I think we'll reach an agreement, but the president wants to make a few more political points here before he does. This is kind of ridiculous. We've all agreed that we want to fix the problem. ...I think the reason the president hasn't reached an agreement yet is they wanted to try to squeeze a few more political rounds out of this by trying to make it look like the Republicans are somehow anti-student. This is an agreement that will be reached. It's a manufactured controversy in the first place and certainly the student loan interest rates are not going to go up at the end of the month.
