Petition Background

Senator Rubio recently voted against the Student Loan Affordability Act, which aimed to keep interest rates low for students for another two years. Instead, he voted for another proposal that could see interest rates skyrocket up to 8.5%.

51% of students have student debt upon completion from college in Florida (where the average student loan debt is $25,600) and 462,048 students in Florida are Stafford loan borrowers.

Students in Florida can't afford more debt, and on July 1st, student loan interest rates are set to double from 3.4% to 6.8%. We need Senator Rubio to stop voting for proposals that will hurt students in Florida and the rest of America.

El Senador Rubio acaba de votar en contra del Acta "Student Loan Affordability" (Accesibilidad de préstamo estudiantil) que tenía el propósito de mantener los intereses bajos para los estudiantes por dos años más. En vez de eso, el votó por la otra propuesta que pueda ver los intereses dispararse hasta 8.5%.
