    and they were not as bad as this for PLUS loans.  They used to be around 4-5% and float with caps around 8.5%.  He changed them to a fixed rate with the same cap, I think.  Now were talking a cap of 10.5%.  Good thing we got a Dem President and Dem majority in the Senate.  Would you have ever imagined 4-5 years ago that student loans would be worse under a Democratic administration?

      •  Yep, no reason to try and maybe educate people (0+ / 0-)

        about what is possible.  Dems are losers.  No stand, no guts and no glory.
