Preserve Loan Forgiveness Program

The PROSPER Act that is currently in committee in the House of Representatives eliminates the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program that encourages talented people to become educators, firefighters, nurses, public defenders, and pursue other forms of public service where pay tends to be lower than the private sector.

I am someone who is working in a public school with the understanding that student loan forgiveness will benefit me as I work to benefit the public.

How is it that the Republicans can find ways to cut the taxes of millionaires, but are willing to hurt people like myself who are trying to benefit society? Ladies and gentlemen, this is not Making America Great.
