Once upon a time during the primary season Bernie Sanders would discuss the important issue of Student Debt. So far during the Debates there has been one comment from Hillary Clinton who promised to do something regarding the over one trillion student loan debt on the books. Hopefully, tonight someone will get around to actually discussing this minor issue. I understand that it does not compare in importance with the rigged election or some email about Trump rallies.
BUT,there is need to confront this important issue. We offer some possible solutions.
1. Reduce all loan interest to ONE PERCENT.
2. Allow students to renegotiate loans at the lowest possible rate.
3.Offer cancellation of debt in exchange for a two year public service position in our forests, working with senior citizens, education, assisting police, etc..
4. Offer all with student debt the option to repay it under this formula: Two percent of salaries would be used to pay student debt for a lifetime or until the debt is paid off.
These are sensible solutions that would benefit ALL students burdened with debt.
