Ryan Vague On Plan To Ease Student Debt Burden

Paul Ryan was vague when asked what a Romney-Ryan administration would do to ease the debt burden on college students at a town hall in Cincinnati, Ohio Tuesday.

Ryan blasted President Obama’s student loan reform as a “government take-over” and cited rising costs as part of the problem but declined to give a specific alternative. “We need transparency, we need competition,” he said. “So we’ve got a number of proposals to help us do that.” From there, Ryan discussed the need for economic growth.
