White House Office Hours: College Affordability

Ed. Note: This live session of Office Hours has concluded. View the full question and answer session below or at Storify.com

This afternoon, President Obama is traveling to UNLV where he’ll push Congress to pass his proposals to create jobs and help middle class families. Specifically, he’ll speak about his proposal to stop student loan interest rates from doubling, which would hit millions of hard-working middle class students and their families with the equivalent of a $1,000 tax if Congress doesn’t do its job and work together on a solution to keep rates low.

Tune-in to the President’s speech at UNLV at 3:50 p.m. EDT on WH.gov/live, then join us for Office Hours at 4:30 p.m. EDT. Roberto Rodriguez, Special Assistant to the President for Education Policy, will be on Twitter to answer your questions about student loan interest rates and Income Based Repayment (IBR).
