MIchael Moore - Debtor's Prison


Instead of you going off into the real world, we send you immediately into a debtor’s prison…And at 22 you are in prison. Because now you have $10,000, $20,000, $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 worth of STUDENT LOAN DEBT that you are going to spend the next 20-30 years paying off! Why would we do this to our children?!? We didn’t have that! Those of you who are in here that are my age and older, what did it cost us to go to school here in Michigan? Let me tell you how we paid- if you didn’t get a scholarship, the way you paid for Michigan State was you worked at Dairy Queen for the summer!

  1. Because we are "low-income" my son qualifies for financial aid. He goes to a really good community college and is actually getting a good education in multimedia arts. The one and only thing he is forbidden to do is take out a student loan. I don't care if he can only afford to take one class per semester. He MUST NOT EVER take a student loan!
