The Middle Class Prosperity Project is a collaborative effort by Senator Elizabeth Warren, Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Economic Policy, and Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, to focus greater congressional and public attention on the challenges facing the middle class, and to formulate and implement concrete policy changes in order to address these challenges.
This is the reality of an underbanked neighborhood, and that's why Representative Elijah E. Cummings and U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren held their latest Middle Class Prosperity Project forum.
A college education has long been a key to shaping a person’s future in this Country. For generations, a college degree has been a ticket to the middle class. The problem is, that rising costs has put college out of reach for many Americans. Public support has been slashed. Tuition has been skyrocketing. When students and families can’t pay the high price of college, they turn to loans to fill the gap.
