Once again, Obama is engaged in political posturing over student loans in front of skulls full of mush at a recent "campaign" visit to three college campuses - and on our dime too,

Student loans is expected to increase exponentially in the very near future under the recently acquired federal control and oversight of student loans.

Well sport fans, it should have been left in the hands of the private sector as it was before the two houses controlled by errant fiscal democrats, the overseers of our money.

Their answer to every problem is throw borrowed money at it with the onus put on businesses to pick up the pieces at the expense of production and hiring. We are experiencing that right now, with recent college grads finding it very difficult in finding employment of any sort.

A vicious circle of events created by the obtuse empty suit sitting in the oval orifice....

Hell, the government can't run a railroad or a post office, let alone an administration that can't protect the sovereignty of our borders, or pass a required mandated budget. They would rather sue the States and law enforcement officials for doing their Constitutional duties. <sick>

Unlike you Øbama d!ck-nibblers who blindly support him, conservatives oft times don't support policies supported by so-called conservative 'leaders', e.g., TARP, stimulus, bank bailouts, etc.

I've got two graduate degrees aimed at serving humanity. Social work and education. These cost me
$135000 I have not earned yet because I cannot get a job. I hope potus Obama will cancel student loans debt. Why not? I can't use it and I can't go bankrupt to eliminate it. I can't even find a job flipping burgers, now, I am overqualified!

Why not you ask? Because if your loans are forgiven, taxpayers have to be burdened with your failed investment.

Young people today are so conditioned into getting everything for free. They expect the taxpayer to go to work everyday, create this money, and hand it to them like all the other freeloaders. Then these young people graduate as doctors, lawyers, or engineers, and when we taxpayers seek their services, they charge us an arm and a leg in spite of US paying for their education.

Nothing is free. It may be no charge to you, but when you accept these handouts, people have to go to work and create money to pay for them.

Teaching and Social work? Let me ask: when you decided on higher education, did you look in the want ads and see countless opportunities for Social work and Teachers? Of course not. There are no openings. Instead of getting degrees in areas where jobs are plentiful, you chose to get an education in fields where there are no jobs. And because of that, taxpayers should foot the bill?
