He's going to nearly double the child tax credit for those making under 85K and wants to put caps on student loans so that payments would be only 10% of the borrowers income and debt would be forgiven after 10 years of payment if the borrower works in public service and after 20 years for all others.

I'm actually very excited about the student loan cap. What do you think?
Update: Since when was making 83K considered lower-middle class?
Update 2: And honestly, the 3K you'd get per child on your taxes pales in comparison to the cost of having a child per year. 3K isn't even enough to cover half my child's daycare expenses...so I doubt that the masses will start popping out kids to get a tax credit...
Update 3: Since when is a college grad who has accumulated an excessive amount of debt due to the increasing prices of education considered a loser? Maybe when it goes to $1000+ per credit hour, you'll think differently. Then, only the rich will be able to get a college education.
Update 4: I have student loan debt now in excess of 70K so any break I can get, i'm taking it. If that makes me a horribly unreasonable person, oh well.
