Re: Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012

The bill also allows the public sector to retain employees that would ultimately have to work in the private sector long-run to make enough money to pay off their student loans.  If the current 10 year loan forgiveness program didn't exist, I would not be able to afford to work at the not-for-profit I am currently with.  I factored in the money I would be saving in the long-run on my student loans when I decided to stay with the company after graduation.  I could easily make 20% or more working in the private sector, but was able to keep a more rewarding job I liked because of the loan forgiveness.

TU (5/14/14): 796 (Inquiries; 8/23/13)
EQ (3/23/14): 791 (Inquiries: 8/23/13)
EX (9/24/13): 780 (Inquiries: 7/2/12; 11/20/12; 7/30/13; 8/23/13)

Goals: No new inquiries for 2014, 800 for all CRs by 12/31/14
