Solving America's Student Debt Problem

Hosted by

The collapse of the for-profit Corinthian Colleges may cost American taxpayers $3.6 billion — even as declining taxpayer support has driven tuition sky high at public universities. Student debt is more than a trillion dollars, and it's already an issue in next year's presidential campaigns.

Also, political horse-trading goes into overdrive for a trade deal vote.  On today's Talking Point, a 6-year old American citizen who refuses to speak is collateral damage from policies that require her undocumented parents to leave the country. We hear about "American Exiles and Orphans."
