Corporate lackeys rush to defend trillion-dollar student loan debt

Corporate mouthpiece Charlie Sykes sent marching orders to right-wing bloggers to defend the big banking industry, but One Wisconsin Now is not going to bow out of this fight.

Over the weekend, our “$1,000,000,000,000 IN STUDENT LOAN DEBT – BIG BANKS STOLE OUR FUTURE” banner at the Occupy Milwaukee event was featured in a photo in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Not too long after, corporate mouthpiece Charlie Sykes sent marching orders to right-wing bloggers across the state, all to defend the big banking industry and to try to put out the growing resentment of Americans mad as hell at big banks for stealing their futures.

The fact is, the financial industry is making bank off the backs of students, it needs to end, and we’re not going to bow out of this fight.
