Save Student Aid: Statement of Support

Our nation sorely needs to power up its economic engine. Work force projections show that by 2018, there will be jobs for as many as 22 million new workers with college degrees, but on our current trajectory, we won’t make that goal—in fact we’ll miss it by three million workers. 

Recent budget deals restored sequestration cuts to student aid, but have not restored the multi-year erosion in federal support. States continue to struggle to fund higher education.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to preserve, protect and provide adequate funding for the core federal student aid programs—such as Pell Grants, student loans, and partnerships and student support services. Together, these programs offer students an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills our nation demands for a strong recovery. 

Tough budget decisions in DC have put pressure on all federal spending, but cutting student aid, a long-term investment in our nation’s future, doesn’t make sense.

I support protecting federal student aid. Keep college within reach for our nation’s students and families.

I Support Student Aid
