Blame Carson’s party for student debt

What perplexes me is, Andre Carson’s party had complete control of both houses of Congress when the initial student debt law was passed [July 8 Viewpoint]. They could’ve set those interest rates at 3.4 percent for 10 years, 20 years or forever. However, they chose to set it to expire right in the middle of an election year. If the consequences are so grave, as Carson claims, then why didn’t they consider that when their supermajority passed the law to begin with?
