Yeah, cry me a river.After law school, she and Barack were beset by loans they'd still be paying had her husband not written two best-sellers, "The Audacity of Hope" and "Dreams From My Father."
Those debts early in their marriage, she said, equips her husband to better understand the problems many Americans face.
Some of us chose to go to state universities because the cost was lower. Personally, I passed on UC Berkeley and Stanford because the idea of paying the tuition scared the crap out of me. I had some scholarships, some bucks saved up and did this thing some might call "work" to pay for my education and to be blunt, I get kinda pissy when people whine about having to pay back student loans. In the meantime, we write a check every month to repay my wife's student loans. Never missed a payment and never bitched about having to pay them. Sixteen more checks to write, thank you. We're thankful for her opportunity to have the education and the well paying career it afforded her.
People who whine about student loans are no different than people bitching about the high price of the car payments they chose to make or the adjustable mortgages they "got coerced into signing up for".
Buck up and shut up.
Pay your damned bills.
Thanks for listening... I better get a cup of coffee...
