The petition reads:

“Elizabeth Warren is right: students should get at least as good a deal as the banks we bail out, not interest rates 9 times as steep. Support the Bank On Student Loan Fairness Act and stop giving law-breaking banks preferential treatment over hard-working students.”

petition-warrenWe’ve all heard the stories or lived the hardship ourselves: young Americans trying to move our economy and country forward, but being saddled with so much student loan debt it’s nearly impossible.

Now, if Congress doesn’t act, our already-too-high student loan rate of 3.4% is about to *double* to 6.8% – while banks keep their sweet 0.75% deal.1

ENOUGH. Students deserve the same preferential interest rates that the Big Banks get. Let’s get this done.
