Cantor: Taxing The Rich Is Off The Table, But Making Students Pay More Immediately Is Fine

Cantor, at the White House for budget negotiations, apparently proposed that students who take out student loans should immediately start paying interest, rather than getting to make payments after graduation:

As Monday’s White House budget talks got down to the nitty-gritty, Eric Cantor proposed a series of spending cuts, one of them aimed squarely at college students. The House majority leader, who did most of the talking for the Republican side, said those taking out student loans should start paying interest right away, rather than being able to defer payments until after graduation. It is a big-ticket item that would save $40 billion over 10 years.

Yes... let's destroy high education even more... I mean, it's not like the US needs people with high education to compete on the international job market uh?

Higher cost of high end education = higher drop out rate and higher debt rate... And you CAN'T default on student loans.

Cantor, you are SCUM.
Please verify you're human:
