The predatory issue she has was with shady colleges working to attract students but failing to deliver an education. Previously the government would forgive these loans if the complaint was qualified...under Trump this has pretty much ceased.

Holding all the cards doesn't mean much if you're at the craps table just FYI
"Warren wants all college loans to be at a low enough interest rate "

Which colleges would use as an excuse to pay unionized professors more, to jack up tuition more.

If you want to lower the cost of tuition, a good start would be to not have professors getting paid 400k a year to teach one class. I see Warren isn't advocating for that, gee I wonder why...

"Holding all the cards doesn't mean much if you're at the craps table "

That's true in theory. But when I look at what the GOP is holding right now - the Oval Office, both chambers of congress, and a large majority of state governorships and legislatures...when I see all that, I'm pretty confident that I'm not the one who wandered moronically into the wrong table. Have fun making that wrong.

How much do you think a person who is very accomplished in their field should earn?
Is their value somehow less if they educate others?
Is it worthwhile for us as a society to invest in higher education?
My answers are the market will determine that
No
Yes

oh, FFS, iím not saying she doesnít deserve the money. if students want to pay it, then she earns it. but she loses the right to wag her finger at anyone else making a buck off of college students. my problem isnít with what she makes, my problem is that she thinks that only she can make money off the backs of students. thatís the last time iíll say it, if you donít get it you arenít going to get it.
