Today, Alison Lundergan Grimes released the below statement following Mitch McConnell's vote against the 360,000 Kentuckians who could have received student loan debt relief:
"Senator McConnell's blatant disregard for the hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians crushed by student loan debt is deeply disconcerting. This vote against our middle-class families underscores the fact that my opponent has been in Washington for far too long and just does not get it. I call on the Senate to pass both the legislation to ease student loan burden as well as the bipartisan bill to address problems within the Department of Veterans Affairs. Kentucky students and veterans deserve a champion who will fight for them in the U.S. Senate -- not stand idly by and ignore the needs of real people."
