As for the accusation of paranoia, how many times do you have be run over by the bus before you start to approach the corner with caution.

Except the government was always the lender. No one in the student loan business lent their own money, they lent the feds money. All private industry here did was mark up the loan.
Under this bill you can still go to private lenders for a student loan, the problem is, they don't exist.

It doesn’t matter, historically, you control the education system and who has access to it and you control the culture. Call this move the Teddy Kennedy method of getting things your way. Kennedy made no qualms about taking small bites to accomplish eating the proverbial elephant – the goal is one payer government health care so let’s start with a small group of folks like the young or the old. Medicare/Medaid is the foundation; now we can expand the program to everyone. Once the government controls access to student loans they will be able to further dictate the curriculum and who goes to college or not. Parents how many times have you said, "as long as you live in my house you'll live by my rules." That's our future under the policies of this administration.

I teach my kids that they will be known by the people they hang with. I don’t need to be smacked along side the head more then once to know the type of people this guy hangs with or their ultimate goal for this country. For Pete’s sake, we were told what these goals were prior to the election and refused to listen. For those of you who refuse to see and accept this administration for what it is – When do you draw the line? We’ve been called racists for disagreeing with this administration policies, we’ve seen the government take over a large part of the car manufacturing segment of our economy, we’ve seen the government take over financial institutions, we’ve witnessed the attempt to take over the health care industry. We have the federal government trying to force us to buy a product which we may or may not want, i.e. health care. We see the Congress attempting to put in place the largest tax increase, job killing bill ever devised and call it a good thing because it will supposedly decreases our carbon foot print. The president admits your electricity bill will sky rocket under this bill. Now them want to lock in tighter control of our higher education.
Where do you draw the line? When is enough, enough? Please answer that question. Lisa

And LIsa, I too would expect that you or one of the other wingnuts here to be the first to post this scare topic based only upon the lies told to you by Glenn Beck since I suspect that if Beck didn't tell you to think this, it wouldn't even be a blip on your radar.

Only if you are too lazy to parent your own children and you were hoping the schools would raise them for you.
