It is unacceptable that we have saddled generations of young Americans with a lifetime debt and high interest loans just for them having the audacity of getting an education. I support legislative measures to relieve much of the debt and reduce student loan interest rates to lower than 3%. In addition, I will support a loan forgiveness for citizens that volunteer in their communities by serving in AmeriCorps or the Peace Corps. . My father who was born in 1928 when he was a young adult, he was able to work summers and save up enough money to pay for his tuition. Nowadays this is an impossible feat, tuition at state colleges range from about $5000-$10,000. There are no summer jobs that you can earn $10,000 as a newly unskilled laborer entering the workforce.
