Students Against Michele Bachmann! • 06.27.11
“Her votes — all public record on Web sites like Vote Smart — offer insight to her consistent position against college students. Her votes against college students include bills which raise Pell grant limits (HR 4137) lower student loan interest rates (HR 5) and a longer deferment option for military students (HR 2669). Michelle Bachmann’s congressional Web site, and a list of all of her public record statements and speeches make no mention of helping out college students who continue to face rising tuition and student debt or, frankly, anything relating to assisting students.”
Bachmann’s record shows that she isn’t just opposed to education in her own individual case – she’s also against the mechanisms that we have established as a society that take our most talented young minds and refine their abilities. Bachmann has worked to defund educational institutions and to disrespect scientific understanding of the world around us.
Now, Bachmann isn’t just a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Bachmann is formally announcing the launch of her presidential campaign tomorrow. That’s why now is the time for Students Against Bachmann to step forward and do their part to stop the Minnesota politician from damaging American education more than she already has.
