Partisan Battle Over Student Loans

Student loan interest rates are the latest issue to be caught up in partisan Congressional gridlock, but U.S. Senator Dick Durbin believes the issue can be resolved before a July 1st deadline.


That’s when rates on some federally-subsidized student loans will double, unless Congress takes action.
