Lundergan Grimes & U.S. Sen. Warren Push For Student Loan Changes

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes believes struggling Kentucky students should have the same loan rate as Wall Street banks.

Student debt was the focus in Louisville Sunday as Lundergan Grimes campaigned with Democratic U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Warren was traveling across the country after a failed senate vote that would have allowed some borrowers to refinance student loans for lower interest rates.

Republicans, led by U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, blocked the bill because it would have raised taxes on wealthy Americans to pay for it.

Lundergan Grimes and Warren said McConnell sided with millionaires instead of struggling students.

Meanwhile McConnell has said Warren’s bill was ‘political theater’ and never about students.
