You don't address the question but instead reply with an inaccurate blanket statement. Great. I'm dealing with someone who might be illiterate.
Graduate school loan debt is flexible due to programs such as IBR which allow the payments to shift with your income. You will be stuck paying off for years, I haven't denied that. I also haven't denied that a lot of people will be screwed. The odds are against T30-100 grads who graduate with 100-200k in debt. It is a livable screwing though and some of them will succeed in the short term, and many more will succeed at something in the long term. And some will die in the poor house. It's a known risk.
You call that flexibility? A 10 year repayment plan as your only option of paying off debt is flexibility?
