This is a pet peeve of mine. I don't know why it isn't a bigger issue in elections. We have burdened a generation of college students with a Trillion Dollars in college debt and charge them the highest interest rates in America. This is madness and will weaken America's economic future. Turns out they are crooks:

Last month, the Ed. Department’s Inspector General’s Office issued a scathing report revealing the department’s student loan arm, the Office of Federal Student Aid (FSA), failed to properly oversee all nine student loan servicers that handle the accounts of over 42 million federal student loan borrowers. The audit directly contradicted the Trump administration’s arguments that borrowers receive excellent customer service and protection from substandard practices, stating the FSA is “not holding servicers accountable…[giving] the impression that it is not concerned with servicer noncompliance with Federal loan servicing requirements, including protecting borrowers’ rights.”
