Sen. Rubio still paying off student loans, votes for doubling Stafford loan interest rate

Well, this is eye opening. Senator Marco Rubio released a short video statement after Tuesday's vote on the subsidized Stafford loan interest rate, saying in part:
“I think I am one of the only senators here who still has a student loan... As someone with a student loan and with a state with so many people with student loans, I support a hundred percent making sure that the interest rates on student loans do not go up.”
Sen. Rubio voted with 44 other Republicans to block debate on the proposal. What Rubio didn't say was that the Republican proposal would completely deplete a public health fund in order to pay for the bill.
