    Some Filibuster……

    If there are legitimate objections to this bill and the Senate Republicans want to “talk” the bill to death, the by all means, start talking. And keep talking. And keep talking. Hiding behind a cloture vote and hoping nobody would notice or that they would chalk it up to partisan gridlock is not engaging in a filibuster. Let’s hear what you have to say. I know many people who would be keenly interested in why you feel that student borrowers should not be afforded the same privilege as other borrowers.

    After one year?

    Does it really pay to refinance? And what about the deal agreed to last year?
