Romney backs extending lowered student loan rates

(CNN) - A day before President Obama is set to make a series of appearances on federal student loan rates, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Monday that he supports extending lowered rates on a popular federal student loan program for low- and middle-income undergraduates.

"With the number of college graduates who can't find work or who can only find work well beneath their skill level, I fully support the effort to extend the low interest rate on student loans," Romney said before a campaign event in Astor, Pennsylvania. Asked late last year about the rising cost of higher education, Romney suggested then that market forces would lead some colleges to lower the price of receiving an education in order to compete in attracting cost-conscious students.

    Thought you weren't running Rubio. Sounds like another "flip-flopper" to me or just another liar.

    Romney will campaign Monday in Pennsylvania with another senator and possible vice presidential pick, Marco Rubio of Florida.

    Mitt wastes more money on these foolish "pander-props" then he brings in.

    -------------------------------------------------
    What will Rubio tout? His "apparent" unwillingness to be Mittens "The Changeling" Robmey's V.P.? His less than stellar tenure as a Senator? His convoluted, re-created Cuban origins? His charges of unethical conduct vis-a-vis personal expenditures on the government's dime, and the hiring of friends and family on his government payroll?
    So many fine attributes to contribute to Mittens' list of non-attributes. They'll make a great pair on the trail.
    Go Bobble-Head! Go Robmey!! Just Go!
    Obama 2012. Seriously America.
