It can also saddle you with so much debt you can't even think about buying a house, according to a report by the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss student loan debt -- well over a trillion dollars in the U.S. and growing -- and how it impacts the 40 percent of adults under 30 who carry college debt.
