Bruning is running for U.S. Senate. He sounds like just the type of person I want on the Hill!!!
Here's the funniest quote from that article: "Nelnet is a good, homegrown company that employs hundreds of Nebraskans in good jobs," Bruning said. Haha. He forgot to mention that they make their money through usurious practices and have turned millions of educated people into debtors for life. Yeah. Great company.
The company was recently sued by a former U.S. Department of Education researcher named Dr. Jon Oberg. Oberg filed a false claims suit against Nelnet and other student lenders. He accused them of taking advantage of a loophole and essentially defrauding taxpayers of $1 billion. The case was settled with Nelnet for $57.8 million.
