Keith believes that when we provide students and young people with the tools they need to pursue their dreams, we lay the foundation for a strong economy for years to come. He has supported reducing interest rates on need-based student loans, increasing the minimum wage, expansion of Pell Grants, and loan forgiveness for public servants. By supporting the College Cost Reduction and Access Act, Keith helped end government subsidies given to private financial institutions, which will make more money directly available to students so they can pursue a world-class education.
The last thing our students should have to worry about as they transition from school to the workforce is whether they can afford health care. Keith ensured access to quality, affordable medical care with his vote in support of the Affordable Care Act. Now, young adults can stay on their parents’ plan until their 26th birthday.
