. Now we're "entitled" for complaining about it.

My parents were able to own property because it was attainable to do so; just like college was way more affordable. We aren't entitled we are just rattled with debt and can't get out from under student loans.

So do you have regrets about going to college, regrets about what college you chose to go to ($$$$), or regrets that you now have to repay your debts like all of the rest of us for our schooling?

If we send these kids out into the world thousands of dollars in debt, we are setting them up for failure. If we punish them for educating themselves this is why we have such a huge poverty level.

I won't let their foolishness, or your foolishness drive me into poverty. We are not a communist country, nor are we going to be.

Banks and billionaires got loan forgiveness and bailouts. That students don't get relief from predatory and outrageously overpriced tuition is obscene.

Kids at this age are so young to make these decisions and college is so expensive these days. By the time they graduate they have $50,000+ in debt and are just getting started in their employment and all ready overwhelmed in debt.

If you are mature enough to take out a loan, then you should be mature enough to pay it back. Nobody made you take out a loan. If your field of study/ preferred career doesn't pay enough to support you and pay back your loans, then you chose poorly. You've just learned personal responsibility.

Felisha chose a profession that pays nothing, and blames others. LOL

So because I chose social work as a career and spend 50 to 60 hours a week doing so, I should find a different career? Wait until you need a socialworker. I'm not saying I shouldn't pay loans back but there should be some Incentive working for our communities and our residents.

I have never asked anyone else to pay my bills, they should of had their priorities straight to begin with. 1, degree, 2. Career, 3. Pay off bills, 4. buy a new car, 5. Then you're ready for a relationship/marriage/and a house.

Absolutely not. Let them pay their own bills like the rest of us have.. They have already been given too much with no payments for three years. Make them pay

I'm sick & tired of people with their entitlement attitude. I took out a student loan, I paid it off. If you took out a student loan, you pay it off.

NO, Joseph Edward Trueblood. You are too irresponsible to start a family, and buy a home. Student loans won't buy common sense.
