GOP Rep: Student Loans Should Rise Since "Personal Responsibility Is Cool"

Speaking to "Daily Rundown" host Luke Russert, Rep. Luke Messer (R-IN) said that young people should support the Republicans' proposal to let student loan rates rise up to 8.5 percent in contrast to President Obama's wanting them to stay between 3 and 4 percent. Messer stated, “Republicans need to do a better job of explaining how our ideas apply to young people. Sometimes it sounds like he is selling ice cream and we’re selling spinach. I think personal responsibility is pretty cool. There is nothing out of date about freedom, and we need to have the policies that get this budget back in line, stop the explosive growth of spending. Spending that will be paid for by this generation. We’ve got to do a better job of explaining that.” Watch and judge whether Messer does "a better job of explaining" why the GOP's 8.5 percent proposal should appeal to students:
