You may or may not have seen this news, yet, but mid-year student loan interest rates resets for Stafford Loans could hit a lot of people during a time when our economy is still recovering.  Neither political party wants to see it happen.  However, the question is what change will they make to offset keeping the rates lower?  They would have to do something if they are going to keep the rates low.  One thing they discussed this past week was reducing the tax breaks for S Corporation owners.  That would just shift the hit from people with student loan interest to business owners and is not something I want to see.  For the time being, the Republicans are blocking that move.  It will be interesting to see where this heads.
