At this time paying $343.01 is just too high when I have, rent, light/gas, other loans I am paying, credit cards, cell phone ($25 a month), prescription medications, regular medical visits with high co-payments, food, travel back and forth to work, laundry, etc.
No one ever answers the phone, U.S. Department of Education refuses to take into considerations about other bills. I am paying $343.01 a month, I can do $200.00 a month. But they go on Gross pay, Now America, who brings home gross pay! I haven't had a raise in 4-5 years but everything else keeps going up, up, up! They need to work with me on lowering these monthly payments NOW!
