Florida Republican U.S. Senate candidate Connie Mack downplayed the importance of student loan interest rates during an interview with MSNBC this morning.
Mack said he felt other issues were more important to Floridians.
“I want to talk about what’s happening here in the state of Florida,” Mack said, referring to people losing jobs and their homes.
“I’m telling you that people who are watching your program today and if they’re in Florida, what they’re concerned about is jobs and the economy and how we’re going to balance a budget with a $16 trillion debt and a $1.4 trillion deficit. Chuck, this is what people down here are talking about…we will absolutely be able to cast a vote, and when that happens we’ll be happy to do so.”
