Trump Executive Order: Return Bankruptcy Rights to Student Loans
President Trump: We ask you to please- by EXECUTIVE ORDER- direct the Department of Education and its contractors to immediately STOP CHALLENGING BANKRUPTCY FILERS with student loans in court. So you know: Student Loans have become a predatory, hyper-inflationary, big-government national threat to this country, as you know. This happened because Congress removed bankruptcy protections, statutes of limitations, and many other fundamental consumer protections from the loans, and also gave the Department of Education and its contractors viciously powerful collection powers that are being used to abuse the people. This out-of-control, big-government lending system has devastated the lives of tens of millions of citizens, and threatens to wreck far more. Very soon. The Founders saw this problem coming. This is why they called for uniform bankruptcy laws AHEAD of the power to raise an army, coin currency, and even declare war in the U.S. Constitution. The time has come to drain the Student Loan Swamp. Congress has been stalling for decades, so this duty falls on you, President Trump. Please do not let us down.

Return Bankruptcy Rights to All Student Loans: PASS HR. 770
The Founding Fathers called for uniform bankruptcy laws ahead of the power to declare war, raise an army, and coin currency when they gave Congress its powers in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. This right, however, has been stripped uniquely from student loans. The results have been disastrous. The lending system has turned predatory, the federal government now makes obscene profits on the backs of the students, and the colleges have raised their prices recklessly. This is ruining the lives of tens of millions of people. People are now being forced off the grid en masse. Some are fleeing the country. Others are committing suicide. All feel the predatory weight of this viciously predatory lending system on their backs. These people vote. This cannot continue. We are asking President Trump to immediately issue an executive order instructing the Department of Education and its contractors to not challenge bankruptcy filers on student loans in court. We are asking Congress to immediately repeal 11 USC 523(a)(8) by passing HR. 770, a REPUBLICAN-sponsored bill that does precisely this. The Founding Fathers saw how predatory lending could be used to conquer and enslave a country. The student loan example proves their wisdom in spades.
