Trump Administration Looks to Revamp Student Loan Rules in Favor of Indebted Students

Americans deserve the best education in the world, and the Trump administration is doing their part to make it so.

student loan debt

As we swiftly approach the 2020 presidential election, there are a number of hot topics that seem poised to dominate the polito-sphere – student loan debt being one of them.

Don’t get me wrong:  Education is one of the most important aspects of our society, and, in many ways, is the gift that we can keep on giving to ourselves for years to come.  Well-education Americans will grow up to make well-educated decisions about our future, and a hearty investment in academia will certainly provide us with solutions to America’s problems as these young men and women mature.

The only real problem that we face today is the burden of the cost of a higher education.

Many on the left are pushing for radical, sweeping changes to system, including several 2020 candidates who have proposed government subsidies to offset these costs.  For many, thrusting the clunky and ineffective federal government further into the process seems like a step backward.

That’s why Donald Trump and his administration are tackling the issue from a more privatized angle.

The Education Department has hired the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. to study how much money could be lost if low repayment rates persist, an agency spokeswoman said. Meantime, President Trump’s top economic advisers in the White House are studying ways to improve the program’s finances, senior administration officials said.

One option under early consideration is to sell at least a portion of the portfolio, a plan that has been discussed previously by Republican policymakers but faces many obstacles, including whether the government could find interested investors at the right price.

Under such a plan, the government would maintain its role as the nation’s primary lender to college and graduate students, but the government would raise money up front, instead of waiting years for borrowers to make payments and take the debt off its books. Investors would then assume the long-term risk of the loans.

The administration has also considered pressuring the schools themselves into working with indebted students.

“If the review shows that the student-loan portfolio brings in less money than previously understood, the administration could gain more support for initiatives to pressure schools to rein in tuition increases. For example, the White House has suggested developing a system to put colleges on the hook to help pay off their graduates’ outstanding debt.”

Will this be enough of an incentive to move education higher up the nation’s list of priorities?

We can only hope so, for the sake of America’s potential geniuses.

Democrats are just bad people. It’s really that simple. They still can’t believe President Trump won the 2016 election and they’re willing to do everything in their power to ensure he loses in November. Lying doesn’t faze them. Not one bit. Check this out, via The Daily Wire: The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have both reportedly confirmed that a laptop allegedly belonging to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

Trump Trolls Reporter Who Had COVID-19 for Not Wearing Mask At the White House (Watch)

Got her good!

Nobody can troll better than President Trump. The thing is, he’s usually out in front of an issue before anybody else can see a problem – and he’s generally right. Check out how POTUS nailed a biased reporter on Tuesday. From The Daily Wire: President Donald Trump released a video on Tuesday afternoon of “60 Minutes” reporter Lesley Stahl—who had a serious case of the coronavirus that required hospitalization earlier this year—not wearing a mask inside the White House and not social distancing. […] The video comes after there was apparently some sort of incident during the interview that caused Trump to end it early. “60 Minutes” is a left-wing program and Stahl has shown bias against the president in the past. WATCH: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1318644698341408769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1318644698341408769%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3%2Ccontainerclick_1&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-releases-video-of-reporter-who-had-coronavirus-not-wearing-mask-social-distancing-in-white-house When Trump was released from Walter Reed Medical Center after being cleared of COVID-19, he took off his mask when he stood on the White House balcony. Nobody was near him. That’s not good enough for this CNN reporter. From TDW: “Yeah and let us remind viewers now that the president is on steroids and a drug that fewer than 10 people outside of clinical trials have gotten inside the United States to deal with coronavirus,” Collins said. “He had a level of treatment and a level of care that most Americans would not get. That’s understandable, he is the president of the United States, obviously everyone expects that.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/kaitlancollins/status/1313257137599111169?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313257137599111169%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fcnn-reporter-complains-about-trump-taking-mask-off-trump-campaign-shows-her-taking-her-mask-off-inside-wh The problem here? Well, just watch the clip below… The Trump campaign quickly hit back at Collins, highlighting a video clip from earlier this year where she immediately took her mask off inside the White House press briefing room — an enclosed indoor space where other people were present — after she apparently thought the cameras had been turned off following the end of a…
