Mr. CLARKE of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, today this House voted to extend the cap on student loan interest rates, or at least certain student loans, for an additional year. That's fine, but it's only a Band-Aid. Over 1 million Americans, and this is just one box of many that contains petition signatures, say that they want more relief. They want their student loan debt cut, reduced, and excessive debt forgiven.
So let's listen to more than 1 million Americans who want the student loan debt forgiven in this country so we can give people hope and create jobs.
