Yesterday the House of Representatives passed the Student Aid & Fiscal Responsibility Act, with the promise of cutting out the middlemen of college lending and ostensibly reducing the burden both on beleaguered college students and tax payers. Clearly college students, who are going into record levels of debt to finance their educations, need some kind of relief, but can this Act deliver when it makes the federal government the prime source for student loans? We get both sides of a surprisingly contentious debate.
