ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY

Since his days as a community organizer, President Obama has been fighting for young Americans.

As President, he passed the Affordable Care Act, allowing you to stay on your parent's health care plan until you’re 26, reformed the student loan system to put billions of dollars back into the pockets of students paying for college instead of watching it pad the profits of big banks.

The President has invested in clean energy, encouraged innovators to start companies and build the technologies of the future, ended combat operations in Iraq, brought more than 90,000 troops home, and made sure they get the care they have earned once they’re back. He’s repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and expanded both Pell Grants and the American Opportunity Tax Credit for college tuition.
