This is just insanity. Let the nonsense stop. They can rationalize ALL they want…but that doesn’t change the nuts and bolts of it all. When people like Paul Ryan and the rest of the lemmings who follow along with his now approved Budget proposal – allowing student loan interest rates to go up is PRECISELY the kind of thing that Republicans consider to be “bigger government”. There is no freedom in paying double the interest rate on a loan you’re going to have until you become a senior citizen in some cases.
STUDENT: My question for you would be, would you support closing corporate tax loopholes to pay for that as a revenue raiser?
RYAN: Nope. Well, I support closing tax loopholes for tax reform. [...] So that’s what we want to do with all those corporate loopholes is do that, and with the student loan bill let’s cut some spending because that’s more spending, let’s cut spending that is lower-priority spending to address this higher-priority need.
