Please call Congressman Chris Smith and ask him why?

Student loan debt is a struggle for many NJ students and families.  Why won't he support common sense legislation that helps us. 

Local Government is Government.

I have disagreed very largely with the lack of charity involved in many of your posts. However I am in complete agreement over the completely callous and cynical way young people have been exploited by the financialization of the education industry. It is utterly shameful and borderline criminal that graduates with poor job prospects are being anchored with debt that by all appearances will take several decades to pay off. Even worse is the inability to discharge this debt through bankruptcy filing. I agree totally that this should be dealt with; we should be protecting young people not well fed middle aged bankers.

Hey Joe, Glad we can agree on something. What you wrote is so true and well said. Government is Local Government. If we want to make a difference in how we are represented by our Government, we must get out and vote in Congressional elections and know the values and voting record of our Congressman. Do they represent our values and have they voted accordingly? We also have the right to call our Congressman and let them know when we are not happy and it is their job to meet and listen to their constituents, us. We believe that Smith stopped listening some time ago. He has done some good stuff for Vets but his fanatical obsession with overturning a women's right to choose has gotten in the way of his governing. He is up for re- election in November and perhaps District 4 will feel it's time for some change.
