Student debt has surpassed $1 trillion, and for poor and working class students, college is only accessible with huge loans and working long hours while in school. Others forgo school entirely; each year more than 400,000 qualified students fail to attend a four-year college due to financial costs.
Democratic socialists believe that education is a right, not a privilege!
Sign our petition to make student loan repayment simple and fair, jump start the economy and create jobs, and send a lifeline to student borrowers.
I stand behind H.R. 1330, the Student Loan Fairness Act, because I know graduates need real debt relief. Help convert private loans into federal loans with a maximum 3.4% interest rate and set a payment limit of 10% of a student’s discretionary income over 10 years.
Don’t leave a generation behind!
