Of the hundreds of interviews done on the subject of the student loan debt crisis, there has never been one like this. On this week's Opportunity Plus Podcast, Dr. Wayne Johnson talks with Jeff Jones, a native of Marietta who has taught English to Japanese students in Tokyo for more than a decade.
Jones is one of the 1.8 million Georgians who owe more than $60 billion to the government on their student loans. Jones' story is typical of the 44 million student loan borrowers across the country. Jones had a dream of being a chiropractor, he borrowed heavily as a college student and got his degree. Then, his life path changed.
Over the course of his teaching career, Jones reached the point where he was out of debt, had no credit cards and paid cash for everything. The only thing he could not fix was his student loan debt. He started paying, defaulted, rehabbed the loans and started paying again. Jones is still paying.
Listen as Johnson, the man Tucker Carlson said knew more about the student loan debt crisis than "any living American," talks with Jones about student loan debt crisis -- "the tragedy hiding in plain sight -- and how his Opportunity Plus Plan for Higher Education can help Jones today and prevent another high school graduate going forward go to college debt free.
1.8 million Georgians can send Wayne Johnson to the U.S. Senate in November. Get involved.
