Ohio lawmakers react to vote on student loans


After the vote Wednesday, Ohio lawmakers pointed fingers at their colleagues across the aisle for the impasse.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-West Chester Twp.: “Senate Democratic leaders seem content to leave students and their families with higher borrowing costs and more student debt, which is shameful and unacceptable.’’

Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Columbus: “The doubling of student loan interest rates was completely avoidable. The Republicans do-nothing solution is untenable. Students and their families deserve access, not obstacles, to higher education opportunities, and in these tough economic times, should not have to bear the brunt of Congress’s inability to take common sense action.”

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio: “Students should not pay the price for obstructionism in the Senate. For more than 360,000 Ohio students, college is more affordable because of subsidized Stafford loans. I will continue working to find an immediate compromise to ensure affordable access to higher education.’’

Jack Torry, Washington Bureau
