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,

While this might not be my immediate choice of action I can see it working into the future if job prospects do not work out.

I am 47 years old and have $60,000 of student loan debt. I pay $550 a month. I live in a studio and drive a Honda Civic. I don't go on vacations. I don't go out to eat. I can't even afford to have a cat. Sometimes I'm hungry and don't have any food. I don't have any savings. I can't save for retirement and will probably never own a house. If my debt isn't paid off before I retire the government will garnish my Social Security. I dream of leaving the country and starting over.

If a degree guaranteed a job equivalent to the financial investment, then no one would find themselves in a position that would require bankruptcy. There is no reason to disallow student loans in a bankruptcy. The cost of education in this country is outrageous, but we are sold that a good education is a necessary investment and step to a better future. If we gamble on that and it doesn?t pay off, then we can find ourselves destitute. If we gamble on a higher education and it does pay off, paying back our student loans is part of the accomplishment. I for one would be happy to pay off my student loans, if only I could afford them. #StillJobHunting.
