College Affordability

A college education is a necessity that is being priced as a luxury – and it is breaking the bank for students and families across Upstate New York. With tuition costs continuing to rise, middle-class families and their students are being forced to saddle themselves with debt for years in order to obtain a college diploma. Because of this, student loan debt is a huge burden on the shoulders of millions of young Americans, and it is holding back their ability to achieve the American Dream.

I am launching this campaign today to encourage students and parents and student loan debt holders to share their stories so we can finally force Congress to address the issue of college affordability, which is key to the ongoing success of our modern economy.
