Senator Portman: Stop Voting Against Students in Ohio!
Students in Ohio can't afford more debt, and Senator Portman needs to stop voting against proposals that will help students in Ohio.
Tell Senator Portman: Stop voting against students in Ohio!
Why is this important?
Senator Portman 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%.
68% of students have student debt upon completion from college in Ohio, where the average student loan debt is $24,760. Close to 400,000 Ohioans are Stafford loan borrowers.
Students in Ohio can't afford more debt, on July 1st, student loan interest rates are set to double from 3.4% to 6.8%. We need Senator Portman to stop voting for proposals that will hurt students in Ohio and the rest of America.
