What Every Conservative Needs to Know about Student Loans

Over a third of US States have student loan debt that exceeds their budgets. Most are historicaly Red States.
States where student loan debt exceeds the state budget
States where federal student loans only exceed the state budget

While Georgia is the worst student loan debtor-state in the country (as a percentage of the state budget), Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Alabama, Indiana, Tennessee, and Missouri aren’t far behind. This will only get worse for the republicans.

Older people now outnumber younger with student loans, and owe far more.

Of the 45.4 million student loan borrowers in the country, about 39 million were losing sleep over their student loans on election day, and they span the political spectrum. This doesn’t include the 15-or-so private borrowers and their cosigners.

In one fell swoop, the republicans have managed to both abandon tens of millions of their constituents, and betray their conservative principles. This is the height of elitism, arrogance, hypocrisy, and stupidity.

Trump would have massively stimulated the economy, jettisoned a broken and threatening lending scam, and paved the way for a complete re-build of higher education financing in this country. The republicans would have won both the presidential election, and also the two close Senate races in Georgia.
