"Student loans are truly an evil burden foisted upon unsuspecting young people.

I would like to see them eliminated by the government, and an apology issued to those who had to take them out in the first place."

Not to disagree too strongly, but I think student loans are a great program, which help students get an education and also be personally responsible for it.

I would be in favor of more programs of student loan forgiveness, such that some of the limited programs in teaching and medicine were greatly expanded, especially into areas the U.S. isn't as competitve. I would also favor some form of forgiveness based on contribution to society (i.e. maintainint a job).

Student loans have held me accountable for the classes (semesters??) I goofed off. But they have also allowed me to get graduate degrees.
