    There is a problem when you keep wanting to spend the same money more than once.

    Just sayin'.

    Let me get this straight, democrats actually plan to cut student loan rates by using Social Security and Medicare to pay for it? It must be a joke or a trick. Democrats had two years with a solid majority and a former junkie president who would sign anything. Why didn't they do it then instead of bailing out Solyndra?

    How they would pay for it? The /Feds interest rate is functionally zero isn't it?

    Ohh you mean how they would reimburse the banks for their lost proft?

    Desperate times call for desperate measures and the incoherent plan the democrat party laid out as a political IED turns out to be a another dud. An interesting point is that democrats actually think tapping the almost broke Social Security and Medicare systems is a legitimate way to fund their never ending wish list of social schemes. That's scary.

    People who don't understand that if you borrow money you have to pay it back and pay the interest have no business being in higher education. They are too stupid.

    If a student wants to go to college let em go to a bank for a loan.

    The Govt shouldn't be in the business of using SS, Medicare or taxdollars for student loans.
