U.S. Senate Republicans blocked Democrats’ proposal to cover the cost of a one-year freeze in government student loan interest rates by requiring some professional services firms to pay withholding taxes on their income.

Our economy is collapsing. How can we fix it? Oh I know! Let’s make college students pay for it!
