On student loan debt: In August 2013, President Obama spoke to the students of SUNY Buffalo about the cost of college in the United States. While calling higher education "the single best investment you can make in your future," Obama noted that over the past 30 years, the cost of tuition had gone up 250%. He then surprised his audience by telling them that he and Michelle Obama had only just finished paying off their student loan debt when he was elected to the Senate, despite their high-paying careers.
