• John: Education is the “ticket to success”

    “Where I work, a lot of these kids can’t afford to go to school without Pell Grants. They are hard workers and brilliant students, but they don’t have the financial resources. Thanks to President Obama’s commitment to helping students, these kids can get an education—which is the ticket to success.

    “If you grew up as Mitt Romney did, there are certain issues that are just not issues for you—things that you wouldn’t even think of stressing about, like how to pay for college or whether you will still be employed in a new school year. President Obama knows the issues that face everyday Americans. Mitt Romney doesn’t.”
