STATEMENT FROM SENATOR HANSEN:

GOV. WALKER’S COMMENTS ATTACKING HIGHER ED/LOWER DEBT PLAN

 

“Governor Walker gave $22 million to 11 of the state’s richest individuals but hasn’t lifted a finger to help the 1 million Wisconsin residents struggling under the burden of student loan debt.

 

If private lenders could solve the problem they would have.  Nothing the Governor said today changes that simple fact.

 

Wisconsin residents would be better served, if instead of attacking those of us who are trying to help people refinance their student loans at lower interest rates so they can buy new homes and start families, the Governor would work with Democrats in the Legislature to pass the Higher Ed/Lower Debt bill.”
