Senator Lamar Alexander gives the Republican Weekly Address
“Some Senate Democrats want a short-term political fix that will benefit only forty percent of new student loans, but they stand alone.
Between now and the end of the month, Senate Republicans will work hard with the President and the House to produce an agreement that ensures all student borrowers benefit from today’s low interest rates. That would mean that 100 percent of all new student loans made this year would have a rate below five percent. ”
