All the in-depth analysis of President Obama’s executive order on student loans in a text discussion. WELCOME TO THE FUTURE!
What do I have in common with the most powerful man in the free world? We both have cell phones with a text plans. So I figured we use them to talk about the executive order signed by President Obama yesterday handing out relief on student loans.
Me: B-Dawg!!! how’s it hangin’?
Obama: ummm, hey? who is this? how did you get this number?
Me: not important man. you serious about that student loan stuff though?
Obama: yeah, it’s an executive order. seriously, who is this?
Me: sweet, because I got a lot of student loans.
Obama: well, you still have to pay your student loans. that doesn’t change. you just get a better loan rate.
Me: wtf, man! what good does that do me?
Obama: well for one you’re now qualified for the “Pay As Your Earn” program. that means a cap on student loan repayments at 10 percent of your income and forgive any unpaid debt after 20 years.
Me: WELL THANKS OBAMA! LOL!!!!!
Obama: yeah. real funny.
Me: but seriously, I don’t know what any of that means?
Obama: don’t think too much about it. it’s a good thing.
Me: how did you pay off your student loans?
Obama: wrote a few books.
Me: you think people will buy a book that I wrote?
Obama: probably not. you can always get a job?
Me: brah, I got a liberal science degree. can’t see much job opportunities in my position.
Obama: LOL! liberal science!?! you can’t blame me on that one.
Me: this coming from someone who decided to become a “community organizer” after he graduated? LOL!!!
Me: Obama? B-Dawg?
Me: no worries will talk later.
