Struggling to repay student loans is something that unites many of us. Across the country, almost 40 million people are trying to repay $1.3 trillion in student loan debt.
Here in Michigan, 1.5 million people are trying to erase more than $39 billion in debt.
Earlier today, U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Michigan, was on the campus of the University of Michigan, where she hosted a roundtable on college affordability.
Dingell is one of the sponsors of a bill in the House called the "Bank on Students Emergency Loan Reinforcement Act."
