    But I would tell Obama to go back to his economic speech.

    If their parents wages hadn't stagnated in the last 20 years and they hadn't become responsible for more of their own health care and retirement maybe it would BE affordable now.

    Maybe if when they graduated and entered the work force and been able to get a decent paying job it would BE affordable for graduates.

    Making it easier to finance and lower interest rate is good, but just like the housing crisis you can stretch it out all you want but if you don't see the middle class having a decent wage so they can pay it off then why take on any debt at all?
