Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act Floor Speech

Elizabeth Warren posted a video on Facebook.

Since last year, nearly a million more people have fallen behind on their student loan payments. Young people who are working hard to build a future deserve a real opportunity to succeed, and that means letting struggling borrowers refinance their student loans to take advantage of lower interest rates. Yesterday afternoon I gave a speech reintroducing the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act to give much-needed relief to millions of borrowers, help boost our economy, and strengthen America’s middle class.

As John Oliver might ask, “Republicans: How is this still a thing?”

Has anyone noticed that the YouTube videos that people share on Facebook no longer have the link back to YouTube, let alone a credit for YouTube? This may make some perverted sense to some business type at Facebook who doesn’t want to give credit to a competitor while benefiting from the services of that competitor. Somehow, though, I think making the life of your own customers more difficult is not going to be a winning strategy. We do notice such things.

For each video, we used to have a link to one item on YouTube. Now Facebook is forcing us to go fishing in YouTube land to find the video. Does that sound like a good business decision to you?
