The Cost of College and Student Debt

The Cost of College and Student Debt

Andrew Samtoy
on Dec 10, 2015

A college degree might set you up for a successful career. It can also saddle you with so much debt you can't even think about buying a house, according to a report by the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss student loan debt -- well over a trillion dollars in the U.S.

The majority of Millennials believe the American dream is dead...It is for now.. Do they have the political power to revive it,and return it from the dead..?? That is the BIG 2016 question...Is there any path to ending Reaganomics..??

Former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels,is now President of Purdue University.. Set up the gravy train,while in office... cash in on the retirement program,as a severance package bonus..

Our Columbus Legislature,is a brain free zone.. They will never undo the damage they`ve done,let alone admit it.. Now, the Legislature tells colleges to reduce cost.. In a Red State,what does that mean..?? More adjuncts,who work 60 hours,and get paid for 20.. Cut benefits and wages... The Columbus answer is always the same.. Compound the damage to society..

Once upon a time,college was free,in places like California..Once upon a time,college in Ohio was cheap and affordable.. A student could live at home,and pay the tuition bill with a part time job.. Once upon a time,taxpayer dollars went towards the betterment of Society.. BUT...those days are gone.. We made the political decision to give all our tax money,to the rich.. So be it..Smile when the bills are due.. You asked for it..
