Student Loan Debt

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. CLARKE of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, student loan debt is too high and I'm asking this Congress--I'm demanding that this Congress--cut it down.

Student loan debt will soon approach $1 trillion; and as our graduates are struggling to pay off this debt, this debt is robbing them of their future, and it's costing this country jobs. That's why I will soon introduce this bill to responsibly reduce student loan debt, to make repayment simpler and fairer, and to give our graduates a chance that they deserve--a chance to enjoy the American Dream.
