Marco Rubio, a presidential hopefulfor the 2016 elections is now targeting something that all young voters feel very passionately about-higher education.
But not out of the woods yet.
Until Republicans show they will fight, expect more costly Obama executive actions.
Obama lays claim to the recovery.
The Senate on Wednesday voted not to move forward with a student loan reform bill from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a proposal that would have allowed an estimated 25 million people to refinance their student loans.
President Obama will make his Tumblr debut on Tuesday at 4 p.m. to answer questions about higher education.
President Obama will issue an executive order Monday afternoon that will permit at least 5 million people to cap their student loan payments at 10 percent of their monthly income.
The federal government posted a $41.3 billion profit on student loans last fiscal year, while student debt soared past $1 trillion.
President Obama has gone on a college-affordability blitz over the last week, preaching to choirs of students that his new proposals will make college cheaper and easier to pay for.
