House to vote on student loans
By Molly K. Hooper
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said the House will vote Friday to prevent a jump in student loan rates, offsetting the cost with money from a “slush fund” in the president’s healthcare law.
Boehner announced the vote during a hastily called press conference late Wednesday after the president personally attacked Boehner for opposing the loan during a speech at the University of Iowa.
The Speaker ripped the president for campaigning on the issue, saying he was trying to create a fight out of thin air.
“This week the president is campaigning and trying to invent a fight where there is none and never has been on this issue of student loans,” Boehner said. “We can, and will fix the problem, without a bunch of campaign style theatrics.”

What a wonderful post.
Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words. For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. (Colossians 4-10).
