Jesse Ventura on fixing college debt: ‘Get out of the wars’

Towering student loan debts leave many people asking how to tackle the growing crisis. Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura says the answer is getting out of military conflicts and bringing the money back to America. He talks to RT’s Ed Schultz about his plans to fix the problems.

RT's Ed Schultz sits down with Webster University president Elizabeth J. Stroble, who says that outgoing undergrads generally find themselves with $25,000 worth of debt, about 10,000 less than the national average. Stroble explains how universities are trying to keep their tuition prices at modest levels to help balance the scales.
