I want to serve humanity, and it is absurd that I am getting saddled with a debt that is more than I have earned so far in this life. It seems unlikely given the situation that I will ever be able to repay it, and just that thought is burdensome. Primary care providers are desperately needed. But I'm not sure I want to be under the gun for the rest of my life to do it. Or do I? Maybe I am a masochist.
HR 2492 is bipartisan and will be coming to a vote sometime soon, so your contact to representatives could make a difference. The Income-Based Repayment program sets lower monthly student loan repayments and forgives both debt and interest after 25 years. The amount forgiven would be taxed as income to the borrower. The idea is to wipe the slate clean for responsible borrowers.
Please take a moment to write to your representative: Urge him or her to support H.R. 2492 and ensure there's really a light at the end of the tunnel.
