I have no sympathy for anyone with college loans. I chose the air force was taught a skill as a jet engine mechanic. You made the decision to get higher education what was your GPA, did you go to school just to party and what was your major something exotic that sounded sexy and impressed people that had no chance for a job to support you. What’s next if your good Uncle Sam bails you out want your house paid off your car where does this end

Faster? That’s a joke, right. You never thought to pay it off before, so why now? have your social security check sent directly to the lien holder

Why did you not pay off early in your life instead of waiting till retirement real smart.The point is most people get loans thinking they will just let sit there and not pay.So guess what later loans are much bigger cause of interest accumulation and then they realize they’re mistake.All I can say is pay it you owe this money to us taxpayers you free loaders
