Today in New Hampshire, Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd proposed a "comprehensive plan to ensure that all Americans have access to affordable higher education."
Dodd said that "A strong middle class depends on access to higher education, but soaring tuition rates have put college out of reach for too many hardworking families. By making student loans more affordable and providing for free community college for all, we can help middle class families and strengthen America."
Dodd's plan would:
* Reform the student loan system to ensure federal dollars go to student aid instead of corporate profits.
* Raise Pell Grants and reduce the cost of college student loans.
* Provide an opportunity for free community college to every American.
