I am very pleased that President Obama has reconfirmed his commitment to college affordability and completion by announcing the America’s College Promise Proposal. This plan would help waive tuition at community colleges, offering up to $3,800 toward tuition for hard-working students and allowing as many as 9 million Americans to graduate debt-free.
I commend President Obama for the historic achievement of normalizing relations with Cuba. For too long, we have allowed mistrust and political differences to stand in the way of our shared interests. Isolating the Cuban government may have been a good strategy during the Cold War, but it has become counterproductive to our economic and security priorities.
