Congresspeople’s kids’ don’t need to pay student loans: truth or myth?

A myth gets recycled from time to time which boiled down into the the following question and answer:

Q: Is it true that members of Congress, their staffers and their family members do not have to pay back their student loans?

A: Not true. Some congressional employees are eligible to have up to $60,000 of student loans repaid after several years — just like other federal workers. But that’s not the case for members of Congress or their families.

A Snopes article covers the same topic and says pretty much the same thing.
