Reid Statement On House Republican Student Loan Bill

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following statement on the House Republican student loan bill introduced today:

“Democrats are opposed to shortchanging an important program that supports crucial efforts to prevent disease and protect against public health emergencies just so Republicans can continue protecting millionaire tax dodgers. The best way to pay for legislation that will keep student loan interest rates from doubling is to close a tax loophole that allows wealthy individuals to avoid paying the same income taxes that middle-class Americans pay.”
