The burden of student loans has soared more than 500% since 1999, leaving many new graduates buried under massive debt and struggling to make payments and cover basic necessities.
Now Congressional Republicans are ready to allow student loan rates to rise to levels that will make it impossible for future students to buy homes, cars, or even get out of their parents' house. But with youth voters likely to be a determining factor in the election, we have a real chance to make Republicans do the right thing.
Congress is running out of time, so we need to make Republicans in Congress get on board and extend the lower interest rate on federal student loans so that struggling students don't get a summer surprise that doubles their future loan payments.
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your senators and representative.

"Extend the federal student loan rate-reduction before students pay the price."
