Perception and Then the Reality of the $1.2 Trillion Student Loan Debt Crisis

It's all how we are taught to perceive a person who has integrity. The problem I see is that the word
integrity is used so freely that its lost its true definition. Moral upright, honesty, decency, honor,
soundness are just a few of the words that help to define integrity.

Our President and the Congress told us they saved student loans in the last hour of July 2013 when they came to terms. The student loan interest rates will increase, and parent's that take out student/parent loans will now pay more, but very little was mention about these increases our legislator's said had to be made in order  for the legislation to pass?   There was not one word about the even larger increase in profits the banks and special interest  will make off this new deal.  Integrity?

Now before I go any further I believe in the free market system we have in America. I don't believe that huge profits should be made off educating our children the very future of our Great Country.
We are a free society at least that is what we're told. If that is the case then why do just a select few
control our Great Country?  Integrity?

I believe we should always offer our neighbor a hand up, but not a hand out!

Our politicians make sure our big business, special interest groups are given $Billions in tax incentives! Then GE, Whirlpool, and 100's if not 1000's of other companies can then send their huge profits offshore, and the jobs our country so desperately needs are then sent overseas.
When these same tax incentives could be used to help Small Business to grow and to help to pay off $1.2 in student loan debt. Growing our economy.......... Small Business is the back bone of America........ Integrity?

I ask you to ask your Congressmen and Our President why.............Integrity?

The original purpose of  Project Tuition Reimbursement to find solutions and still is our main focus!
When I use "our purpose" I am referring to you and me I can not do this alone without your support and feedback.

Our children are our Great Country's greatest Asset... it's not...... GE or The President......  Integrity?

Our poor are given just enough to survive, but no real creation of jobs to help our poor get the hand up needed to be self-sustainable......... Integrity?

Our Congress took away student loan bankruptcy, but yet a gambler can declare bankruptcy? Major Corporations have taken our small business tore them apart repackaging them then bankruptcy is used again! Now only a select few make huge profits and these huge profits are more important than the country as a whole.......... Integrity?

It took $7Billion to elect the President and Congress the last election. They owe so many special interest groups they have no true concern for the American Citizen any longer.........    Integrity?

The $1.2 Trillion student loan debt crisis is growing faster than ever before.

You need to remember the housing bubble busted at $1.3Trillion! there was property to help the economy to rebound what is going to used when the $1.2 Trillion Student Loan Debt bubble bust?

Have I become cynical I believe so ,but I do believe there can be real change

If our leaders want to truly lead our Great Country
New laws need the approval and have the full support of our President and Congress!...... Integrity?

1) The Sequester starts with the President and Congress
2) No retirement package (The President and Congress were never intended to be a career!)
3) Salary changes based on the salary of an average American Citizen
4) Health insurance only while in office
5) No more than $1million spent to get elected
 (Still too much! The American People should determine the amount/ no more elections bought!)

Serving America should be an "Honor Not a Privilege"

I have no hidden agenda I only request every child to be afforded the best education available, and the opportunity to                            live ..................................................The American Dream!

 I promise you this is worth 2 minutes of your time!

The most important part of being a person of integrity is being able to admit when your wrong!
