Samantha Hillstrom

Samantha, production assistant for CNN, racked up $115,000 and even for someone who got a good-paying job like she did, the payments are just too much:

"I am 23-years-old, two years out of college and I am sitting on $115,000 of student debt with only roughly 12 years to pay it off because of the financial crisis. How much does that make my monthly payment, you ask? A whopping $1,200 a month. And let’s just say my lifelong dream career in television doesn’t lend itself to that. The only option my bank is giving me is to go on 'graduated repayment plan.'"


  1. Feier,

    Get the facts about student loans, and how they differ from all other loans due to shameless lobbying by big banks.

    If what is happening to millions of students happened to you at their age, you'd be out in the streets flying your freak flad like a hippy.

    Come to

  2. Feier,

    You need to rethink what you are saying.

    Terrorism is the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims. This best identifies the student loan industry.

    A patriot is a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors. This definition is closely associated with the group Student Loan Justice.

    The student loan industry uses economic terrorism against unsuspecting, patriotic students trying to better themselves and their country.

    Student loan company CEOs and lobbyist for the student loan industry are the terrorists. They use any means necessary to economically rape the innocent through political manipulation of our US Constitutional rights.

    Anyone who stands up against this terrorist attack on our Constitutional RIGHTS is a patriot in every sense of the word.

    I support you Feier in the spirit of what you are saying, but you must identify us for what we truly are.

    The folks at are patriots.
