Student Loan Rate Bill Passes In The House: Rates Remain The Same

This is big news - so glad that they passed this bill last week. I want to thank all the activists and politicians who have worked tirelessly on this battle. It is one that we've won TOGETHER. Special thanks to Senators Begich, Reed, Brown, and Harkin - we need more people on the Hill like you. This is only the beginning of more triumphs for students and student loan debtors.

Here's a link to the AP piece about the passage of the bill. Check out the picture of Boehner below. He looks glum, but that's because he doesn't have the interests at students at heart, and he lost this battle. Never has had a concern about students and student loan borrowers, and he never will. That's why he needs to be ousted. And I am all about bipartisan work. I work with Republicans too, but this guy has got to go!

People, let's keep on fighting! We're on a roll. Stay tuned for even bigger news on my end this coming Monday . . .

Im not celebrating. Its even worse for graduate students now. they wont even qualify for subsidized student loans and that interest rate did not budge.
