(CBS News) The Obama administration has issued a veto threat of the House version of a bill to extend low interest rates on student loans because the Republican version of the legislation would repeal part of President Obama’s health care overhaul.
“This is a politically-motivated proposal and not the serious response that the problem facing America’s college students deserves,” the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said in a statement. “If the President is presented with H.R. 4628, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.”
After finding such success with the hostage taking tactic, its not surprising to see them doing it again and again.
