Sen. Bernie Sanders introduces bill to make college free and have Wall Street pay for it
Free college could soon be a reality for many Americans.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., on Wednesday introduced the College for All Plan, legislation that would make a college education free for millions and lend extra support to those from working-class families attending minority institutions.
“In the wealthiest country in the history of the world, a higher education should be a right for all, not a privilege for the few,” Sanders said in a statement. “If we are going to have the kind of standard of living that the American people deserve, we need to have the best educated workforce in the world.”
The proposal comes amid a continuing debate over canceling student loan debt.
President Joe Biden said during his presidential campaign that he would support eliminating $10,000 in federal debt per borrower, and now he’s tasked his secretary of Education with preparing a report on his legal authority to forgive up to $50,000.
“While President Biden can and should immediately cancel student debt for millions of borrowers, Congress must ensure that working families never have to take out these crushing loans to receive a higher education in the first place,” Jayapal said.
