BOSTON — Both Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren agree Congress should extend the current interest rate on Stafford student loans by one year; if Congress doesn’t act, the interest rate on loans issued after July 1 will rise from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent.
Warren weaves her support into her stump speeches. At a rally in Dorchester, she told the crowd she got an affordable public education because the government invested in programs that helped her:
I’m worried that mine is a story that is embedded in time. I grew up in an America that was investing in kids like me and I worry that we are turning away from that.
