My $65,000 student loan ballooned to over half a million dollars because student loans hold too much power. That needs to change!!

Students should not have to mortgage their future to establish a career. Student loans fuel rapidly inflating college tuition. Colleges and universities are not accountable and do not help students establish the careers that they promise.

Because while our president is worried about dead people voting and the size of vastly smaller inauguration size and his addiction to incessantly tweeting stupid shit, Americans in every state are struggling to survive. Sometimes, it feels like my only option is to continue to apply to program after program because I cannot conceivably repay the burden I have...and just stay in school, with loans deferred, until I die. Is anyone in our government proud that that would even be an option someone is forced to consider?!? Oh, and I forgot to add that I would be doing everything I could in hasten my death along, 20-30, maybe 40 years earlier than it naturally would be. Yay! America....

Alan Collinge, in a similar petition https://Petitions.Whitehouse.gov/petition/level-playing-field-and-return-standard-bankruptcy-protections-all-student-loans is correct: 11 USC § 523(a)(8) violates the U.S. Constitution's "Uniformity Clause": Art. 1, Sec. 8, Cl. 4: Current law is NOT uniform (since it treats student debt differentially!!), and must be repealed! (Also violates numerous other constitutional provisions.

I am 57 years old and have $250,000 in debt from Parent's Plus Loans to finance the college education of my 2 oldest children. The loans have a 30 year term. They will be paid off when I am 87 years old, should I live that long....

I will most likely be paying off my (and my child's) student loan debt for the rest of my life. Interest rates are too high and it shouldn't be this hard to get an education to live a decent standard of living in this country
