Subject: Protect our students from the predatory private loan industry

Dear Friend,

Americans now owe more money in student debt than credit card debt, with recent college graduates on the hook for more than $1 trillion in unpaid loans.

Many of these loans - about $150 billion worth - are private loans, which have outrageously-high interest rates and are usually extended under harsh terms without basic consumer protections, resulting in a crushing financial burden on college students and graduates. Worse yet, unlike credit cards and other similar types of debt, a law pushed through Congress by former President George W. Bush prevents students from discharging private student loan debt through bankruptcy proceedings, which gives special protections to the private loan industry at the expense of students and recent graduates.

Fortunately, two members of Congress - Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) and Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL) - - have introduced legislation entitled the Private Student Loan Bankruptcy Fairness Act of 2013 that would treat privately issued student loans the same as other types of private debt in bankruptcy, providing much needed relief and consumer protections to working-class college students and recent graduates.

I just signed a petition urging my representative to co-sponsor this common sense legislation and give college students and recent graduates who are struggling in the weak economy the consumer protections they deserve. I hope you will do the same.
