Young people don't vote: Is it your fault?
Young people don’t vote, just like they don’t save for retirement at age 21 or worry about interest rates. That’s what they do because youth isn’t known to plan for the future.

Dept. of Ed. scamming student loan borrowers
Debt relief companies have been using robocalls to drum up business from student-loan borrowers, but the practice resides in a legal gray area.
