Obama moves to ease student loans burden

US President Barack Obama signed a memorandum on reducing the burden of student loans, making it easier for up to five million people to pay off college tuition debt. The action, which does not take effect until December 2015, will allow more people to limit repayments of federal student loans to 10 percent of their monthly incomes.
