Student Loan

A loan one uses to pay for postsecondary education. A parent, guardian or the student may take out a student loan. In the United States, the federal government subsidizes or guarantees some student loans to enable more people to attend college. Interest on student loans is also tax deductible in the United States. However, because universities in the United States are often so expensive, many students spend a significant portion of their income on student debt service.

Americans can't even go to the doctor without signing a government-mandated privacy form and then having their intimate information compiled with information from other patients and reported to the government and other third parties by medical billing and coding clerks in a backroom--clerks who outnumber doctors and have a certificate in medical billing from a diploma mill, the cost of which was likely paid with a government tuition loan.
