Sharon Sund for Congress: Student Loan Reform

We are calling on members of Congress to reduce the interest rates on student loans to the same rates of banks in the United States.

Why is this important?

Our children are our future. We are stronger as a nation when we support hard work and dedication that will enable young people to build strong foundations for their lives. College has historically been part of a path to opportunity and achieving the American dream. But in the past decades, tuition rates have skyrocketed–much faster than inflation–and costs have been shifted to students. Young adults are starting their lives under the weight of crippling debt.

It is outrageous that when the banks were struggling we came together as a nation to keep them afloat, but as our students stumble under the weight of trillions of dollars of debt we are turning our backs on them.

We are calling on members of Congress to support affordable college by immediately reducing the interest rates student loans to the same low rates afforded to banks.
