“For the first eight years of our marriage, [Michelle and I] were paying more in student loans than what we were paying for our mortgage. So we know what this is about.
And we were lucky to land good jobs with a steady income. But we only finished paying off our student loans—check this out, all right, I’m the President of the United States—we only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago.”
—President Obama in North Carolina today on why Congress has to act to prevent interest rates on student loans from doubling (via barackobama)
I’m never going to pay off my student loans.
This is not helping me make my final decision about going back to school. Sigh. PROBLEMS. I’ll spare you my rant about paying for college in this country.
oh. my. god. I’m screwed.
