I’m not asking for a handout or for sympathy. But I am trying to make aware the outrageous interest rates on student loans.

Ok - but didn’t you know the interest rates BEFORE you signed for the loan?  Yeah, they’re crazy rates, I’m not debating that.  Actually criminal rates if we lived in an ethical world.  But what I AM debating is that how is it Chases’ fault when you’re the one who decided to borrow the money in the first place?  People make choices - this person made the easy and immediate gratification choice to borrow money, and now is responsible for paying it back.  Again, how is this anyone else’s fault but their own?
