Politifact Virginia: Senator Mark Warner on student debt

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

 

In this week's Politifact Virginia Report, student debt is sky high. Senator Mark Warner used this startling number in a recent stump speech. 

"Right now, America has $1.1 trillion of student debt. That's more than credit card debt," said Warner in this YouTube clip. 

 

Is that true? Are we paying more in student loan debt than we are credit card debt? According to Politifact Reporter Sean Gorman that is absolutely true.

"The amount of student loan debt in the first three months this year was $1.1 trillion dollars in the U.S. Meanwhile credit card debt was just over $650 billion dollars," said Gorman.
