Thank you @DevinScillian for getting the question out there! @SenStabenow answer not very reassuring, but hoping for the best! Stoping of interest on student loans short term help - go bigger - help our college students!

How does @GaryPeters propose Michigan voters BUY healthcare from the exchanges which are notoriously unaffordable with no jobs and no money? Maybe Michigan needs a public healthcare model the country can follow
