Toll Free 1-877-568-9800 News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) Pew Report Shows Increase in Those with Student Debt and Loans In Boston, October is "Col- lege Month" in the Boston Public Schools. To mark the month, Mayor Tom Menino stopped by the Philbrick Elementary School in Ros- lindale to talk with students about college and the impor- tance of college. I hope he talked about the cost of a college education and choosing college degree pro- grams wisely. Too many stu- dents graduate with use- less degrees in a depressed jobs market. Many students take on too much debt and never catch up because the jobs they thought were there for them post-graduation never materialized. Even as households across the country have reduced total debt in recent years, the share that owes student loans has skyrocketed as of the latest report out of the Federal Reserve. The data is not good news for many. Nearly 19 percent of house- holds in 2010 have outstand- ing student debt up from 15 percent in 2007 and nearly double what the number was in 1990. All this bad news was released recently by the Pew Research Center. Among households earning less than $21,000, outstand- ing debt represents 24 per- cent of household income. The report makes the very important point that the low- est income families bear the heaviest burden of debt rela- tive to income. Given the fact that the job market is weak for recent college grads, many families have begun asking the ques- tion, "Is college worth it?" Most often this question is being asked because of the existence of increasing stu- dent loan debt. Perhaps the mayor better make sure all the facts are presented to students and their parents before parents set out on the long road to debt. Who are the Real Building Wreckers? The Boston Herald recently showed a photo outside the Tsongas Center in Lowell before the Brown-Warren debate that took place on October I st. The photo showed members of the Building Wreckers Local 1421 march- ing with a banner in support of Elizabeth Warren. As I viewed the newspaper photo, I wondered who are the real building wreckers? Aren't they liberal Democrats like Obama and Warren whose liberal policies are killing the middle-class with taxes and regulations? Who can afford to buy new homes today? Who can afford to sell them either? The hous- ing market hasn't looked good any more than the un- employment numbers that keep staying above 8 per- cent month after month after month. I don't understand the fas- cination by the trade unions leadership with liberal Dem- ocrats who keep using them while doing very little for them. I think, in the end, rank and file union mem- bers will be voting for Scott Brown, the only union mem- ber this year running for the U.S. Senate here in Massa- chusetts, just like they did in 2010! Bob Cousy Backs Brown Liz Warren can have Micky Ward. Who cares? Scott Brown can now count on Boston Celtics legend Bob Cousy being on his team. This endorsement is a valu- able assist as the Hall of Fame point guard now has Scott Brown's back. I am old enough to remember those days when Bob Cousy was the man on the parquet at the old Boston Garden back when the Celtics were cham- pions season after season. They played like a winning team working together. Now Brown and Cous will be a winning team as Scott takes on. the professor who still doesn't know who she is or maybe she does and just ain't telling. Brown loves to play b-ball and this year is running front and center for the people's seat once again.
