College Affordability


For years, college tuition has been rising faster than inflation at a rate of two-to-one. Hundreds of thousands of college graduates start their working lives already owing the equivalent of a mortgage before even getting their first paycheck.

Kate and I are still paying student debt, so we get it.

In Congress, I will introduce legislation capping the amount colleges can increase their tuition each year. Education should be a path to economic security, not decades of debt.
