Guys, I agree that it sucks that if we had only been in school a year or two ago, we could have our student loans at under 6%. But I think we need to keep a little bit of perspective. As recently as the mid-nineties, mortgage rates were around 10%. In the early eighties, they were close to 20%. I'm sure our parents remember that well.
Does the federal government dumping the insane defecit on the backs of its students suck? Of course. Maybe people will now be more willing to get rid of the bozos in Congress and the monkey in the White House. Perhaps this is the first time the government has done something that has tangibly affected us twenty-somethings (until they decide to invade Iran and reinstate the draft, of course...)
