person in this country who has the desire and ability
should be able to get all the education they need
regardless of the income of their family. This is

education affordable for all. We must substantially
lower interest rates on student loans. This must
be a national priority."

for many working class families. Higher education
must be a right for all - not just wealthy families."

in this country who wants to go to college can go
to college -- regardless of income."
