From Sam Granato: Bennett Misses the Mark on Student Loan Reform

Like many Utah friends, neighbors, parents, grandparents, students, and thoughtful citizens, I am disappointed by Senator Robert Bennett’s article in the Salt Lake Tribune on Sunday, November 15.

As the 2010 election draws near, it seems Senator Bennett is more interested in placating the extreme right than in helping Utah’s hard-working taxpayers. He said he will not support a bipartisan bill to help college students struggling to deal with ever-growing education costs. Senator Bennett must know that education is critical to the nation’s success, and that more and more college students find it necessary to obtain student loans.

But it appears his fear of Utah’s extreme right minority trumps what is surely common sense with regard to student loans.
