This week’s looming July 1st deadline to stop federal subsidized student loan interest rates from doubling has once again demonstrated just how big of a difference in priorities that Democrats and Republicans have. If Congress does not act this week, the interest rate on federal Stafford loans will double for more than 160,000 North Carolinians, and more than 7.9 million students nationwide. That means an additional $1,000 every year, on average, in interest costs – about $127 million per year in total for North Carolina students.

Its running here in North Carolina.
