Lawmakers to Vote on Overhauling Student Loans

Lawmakers in the House will vote this week on legislation to overhaul the student loan program.

One out of every eight former students defaults on student loans, and get branded as deadbeats. It's no surprise that many of them have low incomes. Libby Lewis
