Student Lenders’ Slippery Jobs Numbers | FactCheck.org

Under the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act — which passed the House by a vote of 253 to 171 in September before being rolled into the reconciliation bill — the government would expand its role in making low-interest student loans, cutting off the subsidies it gives private lenders such as Sallie Mae (SLM Corp.) to originate the loans. By cutting out the middle man and making all the loans directly, taxpayers would save $61 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

When asked WHY Congress is doing this, John McCain says that the reason is that “they have subcontractors in every State in the Union…most Congressional Districts.” Kit Bond (R) Missouri gives his reason why Congress SHOULD continue forcing the Pentagon to BUY more C-17’s THAT THEY DO NOT NEED. Seeing as this has been an ongoing problem, it would seem that Americans should find out who the others are in Congress that are forcing this issue (past and present/whether Republican or Democrat). I certainly agree that “There does appear to be some Political Engineering” going on here. I believe Americans should be interested in the real reason certain Congress members are forcing this issue, and just how they are personally benefiting. We the people should intend to find out before voting in November 2010. 0.000000 0.000000 February 2, 2010

Our government has a history of being run by Idiots and Jackasses. What makes it even worse, is that many of them were dishonest, greedy, self-fullfilling TOLLHEADS! A CrackerJack box full of CrackheadJacks!

What is poor Obama supposed to do with the inheritance of that historical mess anyway? To make matters even worse for Obama is the fact that many of those Idiots, Jackasses, and TOLLHEADS, (Democrat or Republican), are still in their elected offices; including those others still remaining that collect a paycheck from their employer -THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS. flag1Photo Source Unknown
