Keep student loan interest rates low to help new grads

2012-06-28T00:00:00Z Keep student loan interest rates low to help new grads

My granddaughter just graduated from Purdue, and she fortunately was able to land a job at Purdue University. But she has a large student loan to pay off, her new salary is a starting salary, and she is struggling to pay for her living expenses, credit card and student loans, etc.

She can't afford any more debt, and if this interest rate goes through for the student loans, it will make life so much harder for her.

She also needs to stay on her parents' insurance since the university provides insurance only for salaried employees!

Please help her and all graduating students who are in her same boat. Don't let them drown!
