For every 1000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to Congress asking for student loan refinancing legislation.

Americans are more than $1.2 trillion in student debt. Many of them are failing to pay even the minimum on their student loans, with no hope of refinancing. 

Currently homeowners and corporations have the opportunity to take advantage of historically low interest rates. Student loan borrowers should be able to do the same, yet are stuck paying sky-high interest rates. The impacts their ability to purchase homes, save for retirement, and more.

We need new legislation that will not only allow for, but make it easy for student loan borrowers to refinance their student loans. We stand with groups such as Generation Progress and Take Part in moving forward to urge Congress to pass new legislation to allow for student loan refinancing.

  • Refinance them at a fixed 1% or lower.
  • Our Congress and President bailed out the crooked banks and Wall Street to the tune of million maybe billions of dollars and they their unbridled greed and corruption will bring another deep recession. Yet we are short of educated and trained workers in America and we should forgive the student loans not to mention have free college education in America so we can really rebuilt this country and put our own educated workers to work instead of bringing people from foreign counties who will work for a lower pay!
  • I am watching my daughter, in debt for college — only be able to afford payment on the interest… it is a never ending cycle.
