Rep. Cooper Statement on Student Loan Interest Rate Break

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman Jim Cooper (TN-05) issued the following statement after voting against H.R. 4628, which would extend current subsidized student loan interest rates by cutting a critically important fund for chronic disease prevention and public health.

"Keeping student loan interest rates low is really important. Doubling of those rates this summer would be a disaster. We should be able to keep rates low without adding to the deficit and without harming American health care. It's up to Congress to find better budget offsets fast in order to keep student loan rates low."
