    The premise of this post is false. Advocating for increased taxation on the rich, is not advocating for the middle class. Advocating for low interest rates on student loans effects a broad spectrum and therefore not just the middle class. It’s no different than raising taxes on just the rich and calling it equitable taxation but you do that too.

    It has been amply demonstrated by economists that government-provided low-interest student loans are what is driving up the cost of higher education in the first place. Stafford Loans are just another failed progressive program that have harmed those they were intended to help.

    “It is in our national interest to try and keep student loan rates low”
    Is he serious? Didn’t Reed see what happened to the housing market when the Fed kept interest rates artificially low?
    “ensure that multi-million-dollar earners pay at least a 30 percent effective tax rate”
    But it won’t do that, and I’m guessing Whitehouse is smart enough to know that, so in reality he’s trumpeting this nonsense to try to drum up support for his campaign.
