    Not saying I disagree with the principle personally, I just think there is a subjective component to that. The larger issue is giving money to people who can't pay it back and would never be able to get any kind of loan in any other situation. Above that there is the issue of schools admitting people that don't belong in college (can't do basic math, can't read, write, or reason above an 8th grade level).

    I am reading that correctly? Is she looking to dissolve the four current loan servicers listed in the article for something new? What happens to the thousands of employees at those businesses?

    If you are not an individual but a category then that is likely so.

    The 21st Amendment created just such an intolerable situation. Elements of organized crime had to turn to political office for employment. Less fortunate criminals were forced to do as you say.

    That doesn't sound like a whole "new student loan system" to me, just an attempt to streamline and rationalize customer interaction with the loan process.
