Interest Rates Double to 6.8% For College Students On Federally Backed Loans

Congress has been debating this issue for quite some time but could not come up with anything both sides could agree on, instead they both blamed each other in a game of chicken to see who would budge as the clock for interest rates to double drew closer.  In the end Congress decided that it is more important for them all to take a nice vacation and break for holiday on the Monday of the week.
