The Lakeland Ledger could not print all of my Guest column aka OpEd, since I went to 777-words (a little bit over the suggested 700-word max), but I had to make sure and be diplomatic and respectful towards you in the execution of my constituent request, here:

* "Republican Congressman breaks with party, admits college loans deserve bankruptcy," By Gordon Wayne Watts, The Register, Published: Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at 12:34 p.m.

ORIGINAL POST was this:

This was a Tele-conference (telephone) THM (Town Hall Meeting) with my Congressman, U.S. Representative Dennis A. Ross, Republican, representing Florida's 15th U.S. Congressional District. The question featured here was regarding the oppressive nature of Federal Law regarding College Loans... TRIVIA: Student Loan Debt has, for the 1st time ever in America, surpassed Credit Card Debt, exceeding $1 Trillion U.S. Dollars - that is a Thousand Billions -and a 'Billion' is a Thousand Millions -a lot of dough.

This was a 'Public' THM, and it is so denoted with a legal disclaimer at the beginning of each THM (a sample of which is included in this video).

Important: While the GOP has been 'good' in some areas (trying to get Government out of the business of Higher Ed loans, which, of course, tempt colleges to raise tuition to match increased borrowing ability), Republicans are usually *against* students having the same Bankruptcy rights that they, themselves -and their rich cronies -enjoy.

Therefore, we must remember to pray for leaders, like Rep. Ross, who are brave enough to "go against the grain," to defend the weak and powerless against indentured servitude and other oppression.
