Obama signs higher-education measure into law
President Obama signed into law Tuesday a package of revisions to his new health-care overhaul that includes a measure aimed at making higher education more affordable.
The provision ends what Obama called a long-standing "sweetheart deal" for banks in federally guaranteed student loans.
In a speech and signing ceremony at the Alexandria campus of Northern Virginia Community College, Obama said the health-care reform legislation and the revisions represent "two major victories ... that will improve the lives of our people for generations to come."
