Obama Grandstanding on Student Loans

Neal McCluskey writes here about a big, gushy event Obama has planned where he’ll surround himself with college students and say how concerned he is about them and the interest rate on their federal student loans. Neal sees right through the theatrics — this is just another in the endless procession of special-interest issues politicians rely on to build support for themselves by promising benefits concentrated on a few and ignoring the costs dispersed among the many.
