Here's a clue,'tard:
Which gets more money to the students,$200 billion spent DIRECTLY on loans and grants, or $200 billion after 10% is siphoned off the top by private firms before such loans and grants are made?
For extra credit, tell us which of the above most Republicans, including Bush, preferred??
LOL
Actually, they wanted to tie the rates to US 10yr government bond rates.

And if you know anything regarding the bond markets..........YIKES. Look out. Would hate to be a student.

Especially when looking at the margin rates of 2.58% on the 10yr treasury bond. Last time it was that high. Financial collapse 2008. Prior to that. 1987. Prior to that, 1979. See the trend?

BS from you, Spambot. What do you expect, Holder to call up your Teabagger buddies and say 'Oh, come over and have some punch and cookies, we're investigating you and we'll share everything with you!'

LOL...moron. Do you even know what an "investigation" is??

Liberals blame GOP, Fox, Drudge in Obamacare fiasco.

The pro-Obama media watchdog Media Matters Wednesday, defending the administration's surprise move to cancel implementation of major elements of Obamacare, said that Republicans were to blame and accused conservative media leaders like Fox News and the Drudge Report for ignoring the GOP's role.

In a release, the liberal group said that Fox and Drudge instead charged that the one-year delay was political with the goal of pushing off the expected initial implementation disaster until after the 2014 elections.
