Obama Promises Funds for Students
(2008-06-18)
(wgvu) - Barack Obama is promising struggling
college students he'll find a way to help them pay for school.
The Democratic presidential candidate spoke to students at Wayne
County Community College in Taylor, Michigan.
He listened as they told stories of balancing family demands,
high fuel prices and education costs.
The Illinois senator recalled having to pay off his own mountain
of student loan debt. He also mentioned his plan to give students a
$4,000 tax credit to help pay tuition and fees in exchange for 100
hours of community service.
The event combined a couple of campaign goals: stressing Obama's
plans to help Americans struggling in a tough economy while showing
Michigan voters more about his modest roots.
