Crushing student loan debt is already causing our young people to put off things a college education should make easier -- like buying a home or starting a small business. Congress’s inaction could add as much as $1,000 to that burden in interest fees.

Letter to
Speaker John Boehner Congress
Stop student loan interest rates from doubling from 3.4 to 6.8 per cent. Increasing burdens on young graduates will make them less productive and less able to stimulate the economy.
