Exposing the student-loan trap

There is an old adage that asserts “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know,” meaning that personal connections can often be more important than one’s actual skills and abilities. It’s a cynical maxim, albeit one with some truth to it. In today’s labor market, however, having the right skill set is more important than ever for anyone who wants to succeed.

Disrupting the student loan bubble

In 21st century America, disruptive technology is all around us. Smartphone apps allow us to summon transportation at the touch of a button, to book accommodations in a stranger’s apartment, to arrange an impromptu dinner party with people we have never met and to navigate our way through unfamiliar cities without the need of a map or compass.

Obama's Student Loan Plan Mirrors the Housing Crisis

As I wrote some time ago, the market for student loans is a mess that is rapidly heading for a painful correction. The Obama administration’s misguided quest to provide higher education for all has distorted the cost calculations of college to a devastating degree. Yet, rather than recognize the dangerous bubble he has created, the president is now doubling down—backing a policy dreamed up by Elizabeth Warren to allow the refinancing of student loans en masse at current interest rates, and making up the cost with the “Buffet Rule,” a special provision that would ensure that millionaires pay a minimum income tax rate.

Key Vote NO on Senator Warren's Tax-and-Spend Student Loans Bill

As one of our over 6 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask that they vote NO on the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act, S. 2432. This bill would continue the total federal takeover of student loans, funded on the back of further tax increases.

Student Loans Are Another Bubble Ready to Burst

If there’s one group of people who are getting a raw deal these days, it’s the young. The unemployment rate among 16- to 19-year-olds is a whopping 19.1 percent, ObamaCare is raising the costs of health insurance for young people by compelling them to subsidize their parents and grandparents, and the current generation of politicians continues to rack up debt that will one day have to be paid for at future generations’ expense.

Oregon's Plan To Set Up A College Tuition Ponzi Scheme

A lot of ink has been spilled in covering the latest cockamamie idea coming out of Oregon; the so-called 'Pay it forward, Pay it back' college tuition scheme. What's striking is that the state legislature and one US Senator are giving serious consideration to what amounts to a Social Security style Ponzi Scheme - a massive redistribution plan that is doomed to fail.  This is all in an effort to create a utopian pipe dream that would magically erase the terms 'debt' and 'tuition' from our lexicon when discussing higher education.

Bipartisan Student Loan Agreement Sells Out Students

Here it comes again, the “great sell out” of American students. The Senate has arrived, once again, to “save” college students by extending artificially cheap interest rates to them. Politicians warn that without passing legislation, students are going to face major cost increases. Couched as the moral, right, and compassionate thing to do, the legislation they’ve cooked up is merely a cover for selling out our students.
