Sue's double-speak on college aid!
But staging press conferences and getting the local media to write about you -- even introducing legislation -- doesn't mean that much when that legislation (which we'll note is barely one page long) goes absolutely nowhere. It's been nearly a year since Sue introduced her plan and it's yet to move out of committee. Or attract a single co-sponsor. Indeed, we've seen cars on icy roads with more traction.
As the campaign heats up over the next few months, we assume that Sue will point to her "More Money for College" legislation as evidence that she's doing something to help worried parents. But the fact that she voted to cut over $12 billion from federal student loan programs should speak a lot louder than some legislation that's gone nowhere.
