    Her emails don't matter, you can plainly see that she receives funding from for profit colleges and prisons, we didn't need any more information than that.

    She's not going to do a ****ing thing about student debt but lower interest rates, and she's not going to do a ****ing thing about the war on drugs because of her ties to CCA.

    Lower interest rates I can fathom being a good thing for current students. The question is, how will the refinances work? For example, some plans I'd read about offer a 20 year repayment plan where any remainder is forgiven at the end. If there's a refinance option, does it take into account existing payments or is it 20 years from the start of said refinance?

    Wasn't the war on drugs a Nancy Reagan endeavor, which has slowly been neglected since the 1980s?

    The war on drugs has been going on since the 60's, being horrendously militarized during the Reagan Administration.

    As for refinancing, great, make the pain of a debt heavy system feel a little less painful (more student debt than credit card debt in the country right now) instead of tearing down this ludicrous "only in America" system that is economically crippling an entire generation. What. A. Revolution.

    I'm tired of the democratic party's tactic of nibbling at the edges of a problem, it cowardly.

    Hillary’s emails reveal lucrative ties to for-profit colleges

    Let's see - "Emails" turns out to be one email. Singular, not plural.

    "Ties" - what does that mean? The single email was to get them a seat at a State Dept. function. That's the sum total of what she did for them.

    "Colleges" - again, turns out to be one college. Singular, not plural.

    "Lucrative" - Hillary has been paid nothing from the college. Bill was paid a substantial amount - "a cool $16.5 million between 2010 and 2014" - because the college was expanding into Latin America and wanted his help.

    The relationship with Bill didn't begin until after Clinton's email, so at the time Clinton requested a seat at the State Dept function there was no financial tie at all. It is beyond ludicrous to believe they paid Bill $16.5 million as quid pro quo for getting a State Dept. function seat.

    So there we have it: "Hillary’s emails reveal lucrative ties to for-profit colleges." Really solid piece of journalism there...
