So, student loan debt is growing 3 times faster than the economy. Good times.

But, what are the two candidates going to do about the problem?

Obama will probably appoint a czar, with his (it won't be a woman, or if it is, she'll be paid 18% less) own staff and nebulous job description. He'll appoint a special blue-ribbon task force, whose recommendations he will 'carefully consider' before putting them in the trash, after he deems them too politically risky, or if they require him to forgo a golf outing or a Hollywood dinner. He'll go on The View and say how he's working for the benefit of young people everywhere, and they will fawn over him, as Elizabeth Hasslebeck is bound and gagged offstage. And, he'll announce that new college graduates that can prove that they're still having to live in their parent's basements will be entitled to a 50% discount in the Obama campaign paraphernalia store, with a DVD of Obama's important speeches and a Julia! animated sequence included free with each purchase. In three years, Obama will secretly empower one or more of his Cabinet to issue regulations to forgive student loan debts, whether or not it's against the law to do so (after all, it hasn't stopped him yet).

Romney would only grow the economy so they can get jobs and pay their debts back.
