    i'd prefer that everyone enjoy the right to a college education, similar to the current secondary educational model.

    Since nobody said this, one wonders why you fixated on this vapid meme. Oh, I forgot, you can't say anything on the merits of conservatism's failed policies, so you have to do this.

    Will any other congress man or woman please follow Senator Warren with common sense, morality, and here understanding of fairness? I hope so but i doubt anyone else comes forward.
    I love this woman!
    While I think this proposal is a short term improvement for students, I think in the long run its just going to lead to higher college costs. College will simply raise their tuition, like they always do, to capture the difference. So in essence a higher principle with a lower interest rate will lead itself to be the exact same amount in student debt.

    The original major goal of the federal loan and grant programs that began in earnest around 1970 was to increase the ability of lower income students of obtaining degrees. Yet government data suggest that the proportion of recent graduates coming from the bottom 25 percent of the income distribution is lower today than in 1970. The Law of Unintended Consequences is at work: well-intended programs are benefiting persons other than those they were designed to help.

    And you can't say anything on the merits of liberalism's failed policies either, so you resort to talking about memes. Typical.

    my point has nothing to do with conservatism, it has to do with republican government, and the people who would destroy it with their collectivism.

    Sure I can and do all the time. You splashing around at this point.

    For instance, Warren's policy of making student loans more affordable results in more productivity and higher revenues, as workers get educated for jobs they are good at, rather than having to settle for lesser jobs because they lack the education.

    See it's easy. Now you try to actually put together a conservative argument against student loan availability. Lots of luck.

    is it right the banks are getting cheap money and making billions in profits at the same time? hell no!!!

    btw, 7% is too high. 5% sounds better. young people are at higher risk of defaulting on their loans.

    Your assumption is that it would make it more affordable. That is quite false, as colleges will just raise their tuition to capture the difference, as they have done ever since the student loan program was put into place. Thus, this is really just welfare to the colleges' coffers (which are already quite full I might add) with higher tuition being the result placed on students.
