    I understand and feel for your's plight but consider the 'long-sighted' view in which most of us have passed. When these outstanding balances are forgiven someone has to pay for them. Remember we will be gone leaving this to your children and THEIR children to pay for thus making their chore more difficult than you see it is today.

    Other countries who have free enterprise medical systems, something Americans have abandoned in several areas. are already gearing up for first class Medical Tourism.
    That's simply not true. They compare quite favorably with us, and have better access for more.

    And nothing will stop the rich from spending more for useless things. They will always be free to overspend. But that isn't where the real problem is. We have such a poor system that we pay more on the whole and with less access.

    Re: Obama to Announce Student Loan Relief Plan

    Buying votes? Lord you guys are funny.

    Anyway, perhaps the other fellow shouldn't have borught up health care. True, and I'd be happy to move to another thread. But I try to answer what is actually said.

    Now, if Obama were buying votes, then the effort is laughable as he clearly has not done enough to accomplish that.

    That is IMHO his aim here.

    Re: Obama to Announce Student Loan Relief Plan

    The latest atrocity by the Obama administration is the blatant vote-buying scheme, a “student loan forgiveness program” courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer.

    snip

    This latest squandering of taxpayer money for votes is by presidential fiat. The list is endless, and until we get responsible adults running the government, the children will vote for candy, candy, candy to our detriment!

    Student-loan program is just Obama's way to buy votes | The Tennessean | tennessean.com
    the AP even thinks so...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking to shore up support among cash-strapped college graduates and students struggling with rising tuition costs, President Barack Obama is outlining a plan to allow millions of student loan recipients to lower their payments and consolidate their loans.

    So the question is do liberals think it is perfectly fine for a liberal democrat to use fiat to buy votes for his campaign using tax payer funds?

    Except, we aren't laughing.

    We have a near-bankrupt country, floundering in a near-bankrupt flat ecomony, being run by an ethically bankrupt President, running an ethically bankrupt campaign, who is guaranteeing that the next generation will be bankrupt before they are born.

    Its frikkin hilarious.

    What makes it funny is that it isn't likely true.

    Now, as for being bankrupt, having student debt that CAN'T be paid won't help. In some practical fasion that should be addressed. Partisan silliness won't help much.

    I'm Canadian and grew up with the Canadian Medical system. I have lived many years in Costa Rica where both systems exist side by side. I'm familiar with the British Australian and New Zealand systems, having lived and worked in all those countries,

    And you presume to tell me about government run health care systems? Where were all the wealthy Canadians go to seek good health care, Who will now be the great innovator in medical breakthroughs. The US will be farming that out for sure.

    He doesn't seem to have accomplished much of anything, unless his intent was to get the United States hopelessly into debt.
