“While U.S. PIRG recognizes the need to address the nation’s deficit, Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget plan slaps students with harmful cuts to the Pell Grants program while proposing a windfall for corporate tax dodgers, Wall Street banks, health insurance companies, and the oil industry.
The proposal recommends slashing Pell Grants which help more than 9 million students pay for college at a time of rising college costs, tight family finances and a job market that increasingly requires post-secondary education.
Congress should stand with students by rejecting Chairman Ryan’s budget.
The Pell Grant is the nations corner-stone financial aid program providing up to $5,550 in scholarship aid to more than 9 million low income students every year.”
