Obama helps students

October 18, 2012

President Obama cut the banks out of the student-loan process as middlemen. By doing so, Obama saved taxpayers $61 billion that will be given to 3 million students by way of Pell Grants and other aid. Obama assured that all young people, age 26 and under, can remain on their parents’ health insurance. Obama is out to help students because he knows we need an educated populace to compete on the global stage. The Paul Ryan budget will cut Pell Grants.

The Ryan budget will eliminate your parents’ mortgage-interest deduction effectively raising their income taxes. Vote, if you haven’t already. Mark your calendar right now. Vote on Nov. 6 for Obama.
