    Get used to games being played by both parties with student loans. It's what happens when the federal government takes over an entire industry. Expect similar horror stories concerning peoples health care now that obama has taken over that industry too. Why some people don't get that the federal government is the last entity anyone should ever trust with their livelyhood is mind boggling.

    Why, why do student loans rates hang in the balance? Because these low life politicians are playing games with us. Why isn't the interest rate already fixed or tied to some index? Things like this always come up at election time so one party can blame the other to buy votes. We need to stop this garbage and clean house starting with the white house, the senate and the house. Don't for a party, vote for a platform and if a candidate won't tell you how he/she stands on taxes or deficiit spending, don't vote them. We need to stop the federal government's intrusion into our personal lives this November.
