56. I'm for a flat tax for people that get student grants and loans.

If a person accepts a pell grant and/or student loans then they would pay a 3% flat tax on all income until the age of retirement.
No one has to worry about paying thousands every month any more in loan repayments and the government will get their money back. The average workers makes $44880 per year so they would have $1346 deducted every year. Present student loan recipients could change to this system if they choose. We have to pay for government benefits. This is no different then the FICA tax which is a pay as you go system. Only those that benefit from the entitlements will have to pay for it.
