A Georgetown University student blamed the Republicans for allowing student loan rates to double, while another said that all Republicans should be put to death.
Campus Reform interviewed Georgetown students about their thoughts on student-loan reform and the GOP in general. One student gave a startling answer when asked whether he supported the Republican plan.
I dont think I support anything the Republicans do, he said. I think all of them should probably be put to death.
Another student, who was watching the interview, chimed in with, That was a little harsh.
Off camera, the first student said, No, it wasnt.
Another student complained that it was arbitrary and douchey for the Republicans to allow student-loan interest rates to double from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. When asked whether he thought all Republicans were generally douchey, he said, Just the ones on the Hill.
The interest rate jump was hardly arbitrary, however. It occurred automatically after the Senate failed to hammer out a compromise before July 1. Republicans, moderate Democrats and President Obama support a plan to index student-loan interest rates to financial markets, which would keep them low for now while allowing for higher rates in the future.
Liberal Senate Democrats, including Majority Leader Harry Reid, would prefer to keep Congress in control of student loans and have blocked the plan, preferring a flat three-year extension of the lower rates.
Even though the interest rate has already increased, Congress could change it back retroactively, though its unclear whether a deal will be reached by the end of the summer.
Many students, it seems, would oppose the Republican plan, no matter what the plan was.
Oh good, the future of America is just another generation of Low Information Voters without a freaking clue! May God Help Us!!!
Let the bimbos pay taxes for a few years & then get back to us.
Oh, the irony that if this nation survives, give it 20 to 30 years, a majority of these kids will be republicans.
Obviously, the money being spent on these cretins is a total waste. They don’t have even a rudimentary vocabulary to express cogent thoughts. They will have to live off the government to which they are so attached, because who would employ them?
Jawohl Mein Herr!! The Bamastein Brown Shirts ist in ordnung! These asshats would be right at home home with the third reich!
Well, if the people the students expect to pay for their education are all dead, ask the students who is supposed to pay for their education?
I doubt these particular bimbos will be paying taxes any time soon.
More likely they'll go from school to mommy's basement to the unemployment line, thence to the welfare line, with the odd detour to a protest here and there.
they should get some of those free contraceptives and GFT
I think the more important question is who will be there to employ them if not for government. Certainly not private businesses. There won’t e any left.
Yeah, choke on the bills, pal.
It’s OK, kid. Wait until you see your first paycheck and compare gross to net. You’ll come around.
Who thinks like that....
And they all go to daily mass and receive communiion
Well, at least I’m in the clear.
I almost agree with them; they SHOULD kill all the Republicans in government and replace them with conservatives.
Oh, how nice. If republicans died, who exactly is gonna pay for all those freebies for EBT’s, you lazy liberal leeches?
You idiot libs should kiss my crazy cracka’ ass..
Perhaps the student at the ersatz-Catholic university should object to the decision to nationalize the student loan industry in the first place.
