The aticle noted, " fifty-one-year-old Charlene Rose. Rose isn’t able to save much for her retirement because half of her paycheck goes to paying student loans—her own and her children’s." One must ask why? Why does she owe anything for her children's student loans? The children should be paying back their own student loans. If they can't afford to then this is a question of the value of student loans, not a question about Social Security. What are her priorities? Her own retirement or the education of her children in areas that have no jobs? Let's not confuse the issues involved. Neither she nor her children have any financial acumen.
