Students actually got a reverse bail-out
H RES 653 "This bill cut nearly $40 billion over five years from the federal budget by imposing substantial changes on welfare, child support and student lending programs."

Essentially congress voted to cut almost 13 billion from student aid. If your congressman doesn't vote for you, why should you vote for them? See how your representative voted. I personally know the congressman in Drew's district, Rodney Frelinghuysen, voted for cutting student aid in H RES 653 yet voted for the second bailout of over 840bil (he voted against the original 700bil bailout because it was "too much money").
