Getting an education shouldn't cause financial ruin

The top student loan regulator at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently resigned in protest. And there's a lot to protest. Mick Mulvaney, President Trump's choice to be the acting director of the Bureau, is actively undermining the agency's mission of protecting consumers and instead catering to the wishes of predatory lenders.

As a former consumer protection attorney, I know that we can and must protect students from the predatory and abusive practices in the student loan industry. We need a CFPB that looks out for consumers and students – but that's not all we need. Right now, I'm helping to lead the fight for consumer protections for student borrowers and for making college more affordable.

Can you chip in to support my re-election campaign and help me keep fighting for students?

Student loans are crippling the finances of far too many Americans. Because of the deceptive and abusive practices of unscrupulous student loan companies, many students are strapped with significant debt and are not informed about affordable options for repayment. We need to do more to make sure student loan borrowers are educated and empowered to make smart decisions about their loans, and we must support efforts to crack down on predatory practices.

Getting an education shouldn't burden students with massive debt – and I'm going to keep working to make sure that it doesn't.

Can you chip in to my campaign so I can keep fighting for students in Congress?

Thank you for standing with me – and with students,

Suzanne
