Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is out with a video explaining his vote Tuesday to block a Democratic bill that would prevent interest rates on student loans from going up.
"I think I am one of the only senators here who still has a student loan," Rubio says. "As someone with a student loan and with a state with so many people with student loans, I support a hundred percent making sure that the interest rates on student loans do not go up. I cannot support the way Democrats want to do it, however."
Rubio has somewhere between $100,000 to $250,000 in student loans (holy crap!), according to his financial disclosure forms.
