Thank you for putting pressure on Congress by signing the petition. Fortunately, we are one step closer - the US House of Representatives approved a plan last Friday to keep the interest rates at 3.4% for another year!
It is critical that we keep pushing. Unfortunately, there is disagreement between parties over how to pay for the extension. We only have a few months for Congress to agree on a plan, or the hike in interest rates to 6.8% will go into effect on July 1, 2012.
Please invite your friends to sign this petition to demand that Congress agree on a plan that will keep student loan interest rates at 3.4%!
