over two months from now, that rate cut expires. and if congress does nothing, the interest rates on those loans will double overnight. >> what is your point? >> it's funny we had someone that would con sponsor a bill that would fix this problem. it's representative gary peters. good morning, representative. >> good morning, stephanie. >> obviously you are a cosponsor of this bill to fix the problem. tell us about it. >> i'm working very closely with joe out of connecticut to get this bill moving, to take it happen as the president mentioned, interest rates are going to be doubling on july 1st to college students going from 3.4%, to 6.8% which just adds additional debt on to students. and as you know it's pretty tough to get through college right now for most kids if you don't take out a loan.
and the loan amounts continue to go up, and have interest rates double at a time when you can get a mortgage rate at around 4%. and treasuries are at 2% interest. to have that go to 6.8% on top of loans is unconscionable. this should not be a partisan issue, but unfortunately we have not been able to get republican support here in the house. we have signed up 139 cosponsors. it continues to get momentum. but we have to get this passed. >> it's funny, we had someone call last hour, and they echoed this republican talking point it is irresponsible to take on this debt. this is what we're talking about. we're talking about getting a reasonable interest rate.
>> that's right. >> yeah, absolutely and, you know, the fact that folks have taken on debt if you think you can just go to college and have someone pay for it, that's not the reality for most kids in america. we had the chair of the subcommittee on hire education, representative fox who said she has no sympathy for students who take out loans because she worked her way through school back in the early 60s. but that's not the reality today. today students need to take debt if you are a working class family, and you should not be gouged on the penalty. people aren't asking for a handout, they are just trying to move forward to get the education to be successful. >> how out of touch did that seem with mitt romney saying i certainly hope you are shopping
for a cheaper college or don't expect the government to help you? it is someone who is just so intrinsically out of touch. >> absolutely. and that is what is happening even in state universities across the country. states have been cutting back on their support. as a result of that, the cost of college has been shifted on to the backs of students, because the states have been cutting back. and it hits disproportionately those students from middle class families. and they are just saying give me a decent interest rate a rate that is a market oriented interest rate which is 3.4% right now. and they will pay back the interest. if the government has to borrow the money, we can borrow it. if we're borrowing at 2% and giving it to the student at 3.4, that's still a positive for the
taxpayers. and we all agree without a college education today it's very difficult to have a middle class lifestyle. >> the president seems to shockingly speak much more authentically to the kids. >> i -- i didn't just get a policy briefing on this. michelle and i. we have been in your shoes. we didn't come from wealthy families. >> yeah. i loved the part where he said check this out, i'm president. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> i just paid off my loan eight years ago. but it is the reality that most american families are going through. >> there's no question. and student debt has been increasing. most students have to take out loans, and they know that their future is tied to getting that education, and we should be supporting young people who are saying i want to go to college work hard. i have the ability to do it and if we cut back on the ability
for young people to go to college, we'll lose the race against the chinese and indians and other countries around the world. we're competing in a very competitive global environment. our edge is education. and we have great educational institutions in america and people have to be able to take advantage of it. >> so the president, you know, talked about these republicans as you said being against this. and once again using it as a bargaining chip for offsetting budget cuts. >> here they take this hostage and last week we passed -- i think it was $42 billion tax cut or multi-billion dollars tax cut for millionaires basically. half of that tax cut went to millionaires. but when it comes to a middle class kid just trying to get a regular interest rate on their loan, republicans want to throw up all sorts of barriers.
it's unbelievable. >> congressman am told you have to go because you have important congressional business. what could be more important than me, but -- >> very few things stephanie. >> exactly my point. thanks for this bill, and thank you for taking time for us. >> thank you very much. >> well, speaking of the children -- [ screaming ] >> i believe children of the future, as you know particularly debbie's child ♪ i believe that children are our future ♪ >> in oklahoma. hi, debbie in oklahoma. >> hi, stephanie. love your show. it gives me something to laugh at in the morning, which is the republicans. >> yeah. >> i was watching my current tv like i do every night and my grandson came in and saturday down and watched it with me. and he said you know what, nana i'll be 18 before the election.

