Title: Taking student-loan payments out of paychecks
Post by: klg14 on February 12, 2019, 02:48:58 PM
Borrowers could soon be required to pay back their federal student loans directly from their paychecks, if one powerful Republican gets his way.

I don't have a problem with this.  Considering Australia's method, I wonder why we don't already do this already.  Although it doesn't help people suffering under loans from private lenders, perhaps it will encourage people to make more reasonable choices when choosing a college in the first place.  In other words, if you're forced to take a loan from a private lender to afford tuition, maybe you shouldn't attend that college.

You and I both know HBCUs main audience are kids who cant afford schools in the first place. You get rid of the crazy loans the government backs, then you are signing many schools(including black ones) a death sentence.
