Here is a transcription of an email that I received about a proposed bill that makes a lot of sense to me.
The main points described in a brief summary of the bill are:
- Make student loan repayment both simple and fair
- Jumpstart the economy and create jobs
- Send a lifeline to student borrowers who have fallen on difficult times
- Promote financial responsibility in higher education
For all the details, you can read the actual bill.
There are also answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.

This seems like a needed first step to reinstating support for higher education, economic prosperity, and social mobility that has started to wane in this country.
