House Votes to Stop Student Loan Rates from Doubling, Cut ObamaCare Slush Fund WASHINGTON, DC (Apr 27) House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement after the House approved the Interest Rate Reduction Act (H.R. 4628), legislation by Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL) that would extend current student loan interest rates by cutting spending from an ObamaCare slush fund: ?Students and families are struggling in President Obama?s economy. Nearly half of college graduates are unemployed or underemployed, and laws like ObamaCare have only made it harder for small businesses to hire them.

Taking Obama to the Woodshed Over Student Loans
2012-04-21 16:44:00
What ever Barack Obama may be, smart he is not. First, Obama, in all his not so infinite wisdom, nationalized the student loan business. Now Dim Won, b/k/a Obama, is moaning that student load recipients are stuck with just one lender, to wit the federal government, and must pay what ever price the government demands, from Detroit Feee Press: President Obama kicked off a week of appeals to young voters today by urging Congress to maintain the interest rate on student loans, keeping the costs of college stable. “If Congress doesn’t act, on July 1st interest rates on some student loans will double,” Obama said in his Saturday radio address. “Nearly seven-and-a-half million students will end up owing more on their loan payments.” In a free market, consumer s of student loans could shop for their choice of lenders, and even change lenders, refinance, if their old one got too greedy.¬†¬† Alas, Dumbo loathes free markets.
