Thanks to President Obama’s efforts to reform the student-loan system, now other students like me are able to receive Pell Grants. He’s been able to free up $60 billion to distribute in loans by cutting out big banks from the grant system. He’s also established a tax credit to help middle-class families send their kids to school. I know that has helped my family.
President Obama has done a lot to make college more affordable. And because he and the first lady also had student loans and worked hard to repay them, he knows there’s more work to do. I know he’ll have my best interest in heart through a second term.
