Tell House Republicans: Don't let student loan interest rates double
In 2007, Democrats and Republicans worked together to pass a law cutting interest rates on federal student loans from 6.8 percent to 3.4 percent. That law will expire on July 1, 2012, causing interest rates to revert back to 6.8 percent.
Congress could keep this from happening, but now Republicans don't want to. Further, instead of taking action to keep interest rates from doubling, the Republican-controlled House Committee on Education and the Workforce just set up an email account dedicated to soliciting negative feedback the Obama administration's handling of federal student loan programs.
Don't let Republicans get away with this. Send a message to this new email account telling House Republicans that the real problem with federal student loan programs is how Republicans are doing nothing to keep interest rates from doubling. (Email can be edited)
