There he goes again — Mike Huckabee right on student loans

Posted By on Sat, Apr 21, 2012 at 6:02 AM

Credit where due for Mike Huckabee:

He endorses President Obama's support for continuation of federal subsidy of college loans against the alternative, doubling the interest rate paid by students for money borrowed to advance their education.

It should not happen, because it would be the essence of a tax increase. When the economy is in the kind of shape that it is in right now and particularly when it is very difficult for a lot of people to get to college and more importantly to get a job when they get out, the worst thing you can do is to say while you are down, here is number 13 shoe, let me put in your back side. That is just not going happen.

Huckabee, as you'll see at the link, then goes BAD wrong, by saying this relative pittance for struggling college students should be accompanied by continuation of Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
