GOP Approves ‘Cynical’ Bill to Keep Student Loan Rates Low by Slashing Funding to Support Women’s & Children’s Health http://go.usa.gov/ytP

Republican Student Loan Bill: The Wrong Choice | Democrats -Committee on Education and the Workforce

Alert: The House of Representatives will begin debate this morning on the Republican bill to slash funding for women's cancer screenings and childhood immunizations in order to use that funding to keep student loan interest rates low. Needless to say, this is a terrible idea. You can watch the debate this morning on C-Span.

There is still much more action to be done to keep rates low for 7 million students. Stay tuned for updates.

We all agree; we need to take action to stop the interest rate on need-based student loans from doubling this July. But we should not ask women and children to shoulder the cost.
