3rd District College Students and Families.....NO VOTE for You

Oklahoma GOP Congressman Frank Lucas, CD-3, did NOT VOTE on the important measure yesterday to cut the interest rate on student loans in half. The measure passed the House 356 to 71 with 174 Republicans voting with the Democratic majority.

Let's see, in CD 3 there are how many colleges and universities? That would eight. They include: Northern Oklahoma College, Enid; Northwestern Oklahoma State University, Alva, Enid and Woodward; Oklahoma Panhandle State University, Goodwell; Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Weatherford and Sayre; Western Oklahoma State College, Altus; Northern Oklahoma College, Tonkawa and Stillwater; Oklahoma State University, Stillwater; and the University Center at Ponca City, Ponca City.

I'm pretty sure that Sue Barton would've voted for this important bill. I'm pretty sure that Barton would've taken a strong stand for Oklahoma students and their families. Barton was the Democratic nominee for CD3 in 2006.
