This one must be an easy call. One hears no talk of putting off a decision until after the election. So more students will accumulate more debt that they will find difficult to pay off unless the economy begins to generate more employment, something the administration finds difficult but which is not likely to be mentioned by Mr. Fallon, in what is sure to be an otherwise hard-hitting interview.

More than the revenue that would have been generated had the so-called Buffett Rule been made law, perhaps, but chicken feed in an age of trillion dollar deficits.
And the right kind of material for Mr. Fallon's show.
