Tell Republican Senators: Don't Raise Student Loan Rates

Campaign for America's Future [email protected] via bounces.salsalabs.net

Horrible news. A Republican Senate deal has been struck that could saddle the next generation with even more student loan debt.

A vote is imminent. We need to move fast to protest it.

CLICK HERE to tell yourRepublican senator: Vote “No” on raising student loan rates.

Instead of subsidizing low rates and investing in our children’s future, this deal would let the market set the rates.

Instead of ending the practice of government profiting off of student debt, this deal lets the government profit more.

Republican Senators claimed to be hopping mad that the recent gridlock let rates double from 3.4% to 6.8%. But this deal sets a cap on rates at a brutally high 8.25% for undergrads and 9.5% for graduate students.

CLICK HERE to tell your Republican Senator: Vote “No” on raising student loan rates.

The vote is coming soon. This will be hard to stop. But we have to make it clear this deal is not acceptable to students and families across the country.

Tell your Republican senator to vote against the deal and pass a one-year extension of the 3.4% rate instead. That will give the Senate time to get serious about making college affordable.

We need your voice now.

Well frankly I would rather my tax dollars go to the wealthy that actually produce something and provide jobs than to a bunch of liberal arts majors that are never going to produce anything and will only leech of the productive their whole lives. If you retards want to fuss at somebody how about those worthless PhD professors that sucked you in to borrowing money to support the educrats.

You're the idiot, idiot! What an embarrassment to Johnson City you are. You obviously don't pay any taxes, are a bit of a redneck, and jealous as hell of people who have more than you. The truth is student loans are nothing more than taking someone else's money and loaning to another. If my money is being loaned to someone else, then I demand some accountability for the use of it. If you can't understand that, then you are most probably a lazy freeloader whose lot in life is in a beer can.
Duh

So the Democrats let you freeloaders borrow a bunch of money to give to their educrat friends, to earn degrees that are worthless in the real world, you idiots were never smart enough to do a cost benefit analysis (oops sorry you are liberal arts majors so you may have to look that reference up) and you think the republicans are keeping you stupid. You morons beg to be left stupid and you want everybody to support you in your stupidity. Go flip burgers with your little humanities degree.

Too late. They dropped the bomb. If the American people would ONLY PSY ATTENTION FOR SIX MONTHS. They would see they pass two policies only. The ones that hook the the voters. They act as if they oppose abortion and gay marraige. That gets them their votes. But every piece of legislation benefits their TEAL employer, the wealthy...... They wouldn't challenge roe vs wade for anything. It's their vote getter.

Most of the kids default on the student loans anyhow. The degrees they might get are useless. Maybe it is a ruse to make the rest of us feel ignorant. What ever happened to on the job training? I've seen these graduates with their "6 Sigma Blackbelt degrees" and can only conclude that they are as full of shit as the plan that creates them, but they are pulling in the big bucks. What a joke. I really get sad when I think of the hoops students are required to jump through. All this forcing classes on a student to make them a "more rounded person" are bullshit. Case in point...requiring a student of business or science to take a course in art. They carve a boat out of a bar of soap and play the game. Bullshit!

Please set the drugs down (or at least use spell check) before posting. If this a typical example of your ability I wonder what got a semi-illiterate like you into college. Bet your resume is a real attention getter. Stop wasting your money on school and check out burger production as your future.
