Navient has taken advantage of too many hard working people in our community who are now saddled with unaffordable student loan debt. Forgiving student loan debt is good for families, small businesses, and the economy as a whole. This is a good step in the right direction, but we must continue to push for student loan forgiveness for everyone.
I hope y’all are hungry because Virginia’s GOP is serving up a buffet of ridiculousness.
