Take Action: Choose Students over Banks

President Obama has a plan to strengthen America by making college more affordable for millions of Americans.

The President proposes to save almost ten billion dollars a year by shutting down a program that gives banks wasteful subsidies on student loans.  He wants to devote the savings – as much as $87 billion over 10 years -- to Pell Grants to help students pay for college. 

Unfortunately, loan company lobbyists are pressuring Congress to save their wasteful subsidies at the expense of students and their families.

Join Campus Progress: Tell Congress to choose students over banks, because we need a better future, and because we are fed up with banks taking billions from taxpayers for no good reason.

President Obama is ready to stand up against the loan companies to make college affordable, are you?
