Using bankruptcy to solve student loan problems

It is almost impossible for debtors to discharge student loans even though they can wipe out most, if not all, other types of unsecured debts. Currently, student loan debt exceeds credit card debt by 28% with almost one-half of all American families facing paying off student loans.

By reforming the bankruptcy code, it may be possible to help debtors suffering from student loan debt while also improving the economy.
