In less than one week, nearly 100,000 people have signed the petition in support of the newly re-introduced Student Loan Forgiveness Act, now called The Student Loan Fairness Act (H.R. 1330)!

If you haven’t already signed, please do so right away.  The only reason you’re receiving this email is because you signed on to support the original forgiveness act – the new bill is nearly identical, but with several improvements (permanently capping interest rates at 3.4%, limits on the capitalization of interest, ensuring that forgivness under any repayment plan is treated as non-taxable income).

If you already signed the petition, I cannot stress enough the importance of sharing the link to the petition with everyone you know:

The petition in favor of last year’s Forgiveness Act reached over 1.18 Million signatures and I absolutely believe we can do it again.  I need each and every one of you to take a few moments of your time to email your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers and tell them about the importance of this bill.  To quickly and easily share the link to the petition on Facebook and Twitter, please use the following links:

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.  Now, let’s get to signing and sharing!

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
