Fresh Off Hikes to Student Loan Rates, Congressional Republicans Vote to Abolish Food Stamp Program

On Wednesday, Republicans in the Senate voted to double undergraduate student loan interest rates from 3.4% to 6.8%, making it more difficult for people to lift themselves out of economic struggle by earning a college degree.

One of the transformations associated with earning a college degree is decreased dependence on government services like SNAP, the […]

House Republicans Try To Impose Big Government To Profit Big Oil

Coalition Of Mostly Republicans Opposes US Involvement In Syrian Civil War
