I keep seeing stories with smiling anchors throwing to smiling reporters talking about how wonderful it is that all these American kids are graduating from college…..with no reference at all to the fact that most of them are being forced to start their work-a-day lives $80,000 or more in debt, so that uber-wealthy greedheads like the Koch brothers and our other gazillionaires can horde more money by dodging taxes. Can we please start telling the truth?
Four or five years of college is tough enough without being forced to load up on debt.
Forcing our kids to start their adult lives saddled with an enormous debt load is an unnecessary national travesty. We are ALL being played for suckers to support the wealthiest 1% at the top. Our kids, all of us, deserve better than this.
