Pelosi Proposes Lowering the Voting Age to 16
Pelosi also mentioned that Democrats are continuing their push to allow college graduates to refinance their student loans.
During a panel discussion at the conference, Democratic Del. Stacey Plaskett (V.I.) said she had $200,000 in student debt after attending graduate school and law school.
“My entire career has been in public service, which means I will never be able to pay off that loan. And I just decided, you know, what the hell, I’m still going to have a family. I’m still going to do those things and there’s got to be relief for us to be able to be productive citizens and productive people in this country without that gnawing ache,” Plaskett said.