>> he is frank lee now too. >> yes. >> 18 members are retiring or seeking other office. democrats have at least 22 seats open due to requirement or seeking other office. debbie watson schultz said boner knows that means they are vulnerable. >> but it has always been true. those tea party republicans -- those elected in 2010 had no idea what they were doing. it -- talk about waking up you know and looking at sonny and cher, they truly had no idea, and they have governed that way. they have nothing to run on, which is why you are starting to see tiny little things possibly trying to come out of the house so they can go back and say we did something. but they -- that republican class is as vulnerable as i have ever seen. they need to flip 25 seats.
i think there's a very real chance that the house goes back. the problem, of course is the senate. where it is 2 to 1 up democrats over republicans. >> right. >> so wait until you have a mitch mcconnell as majority leader. >> oh, god. >> gack. >> a very slow-moving senate. >> my head is retracting in my suit. >> a lot of lettuce. >> yes. >> help me on i'm on my back. >> david couple of things i thought were hopeful and surprising. president obama highed with romney in arizona. >> yeah, those states are -- colorado nevada -- again, we're looking at a latino vote. because mccain who had a home state advantage that probably neutralized it, but arizona
might have been deployed four years ago. all of this depends on a very specific strategy. they either have to increase their percentage not very much of the latino vote for romney or they have to depress the vote. and one of two things is going to happen. that's what they are trying to do, because they know if the president gets the same three-quarters of the latino vote, which he is currently getting, if that holds, he wins the election. >> yeah. we were just in wisconsin with the sexy liberal. wisconsin saw the largest decrease in employment in the last 12 months. he promised to create 250,000 new job in his first term. they dropped nearly a full percentage point. and we are seeing this in other
republican-lead states. >> and yet we are trying to cost them one more job so who are we to talk? >> yes. >> but so many of those jobs and let's be honest about this. the job loss in this country. there would be job growth across the board were it not for public sector jobs. those horrible firemen and policemen and teachers and sanitation workers, all of those people who do those terrible public service jobs those are the ones that scott walker and his people are scrubbing. >> yes. the largest percentage decrease is in wisconsin. and walker said we saw a net increase in jobs this year incorrect, of course. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> by we, he means something other than wisconsinites. but win to the spring states
ohio lost 95,000 jobs. chris christie saw his state lose 8600. and wisconsin dropped 4500. >> posterity is for the little people. >> yeah. is this an indication that the president is leading in swing states? >> it's not. but i just talked to a very very senior advisor to the president who says all of these polls right now -- and this is the thing we need to be worried about, because we're sitting here in april, and if the election was held today, the president would win, but it is not going to be held today. and all of those swing states will be close. >> it will come down to independents, i suppose as usual. >> yes, and how much of our base turns out. remember, 2012 again, it's young people who turned out over 65%
to the president are at any enthusiastic level they are at today because a lot of them can't get jobs. they are saying it doesn't matter what i do. that is a big deal. so you are seeing the president hit these college campuses and talk about student loans. apparently romney -- i won't call this breaking news, but he is telling people privately, because he has only one decision now to make. this is not -- you know where to give his next speech or what dressage horse to dress. >> yes. >> this is who is he going to pick as a running mate? >> right. >> and the two he most wants to pick are either marco -- wait for it -- rubio. or chris christie. >> oh wow. >> chris christie cream. >> those are his choices. and those are two very crucial
states. florida and new jersey would be in play. >> wow. >> he is not going to win new jersey. >> that really wouldn't please the base would it? if either one of them are chosen. >> if it comes down to independents, it might help. and if we're talking about latinos, it could help. >> all right. david we have to run -- >> run! run! run! >> wow.

member. >> thank you. rod is it me or does the president seem more comfortable with the young people than mitt romney does. >> he has been our president since 2008. the reaction to the president on jimmy fallon was incredible. nothing but the president slow jamming to the news. >> yeah. >> i can't see mitt romney doing that. >> and i loved him talking about student loans at the university of north carolina with the tar heels, and he is like can i get an amen! and it's like amen! and you try to imagine that moment with mitt romney. did you see he forgot and then came back to the microphone oh
yeah. that student loan thing, me too. isn't it most telling when you see mitt romney saying i hope you are shopping for a cheaper college or i hope you don't expect the government to help you. >> you got anymore good news pal? >> yeah. >> it's a remarkable contrast between the two campaigns. a few weeks ago a college student asked mitt romney in chicago what is his plan, and he literally said shop around. that's his answer. >> that's the pointer sister's plan, shop around. >> yeah. >> president obama has made this a top issue of the campaign. he is treating young people like a legitimate voting block, and a powerful political voice, and i think young people are responding very well it to. they take him seriously and at
his word that he is fighting for them. >> a lot of students say the same thing. they are not asking for a handout, asking for a fair interest rate is what they are asking for. it's like when people say social security is an entitlement. yes, it is. we paid for it. >> yeah, and obviously the rate would double and we're talking about young people struggling to get back on their feet after this recession. and you have mitt romney talking out of both sides of his mouth. he endorsed the ryan budget just a few weeks ago. and he supports the congressional reasons on that. and yet at another date he has said something different. the president has made this very clear and made this a top issue
that this has got to be dealt with. so, you know the president and top democrats are taking this seriously, and i don't think mitt romney really is. >> these are the kind of letterings i'm getting this morning, i have become an elitist who wants her child to get an education. thanks for the handout republicans. i mean -- right -- go ahead. >> yeah. on top of that. i mean it's also interesting because not only, you know kind of shop around and leave young people to have to look for -- try to make ends meet to pay for their college and loans, but at the same time romney and the republicans want to repeal a health care bill that just got young people health care for the
first time. and essentially their plan is to repeal that too. it's no wonder young people are not responding to mitt romney. you know, the republicans want to go in the opposite direction from the progress that obama has made in the last couple of years. >> rod you hear a lot on tv that there's an enthusiasm gap, and the kids aren't going to vote again. what is your take on all of that? >> i think that there's -- young people are dealing with the recession like everyone else. so you are in a different place than four years ago as far as the economy. first and foremost people want to have a job but when you get down to it, and now we have a choice to make. the republican primary was interesting for all of the wrong reasons. talking about -- you know, banning contraception and all of this whacky stuff, and it's
remarkable. some of the turnout in the republican primary was like 2 or 3%, and there's a reason for that -- >> when i was young in the 60s, that would have been a weird conversation to have. >> yeah. we now have a clear choice. it's romney versus obama, i think young people are now taking a look at the situation and thinking oh my gosh do we have a president we kind of like -- we actually really like him, and -- >> look at the alternative. >> yeah. >> i hold you personally responsible for the kids getting out and voting -- [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> and if they don't, my friend -- i'm looking at you -- take you down to chinatown. all right. thank you so much. >> thanks a lot. >> he is a lovely young man. >> what we didn't tell you is he

tucker carlson's comments about the naacp. >> yes. >> i think his comment shows a lot of fear on the part of white conservatives, about the legitimacy of this organization. they don't want to believe african american's grievances at the time. they want to deny and say they are a fringe group. and maybe the only one who is fringe is tucker. >> there you go. guess who else supports the president, the former soviet leader. he said i will support him. and there are still vested interests who want another cold war, and arms race and they will not succeed.
