Requesting Cosponsors To Discharge Student Debt through Bankruptcy: H.R.449 - 114th Congress (2015-2016)

Messages Sent So Far
Dear Members of Congress,

Bankruptcy protections should never have been removed from any student loans in this nation. In general, we believe it is very clear at this point that removing bankruptcy protections from both private and federal student loans has led to predatory lending behavior, has enabled unchecked inflation in the cost of college, has led to intolerably poor oversight in the case of federal loans, and caused a plethora of other negative consequences that have far outweighed any short term financial benefits to the lending side of the system. The harm this has done to the citizenry has been incalculable. Therefore, we believe that bankruptcy protections must be returned to all student loans as quickly as possible. The current legislation is an important start, however, and so we look forward to its quick passage.

Please cosponser H.R. 449 to help generations of Americans struggling with the financial burden of student loan debt.

Signed,

Our government is so quick to spent it's money on whatever they see fit. We as taxpayers always pick up the tab. WHY is this fair? How about cutting us the people so slack. Help us with our debt, we the people always pay your debts. Students debt is hurting we the people.

Education should be the most important thing for any nation. Considering all the money that is paid in federal and state taxes the student loan debt problem that we are facing should not be that big of a problem. It is the responsibility of a nation state to make sure that its inhabitants are taken care of and have a good life. Most people who take out school loans are trying to generate some kind of meaningful life for themselves and their families. We who are trying to better ourselves and our nation should be rewarded for our hard work. Instead we are being punished by our nation because of the way that the student loan and education systems are set up. I think this type of behavior by a responsible nation is unacceptable and makes our nation seem not very responsible. We need help with this crisis.

In my previous note below I mistakenly called my daughters what I should and meant to call the banks and lenders are the legal loan sharks. My apologies for the confusion.

What my 2 daughters are what you would call legal loan sharks. You wonder how in this day and age it can go on. Please who ever is listening to help them and all the others, please do something to stop these predatory lenders. They work hard and make their payments every month and they can't get no relief to refinance at reasonable rates. No one should pay The outrageous rates they have to pay. I am sure they are not the only ones in same situation.

I have $140,000 of private loan debt with zero options of a reasonable payment plan. Navient has me trapped in a corner of struggling to make payments each month with no finish line in sight with ever being debt free.
