Obama's Student Loan Plan Mirrors the Housing Crisis

As I wrote some time ago, the market for student loans is a mess that is rapidly heading for a painful correction. The Obama administration’s misguided quest to provide higher education for all has distorted the cost calculations of college to a devastating degree. Yet, rather than recognize the dangerous bubble he has created, the president is now doubling down—backing a policy dreamed up by Elizabeth Warren to allow the refinancing of student loans en masse at current interest rates, and making up the cost with the “Buffet Rule,” a special provision that would ensure that millionaires pay a minimum income tax rate.

Doubling of Student Loan Interest Rates Not What It Appears

After Congress failed to reach a compromise before the July 4th recess, student loans subsidized through the Federal Direct Stafford Loans program will see interest rates double from 3.4% to 6.8%. Pundits and the media have been reporting this as “Congress’s failure to act,” and a “catastrophic increase” on students. However, there are several reasons this “failure to act” is a good thing.
