Senator Kirk: Stop Voting Against Students in Illinois!

Students in Illinois can't afford more debt, and Senator Kirk needs to stop his support for proposals that will hurt students in Illinois.

Senator Kirk: Stop voting against students in Illinois!

Why is this important?

Senator Kirk recently voted against the Student Loan Affordability Act, which aimed to keep interest rates low for students for another two years. Instead, he voted for another proposal that could see interest rates skyrocket up to 8.5%.

64% of students have student debt upon completion from college in Illinois (where the average student loan debt is $26,440) and 337,440 students in Illinois are Stafford Loan borrowers.

Students in Illinois can't afford more debt, and on July 1st, student loan interest rates are set to double from 3.4% to 6.8%. We need Senator Kirk to stop voting for proposals that will hurt students in Illinois and the rest of America.
