We asked our followers what they thought of the president's plan to reduce the burden of college debt.

As a grad student, capping monthly loan payments to 10% of income sounds good. However, I'm most concerned about the jobless rate.


Reduce or eliminate interest instead. I've spent 25 years teaching, and I'm still paying. I'll be paying until I retire!


I think fewer people should go to college.


The president's action is a small but important first step. Hopefully, congressional Republicans will start to take this seriously.
