    The next great crisis.

    Drop $90 billion on this item, forgive all outstanding federal student loans.

    Make an investment in the intellectual future of this country by freeing the minds of millions of young economic dynamos. You'll get your money back before Obama leaves office.

      ...forgive all student loans, after I have already paid mine off.  Not fair.

          ...get "screwed".  We agreed to pay for our educations.  Student loans are not like the subprime loans where greedy brokers told lies to borrowers.
