STUDENT DEBT CRISIS
Student debt rises to its highest & exceeds $1 Trillion. Thus, I’m informing my fellow Latinos on the impact as federal loans are not to be messed with. The government can garnish one’s income tax refunds and eventually one’s Social Security checks unless undue hardship can be proven. FYI less than 1% ever do. Thus, President Obama wants to introduce a Student Loan Forgiveness plan, which reduces payment to 10% of student’s income. After paying consistently for 20 years, then the debt is completely forgiven. Moreover, if the student chooses work in the service industry, his/her debt is forgiven in 10 years rather than 20. With more discretionary income, the government counts on consumer spending to increase. What do you think? Should students be forgiven of their debts? Also keep in mind a large percentage are middle aged.
DO LATINOS PREFER ROMNEY OR OBAMA?
According to polls conducted by Univision, Romney leads Latino vote in FL 46% to 43%, although nationwide the President leads 67% to 24%. Here’s where Romney stands on Latino issues. Immigration: Romney is strongly opposed to any reform, the *DREAM Act and *Sanctuary Cities. Border Security: Romney supports a fence at the border, is for system that makes employers certify workers are documented. Economy: His plan is to stay out of the way of corporations, overhauling federal tax, regulatory, trade and energy policies. He wants to increase trade, energy production, human capital, and labor flexibility by taking tough stances on China and labor unions. Healthcare: Repeal healthcare also known as Obamacare, and replace it with market-based reforms so states and individuals can reduce health care costs.
WHAT IS OBAMA’S STANCE ON IMMIGRATION? FYI this is simply his stance not necessarily what he has done for the Latino community. Currently, Latinos will inform you Obama broke most of his promises and thus why we as Latinos must make it our priority to GET OUT THE VOTE!
