Re: “U.S. House Approves Student Loan Bill; Labrador, Simpson Vote Yes

The greater availability of money for anything will always increase the cost of that product. Since colleges can be assured that they will receive money for any student applies they constantly raise the cost of tuition, books, lab fees, dorm rooms and food service.

I think a big mistake was bailing out banks, do you see the government bailing out payday lenders? NO! So, If the Big Banks want to RISK providing these payday loans, then they need to assume the loses along with the risk they are taking, to do so.
