Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This is the Republican true Bible. Do you have your copy? Better understand it and realize why we no longer are that shinning lighthouse for the world on a stormy sea of life. It explains the loyal support for a egoistical President that allows these libertarian goals to be met by policy makers at least on the corporate and economy side of things. Now these libertarians have preselected and groomed the last judicial selections for the GOP for nearly 20 to 30 years.

The top advocate for student borrowers reportedly resigns, saying the bureau has "betrayed" students.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Great read! Excerpt: Under Mr Frotman - made sure to support populations that may not always make it into mainstream conversations about student loans: veterans, lower-income families and older Americans. These groups have been most vulnerable to predatory industry behaviours like deceptive marketing strategies aimed to get students into loans they may not even need, she adds. "When the agency is very obviously catering to the needs of those who are the most powerful and wealthy in the industry, it's hard to see how the needs of average Americans are going to get represented adequately," she says.
