Interest rates are rising on EXISTING (?) loans too?

This is certainly a Valentine's Day story that should get wider exposure.

John Boehner to play Bluto Blartarsky in Repbulican remake of the movie Animal House
by Nancy Rivas

(An early draft of one famous scene has leaked out)

Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert: Well, it looks like the days of flying around on the private jets of companies with business before Congress are over.

House Majority Leader, John Boehner (as Bluto Blatarsky): Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is!

Was it over when this story first hit the press? Hell no! I still got elected Leader.
.................................................................................................................

President Bush: What's over?

Al Lord (Chairman of Sallie Mae): [Starts crying]

Please tell me the Single Holder Rule is not over. I'm just starting to build my own private golf course, and I need more money to buy my own baseball team. [Crying continues]
:....................................................................................................................

Boehner: It ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

[Runs out with Al Lord]
.........................................................................................................................
[Boehner returns alone]

Boehner: What happened to the Republicans I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh?

Hastert: I thought we wern't going to talk about Duke Cunningham and Jack Abramoff anymore.
....................................................................................................................

Boehner: Look, there is no way we can run the country without seeing what's going on in Boca Raton first hand.

Bush: We can't? Does Sallie Mae live in Boca?

Boehner: Don't worry. I've got plenty more rabbits up these sleeves.

House Education and Workforce Chairman, McKeon: That line was OK for the bankers' convention, but what do I tell the students?

Boehner: Forget about them. They've been freeloading on the taxpayers for years with the subsidies they have been getting on their student loans.

House Majority Whip, Blunt: Shh...60 Minutes and Leslie Stahl might find out about how we eliminated the refinancing of consolidation loans.

Bush: We did?

Boehner: Just tell the students to stop complaining about a few lousy dollars per month and get a job.

Now, who's with me?

[Silence]
