FILE - In this May 8, 2012, file photo political science major Clarise McCants of Philadelphia is flanked by Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, left, and Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., right, as she talks about student loans on Capitol Hill. The student loan bill underscored the current partisan positioning in Congress, that's producing little that will become law. If want to keep federally subsidized loan interest rates from doubling on July 1 for millions of college students, and you're a House Democrat, you had to vote for a Republican bill, financed by obliterating a preventive health program created in the Democrat-cherished health care overhaul; if you were a Senate Republican, you had to support a Democratic bill, financed by boosting payroll taxes on upscale owners of some privately owned companies, a nonstarter for most Republicans.
