Congressional Democrats are introducing a proposal to cancel student loan debt for millions of Americans.

“We know that student debt is not a result of bad decisions or behavior, it is the result of a broken system that tells students to get an education or go to college in order to have a stable life but then does not supply the resources to afford that education.”

Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and her colleagues are calling on President Biden to take executive action to cancel up to $50,000 in debt for federal student loan borrowers.
