Hashtag Per POTUS : #DontDoubleMyRate

Tweet away for those who have several more years of student debt to pay off.

To get students involved online, The White House is launching a related social media campaign with the hashtag #DontDoubleMyRate.

A press release from the White House argues that the interest rate increase would affect over 7.4 million students around the country and add an average of $1,000 to their education debt.

According to the Denver Post, there are 166,693 students with Stafford loans in Colorado and the extension of the interest cuts would save borrowers about $961 a year.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/23/president-barack-obama-to_n_1446487.html?ref=elections-2012
