President Obama to students: ‘Can I get an Amen?’
President Obama employed a little religious rhetoric today, speaking to students in North Carolina about his plan to lower interest rates for student loans.
Obama told the students that since they were born, tuition and fees at colleges have doubled.
“And that forces students like you to take on a lot more loans, there are fewer grants, you rack up a lot more debt,” Obama stated.
“Can I get an Amen for that?” he asked the crowd who cheered, “AMEN!”
