Pass Sen. Bernie Sanders' College for All Act, S. 806

This petition had 241 supporters

We must pass the College for All Act. We must do this because universities and colleges across the nation are raising prices. In Iowa, the Regent Universities are raising tuition. Specifically, undergrad tuition by 7.08 percent each year through 2022, leading to a total increase of over 41 percent. Next year in-state tuition at the University of Iowa will increase from $7,486 to $10,537. 

At this time, 44 million Americans owe more than $1.3 trillion in student loans. Personally, I have nearly $40,000 in student loan debt. 

The cost of college should not be a barrier to getting a degree or credential, and student loan debt should not hold anyone back after they graduate.
