Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have proposed measures to help students suffering from burdensome college debt. "One credit I would give Donald Trump is that he has spoken more about student loans than say Mitt Romney," said Susie Poppick, sr. money editor at Mic. "[Trump's] plan primarily focuses on colleges and getting the government to pressure colleges to cut costs, which certainly is one part of the problem." Poppick also pointed to Clinton's proposal of tuition free in-state college for students whose family earns under $125,000 a year. TheStreet's Scott Gamm reports from Wall Street.
