My Debt Story

imageI recently donated my status to strike debt because I have a theatre degree that at the end of my studies costs me $101,000 dollars. It hangs over my head and causes me not to be able to get a job, not to be able to have good credit and not to be able to be in a position where I can have success rather than failure in life. I’m constantly trying to figure out a way out of it, and short of becoming permanently disabled, I most likely will have this debt for the rest of my life. I would like to have my debts erased because I believe that our government should be bailing out the American people, and not the bankers and businesses who are creating the problem in the first place. Give us a non-monetary way to pay for school if the economy is so damn important. Give us a Works Project Administration way to pay it off. Give us a way we can make a voice for everyone. Last time I looked, we vote people into office, but because we don’t have the time to lobby the government, we are put in the poorhouse by people who buy and sell our debt. It’s a shame. I hate it. I don’t believe that they should get away with it. I support what you are doing, this has been more of a rant than a story, but there you go.
