Key Messages

To read this candidate's full survey responses, .

Forty-four millions Americans and their families are victims of a broken federal school loan program. Many Americans receive a Social Security check and a student loan payment bill in the same month.

There is a conservative solution to solving the student debt crisis that will benefit the American economy, build a better future workforce and repay nearly $2 tillion in national debt.

It's time to show the country that Republicans and Democrats can work together in Washington to solve one of the biggest problems facing the American family today.
