Obama in Colorado pushing student loan relief

(CNN) - President Barack Obama took his economic relief plan on the road to Colorado Wednesday, highlighting new measures designed to help college graduates manage student loan debt.

One of the president's measures will push up the start date for more favorable terms on a special loan repayment program based on income. Another measure is designed to encourage graduates with two or more kinds of federal loans to consolidate them and get a small break on interest rates.

    Well the college debt relief is definitely something that the Obama administration can add to its arsenal of accomplishments. President Obama is "doing the impossible for the ungrateful" and he deserves a 2nd term whether he gets it remains to be seen but we would do our nation a dis-service by electing any of the clowns in the GOP primary currently.

    The bottom line is.......more tax payer relief for those who are in debt of their own volition, and refuse to pay their debts.

    This makes zero sense........more Obama welfare, for people who are educated, but shiftless.
