Key Vote NO on the Borrower Defense Institutional Accountability Rule CRA Resolution, H.J.Res. 76 – Freedom Works
On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to vote NO on the Borrower Defense Institutional Accountability Rule CRA Resolution, H.J.Res. 76, to roll back a Department of Education rule related to higher education. This Democrat-only Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution would undo updated borrower defense regulations that will be a marked improvement over the existing set of regulations that were issued under President Obama.
Borrower defense policy, which is intended to allow students who were defrauded by institutions of higher education to receive relief for their federal student loans, has existed for more than two decades but was rarely used until the Obama Administration. Whatever one’s opinion on the merits of loan forgiveness for alleged defrauding or even of federal student loans themselves, it can and should certainly be agreed upon that such a forgiveness program should be structured in such a way that it provides relief only to those who were truly defrauded, in the same way that the social safety net should apply only to the most vulnerable and in need amongst us.
