Senator Warren gets real about student loans on the Daily Show

Senator Warren was on the Daily Show last night, talking student loans: 

[STEWART]: “The big banks have been at the fed discount window for years and years now, borrowing at zero percent. Why is that ok?… Why are students not being penalized for not being businesses but businesses are basically being handed money?”

[WARREN]: “Because the big banks have a lot better lobbyists than the students do. I’m sorry, but that’s what it comes down to. We should not be charging our kids more to get a loan to go to college than we charge big financial institutions in order to finance their businesses.”
