Hillary Clinton, In New Ad, Touts Plan to Make College More Affordable

NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–November 9, 2015.  As a generation of young Americans struggles to deal with the crushing burden of student debt, Hillary for America’s latest TV ad, “Compact,”highlights Hillary Clinton’s plan to reduce the cost of college.

Clinton’s “New College Compact” would guarantee that students do not need to borrow to pay for tuition, books, and fees to attend a four-year public college in their state. Her plan would also provide college graduates with the opportunity to refinance their student loans at current rates. This proposal alone would assist an estimated 25 million young people. Typical borrowers could save $2,000 over the life of their loans.

“Compact” opens with two recent graduates explaining how much they owe on their student loans. The ad then features footage of Clinton at a recent town hall explaining her cost-reducing proposals.

The new, 30-second spot is part of the campaign’s ongoing buy in Iowa and New Hampshire and will run alongside previously released ads.
