Student debt problem is the most common problem today. The rates for the student loans are too high. It’s very difficult for student and their families to pay back this loan.

If you won’t pay it back it will dig you into debts and the sum that you should pay it’s getting more and more huge. Hope that our government will pass the bill for decreasing the rates for student loans. Good luck and successful loans.

Tough call here. I appreciate the need for these loans and keeping interests rates down to make paying these off easier.

However if the federal government stays in this business universities will keep hiking rates as they view this loan program as a money well that will never run dry. Raise the rates and the government just keeps loaning more and more.

Where exactly is the incentive to keep rates down in this system?
