Kline Appears on "Fox and Friends" to Discuss President's Controversial Student Loan Plan
WASHINGTON, D.C. | October 31, 2011 -
House Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-MN) today appeared on "Fox and Friends" to discuss President's Obama's plan to bypass Congress and unilaterally alter federal student loan policies.
“I just think this is a mistake," said Chairman Kline. "It is very confusing. I’ve talked to a lot of people about what the president’s proposal is and it’s very difficult to figure out. Some of the changes are going to affect a small group of students; some of them are going to affect a larger group of students. All of it, in fact, is going to encourage more borrowing and I’m afraid it’s going to leave the taxpayers holding the bag.”
The president's proposal raises a number of important questions. On Thursday, Chairman Kline wrote to Education Secretary Arne Duncan requesting more information about the proposal, including its consequences for the nation's taxpayers.
