Write Your Representatives to Keep Student Loan Rates Low

Dear Representative Murphy

I’m writing to ask you to think of a clever way to keep student college loan rates low.

It is not at all surprising that Republicans are suggesting “raiding a slush fund,” this “slush fund” being money set aside for preventative medical care for women and children.  Please remind me why we’re not supposed to believe that you Republicans are waging a war against women, when your leaders like Boehner want to fund student loans by defunding medical care.

Why aren’t you funding student loans by defunding subsidies to industries making obscene profits, like much of the oil & gas companies and factory farms?

Middle class and poor college students need cheap college loans.  It frequently looks like the Republicans want a permanently  uneducated underclass without health care.  Remember, while you have won your district in the past, many of the people you are supposed to be representing are not Republicans.
