Student Debt
Just weeks after receiving their degrees, college graduates are now dealing with a dual dilemma: struggling to find good-paying jobs in the worst economy since the Great Depression and coping with mountains of student debt. Students are graduating from Vermont colleges with an average of roughly $28,000 in student loan debt. Many students, however, are struggling with a debt load several times that amount and are feeling increasingly like modern-day indentured servants. Making matters worse, Stafford student loan rates are set to double on July 1. Heavy student debt loads are placing financial stress on Vermonters who are stretching their budgets to cover payments. Sen. Bernie Sanders is drafting comprehensive legislation that would reform how students pay for higher education. Bernie is also working with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who introduced legislation that would ensure students are offered the same loan rates the Fed gives big banks on Wall Street: 0.75 percent.

College Loans
Responding to more than 700 emails from college students and graduates in Vermont and around the nation, Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday called for restoring student the loan interest rate to the level that was charged before the rate doubled on July 1 to 6.8 percent. "We have a major crisis in our country today in terms of the high cost of college and the incredible debt burden that college students and their families are facing," Sanders said in a Senate floor speech. "Our job is to improve that situation, to lessen the burden on students and their families -- not to make it worse." Sanders read from some of the emails he received about how student loans have affected people's careers and families.

Solving the Primary Care Crisis
Solutions to severe shortages in the nation's primary care workforce were examined at a Senate hearing on Tuesday. "In the United States today, some 45,000 people unnecessarily die each year because they don't get to a doctor in time," Sen. Bernie Sanders said. "Major reforms in primary care will save lives and save billions in health care costs," he added in his opening statement at the hearing he chaired of the Senate Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging.

Immigration Reform
Senator Bernie Sanders on Tuesday congratulated the Senate Judiciary Committee for drafting an immigration reform bill that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants in the United States and help their children become citizens. He also supported provisions in the measure that would strengthen border enforcement, prevent unscrupulous employers from hiring illegal workers and give legal status to foreign workers needed to keep Vermont's dairy farms and apple orchards in business. Sanders, however, expressed strong concern that large American corporations in the midst of very high unemployment were using immigration reform to lower wages and benefits for American workers.

Republicans Block EPA Nominee
Republicans on the Senate environment committee on Thursday blocked a vote on the nomination of Gina McCarthy to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. "The American people want this government to function. This type of obstructionism is enormously anti-democratic," said Sen. Bernie Sanders. The latest Republican stalling tactic came one day after Republicans on Wednesday delayed for the second time in two weeks a vote on the nomination of Tom Perez to head the Department of Labor.

Innovative Energy-Saving Program Takes Hold in Vermont
Sen. Bernie Sanders recognized the first business -- Waggy's Store and Deli in Burlington, Vt. -- for participating in an innovative financing program that helps pay for energy efficiency improvements. Authorized by a provision Sen. Sanders included in a 2011 appropriations bill, a $1 million grant to the Burlington Electric Department helped launch an on-bill financing program, which helps businesses pay for energy efficient technologies with the savings from reduced utility bills. Burlington Electric matched the $1 million federal grant with another $1 million -- providing further incentives to lower the cost of efficiency projects.

Minority Rule
On Monday evening, senators held a three-and a-half-hour meeting in the Old Senate Chamber to discuss the partisan standoff over President Barack Obama's executive-branch nominees. This morning Sen. Bernie Sanders discussed the issue on C-SPAN's Washington Journal saying "My view is that the minority has the right to talk as long as they want, but at the end of the day we have to be able to vote." While strongly supporting Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid's effort to change the rules on Senate confirmation votes, Sanders would go further. He would tear down parliamentary roadblocks that that have stymied the Senate from acting on legislation to address critical issues.
