    Low interest helps, but the problem someone with $50k in student loan debt has is the $50k in student loan debt.

    And what does a win here get us: a applause line and then continued not doing anything about the actual problem?

    How about no more federal guarantee to the student loan sharks and the ability to forgive the debt through bankruptcy?  Or maybe the fed buying student loan debt instead of mortgages and treasuries?  If the White House wants to fight for something that would really help, I'm in.  Not for this.
