Don't put your name on it, if you can't or don't want to pay it back. If the "Gov" offers a "good idea"? It's probably not a "good idea". Welcome to "civics"/taxpayer 101. "Student loan". What part of a "loan" did your knowledge and "education" escape you? Loan, means...other taxpayers financed your "education". ...you went to "school" on someone's dime. I have no feelings for these "educated" idiots.
Oh yeah then what the hell are they suppose to do for a living?
The trades can't handle that kind of growth and manufacturing is dead.
Staffing agencies warehouses and service jobs are what's left.
So now what?

Problem is, kids are expected to go to college right out of high school. The schools, both high school and college, along with their parents pressure them. I remember colleges coming to my high school to recruit us. With the middle class in decay and the poor being poor the only way is a loan. A loan that every single 18 year old gets, no credit check, nothing. They don't know what they're getting into and apparently their parents didn't either.
And then there are those of us who didn't rush into college and choose to go later or not at all. It's totally doable to live at home when your 18 and get a job to pay for college. Problem is, kids usually wanna move away because lets face it, that college life is awesome! PARRRTTY!
