I'm ground to balk at your comment on 1000$ a month college loans and say I'll have paid back somewhere in the range of 120k in 6 years. Most of the kids I went to school with are doing very well and I'd exclude myself and them from this discussion.
That 38k can be reduced drastically, maybe you missed the part where I said I feed a family of 4, own a home, 2 brand new cars, and my bills are less than that....
you probably didn't miss it, you just aren't very smart.
