    It is so sad that in this country, those of us who want to better ourselves
    through a good education, end up losing big time but for those who drop out
    of school and decide to do nothing with their lives, well, they get free
    housing, free healthcare, welfare and so on. What is wrong with this
    picture?

  3. As big a problem as Student Loans are, it’s a joke that she took out 50,000
    to become a social worker. It’s no secret that a Social worker does not
    make much money and it seems she was dead set on this career. This is a
    case of someone lacking common sense when taking on a financial burden of
    this magnitude.

    Mr. Sahara is a hero!

  5. Maybe she should go after the deadbeat father of her child. Oh wait… he
    is a bum with no money. Never mind. Another reason why women need to be
    more careful of the choices they make, specifically, the men they get
    involved with.

  8. Rent or buy? It’s a question many Americans are facing now, especially as
    homebuying season gears up. A caller to The Dave Ramsey Show has $245k in
    student loans and is considering buying a home. Dave suggests she use her
    income in a *much* different way!

  9. lol slaves 

  10. Man, it can always be worse no matter what situation we find ourselves in.
    Being young myself, I feel sorry for this girl.

  11. Buy a house with this much debt? Realtor’s of course will say Yes if you
    can get into a mortgage.

    I had to watch this video with a title like that.
    Slow your role my friend. This is a big deal…

    The only problem is that she can’t apply $110K for 2.5 years and pay off
    $245K in loans, unless she doesn’t pay taxes. He does make a good point
    that if they’re used to living off his income, then they could apply all of
    her income to the debt, but it will take more than 2.5 years.

  14. Dumb question.

  15. Bol! At his reaction!

  16. HELL NO!!!! YOU CAN’T BUY A FREAKING HOUSE! oh, and by the way, I may not
    be the sharpest knife in the drawer, hell far from it! BUT….. I wouldn’t
    even go $245,000 into debt for a house! $110,000 is what I would spend or
    go into debt in for a single family home. Really!
