GERALDO RIVERA (CO-HOST): I think the whole area of the student loans has to be rethought along the lines that we've been talking about. The kids get way too much money. They get money to sit on their asses and enjoy themselves for four years. That's -- seriously. And colleges give professors, you know, seven, eight hundred thousand dollar salaries. You know, it's become obscene. But I do think that you do need reform -- limit the amount that a kid can borrow. You've got to make sure that not -- that there's competitive rating, rates, and that you have to allow bankruptcy. You have to allow bankruptcy.

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): And make good decisions.


JEANINE PIRRO (CO-HOST): Here's the bottom line. You have a contract. You have a contract with the person who loaned you the money. If you can't pay it, that's your problem. Get a job like everyone else. You want to do a favor for people? I have an idea. Why don't you do a favor for people like veterans who are committing suicide, who don't have a home to live in? And then we have rely on the great organizations like Tunnels to Towers to make these small homes, these smart homes for veterans. And then, you know, we've got senior citizens who are living on a fixed income when inflation is higher than it's been in 40 years. So these lazy kids want to have their -- want to have their loan canceled, nonsense. Pay your darn loan, get a job, and be quiet.
