Obama: ‘I Don’t Want Our Young People Just Saddled with Debt’

‘I don’t want our young people just saddled with debt before they’ve even gotten started in life’

BARACK OBAMA: "Congress had the chance to pass a law that would help lower interest rates on student loans. They didn’t pass it. I acted on my own to give millions of Americans a chance to cap their payments, the program that Victor has taken advantage of.  I don’t want our young people just saddled with debt before they’ve even gotten started in life.”
