College loan vote set

WASHINGTON, DC - The House is expected to vote Friday on a GOP measure that would prevent interest rates on federal student loans from doubling as of July 1.

President Barack Obama has appeared on three college campuses this week to call for keeping the rates down.

That's angered House Speaker John Boehner who says the president has been engaging in a fake fight.

The sides are at odds over financing loan relief. Republicans want to cut funds from the health care overhaul.
