Call to Keep Student Loan Rates at 3.4%

Mitch McConnel (R-Ky) the republican senator from Kentucky,  thinks that his party and his goals are more important than America, will have no qualms about letting student interest rates double.  Mitch has only one policy goal;

Official portrait of United States Senator (R-KY)Mitch McConnell:
 “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

From Rebuild the Dream:
On Tuesday, the Senate will vote on whether the interest rates DOUBLE on subsidized Stafford loans -- loans that go to millions of students every year. This is the most important moment in this campaign. Can you help with the final push?
Tell Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell to vote to keep the interest rate at 3.4%. Sen. McConnell has the most influence over Republican Senators. Calling senators actually makes a difference; they notice when they get a LOT of calls about an issue. It works.
Call Senator McConnell at 202-224-2541.
Use the script below:

Hi, my name is [NAME]. I live in [CITY AND STATE].
I'm calling to tell Senator McConnell to support the Stop the Student Loan Interest Rate Hike Act, and don't double student debt interest rates! This bill keeps interest rates affordable on subsidized Stafford loans at 3.4%. Please support this bill!
Subsidized Stafford loans benefit almost 8 million students every year. In some cases, students could pay up to $5,000 more through the repayment of their loan. This is unacceptable, especially now that student debt has hit $1 trillion -- more than credit card debt.
OPTIONAL: This issue is important to me because [REASON].
Thank you.
