Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has "little tolerance" for people with student loans because she worked her way through school:
That world doesn't exist any more, and she is among the people who have destroyed it! Has she checked college prices recently? (E.g., does she have any children or grandchildren?) College costs, particularly at public (state or local) colleges, have skyrocketed. Here, San Jose State was $98 a semester in the 1970s. It's thousands a year now. Private colleges have gone way up too. It's really not possible to work your way through any more. And it's worth pointing out that the cost increases at public colleges are due to reductions in state funding...and those reductions were sponsored and put in place by Republicans.
