Last summer, as Congress debated whether the government should continue offering very low interest rates for some student loans, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) claimed to be one of the few senators who was dealing with the problem firsthand.

That was indeed the case. Rubio's financial disclosures for 2010 and 2011 show he had between $100,000 and $250,000 in student loan debt, which he attributed to covering the cost of law school. At the time, there was only one other senator with student loan debt -- Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) said he owed between $10,000 and $15,000.

Rubio, however, is dropping from the list -- in December, he announced he had paid off the debt, thanks to sales of his book. But, he said, the issue remains important.
