More Bullcrap from the Repugs, about the student loan program.

They are on the Senate Floor whining about cutting the banks out of the Student Loan Program.

What a joke!! I worked for too many years at one of the "too large to fail" banks. You know what we did when a student came in for a loan?
We gave them a Federal Form to fill out, and the Federal address of where to mail it in. If they had questions, we gave them a Federal phone number to call. We were NOTHING but a middle man, and the banks got paid god knows how much to do nothing. Obama was right on ending this waste of taxpayer money.

DO NOT listen to the pigs trying to tell you how awful the Dems are to get rid of the middle man - the banks. It's just another one of their many, many lies.

Just wanted to let you know.
