Joining the chorus of politicians who have recognized that one can’t repay their debts if they cannot work, Sen. Marco Rubio (R – FL) is reaching across the aisle to correct a mistake from earlier in his career.
B While in #Florida legislature I voted for a bill that allowed state to suspend professional licenses of those who defaulted on student loans. I WAS WRONG. Today I filed a bill with @SenWarren to fix this. How can they pay back if they can’t work? #Sayfie https://t.co/fcbJUkJ6BJ— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) June 14, 2018
Rubio is working with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D- MA) to protect citizens from the potential suspension or revocation of the professional or driver’s license due to missed student loan payments, an approach that many critics see at face value to be counter-productive.
