Student Loan Debt Reform
Right now, student loan debt is $1.3 trillion. It is the biggest economic crisis this country has ever faced. It affects 86 million Americans. The cost of education is much higher than it was years ago and the income of borrowers has not risen in proportion to that cost.
You have an option, go into debt and become educated or forgo education. Most of chose to go into debt because education is your way up!
Women overall are 28% more likely than men to have student debt.
The ongoing court battle regarding the student loan debt crisis has been extremely personal to Pat Maher. She went to law school later in life to receive her law degrees and is now saddled with student loan debt. When she first went to school as an undergraduate the cost for tuition was about $3000 a semester and in some state schools it was that much for a year. Fast forward, Maher went to law school later in life and graduated with a J.D., law degree and an LL.M., a Master of Laws. “I loved law school, but I am saddled with student loans. I will probably live for the rest of my life with student loan debt,” said Maher.
Today, it was announced that the Supreme Court voted against President Biden's $400 Billion plan to cancel student loan debt for Americans across this country. The effect will be devastating. People will default on their loans and have to choose between food and rent, or their student loan debt. Our kids and grandchildren will pay the price. “I have spent my life trying to help people and I do it through running for office,” said Maher.
