The StudentDebtCrisis.org Chatroom is Now Open!

Ever feel as if there’s nobody you can talk to about your student debt situation?  Feeling alone with nowhere to turn?  At StudentDebtCrisis.org, we know how difficult it can be for some folks to navigate the world of student loans all on their own.
That’s why we just installed a brand new chatroom on our website.  We envision this chatroom to be a safe, judgement-free space where you can talk honestly and openly about your student loans with similarly-situated people who understand exactly what you’re dealing with.
The chatroom is open 24/7 for everyone to use, however; we also plan to use this space to have moderated chats on specific topics from time to time.
The topic of the first moderated chat is: The Consequences of Defaulting and How to Avoid That Fate, which will be held on Wednesday, September 18th at 6pm EDT (3pm PDT).  Please mark your calendars accordingly.
Thank you, as always, for your continued support.  Now, let’s get to chatting!

Don’t forget: there’s still time to submit your own video to the #OutWithStudentDebt Video Project!  Record a 1-2 minute video of yourself talking about how student debt has affected your life, upload it to YouTube using the hashtag #OutWithStudentDebt in the title of the video.  That’s it!  Simple, quick and easy!

Small business and ACA

Hangout with the SBA and Cover Oregon to find out

The third in a series of three Google+ Hangouts brought to you by the SBA and Cover Oregon will discuss what small businesses need to know about Oregon’s Health Care Marketplace, Cover Oregon, and how they will access coverage through the web portal. Cover Oregon will address specific small business needs including:

  • How to request real-time carrier quotes including available plans and rates
  • The process to search for and select a medical plan and dental plan for employees
  • How to set up the open enrollment period for employees
  • The process for e-signature and carrier submission

Have additional questions about how the health care law will impact your business in Oregon? Watch the earlier Hangouts that covered specific topics of the Affordable Care Act like the Marketplace and the Small Business Tax Credit.

The first Hangout described the new Health Care Marketplace in Oregon, Cover Oregon. Through Cover Oregon, employers and individuals will be able to shop for health insurance plans and access financial assistance to help pay for coverage. The second Hangout covered the small business tax credit available under ACA and the eligibility requirements to qualify for it.

Join us September 17, 2013, 12:00 – 12:30 p.m. and learn how Cover Oregon can help you.

Banks taken to court!

Yesterday, the NY Attorney General announced plans to file a lawsuit against HSBC for ignoring the law and hurting families in foreclosure. Big banks like HSBC think the rules don’t apply to them — not acceptable!

Over 40,000 people have already joined Elizabeth Warren in saying that we need to protect the public and break up the big banks.

Can you add your voice in support of the Brown-Vitter bill to break up the big banks? Click here to sign the petition.

Thanks! — Adam Green



Stand with Elizabeth Warren


Elizabeth Warren did it again.

In another moment sure to go viral on YouTube, she grilled Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on the Obama administration’s opposition to breaking up the big Wall Street banks that are “too big to fail.”

Warren endorsed breaking up the big banks and preventing future bailouts. Senators Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and David Vitter (R-Louisiana) have introduced a new bipartisan bill to do just that.

Watch Elizabeth Warren in action — and join her in urging President Obama and Congress to end “too big to fail.” Sign our petition supporting the Brown-Vitter bill.

Warren pointed out that the largest financial institutions are getting bigger and bigger — 30% larger than they were when they wrecked our economy.

She asked Treasure Secretary Lew, “How big do the biggest banks have to get before we consider breaking them up?” He had no answer.

The media and political insiders need to see the public quickly rallying around Warren in order for her grilling yesterday to make a lasting impact.

Watch Warren in action and sign our petition in support of breaking up the big banks.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.
