senate Bill S. 3611

Should the IRS & Dept. of Education Share Info to Simplify FAFSA Applications?

Argument in favor

Streamlining the FAFSA application process allows more students and their families to apply for financial aid. This makes college more accessible and increases the probability that students will enroll, and stay, in school.

Yes, but we wouldn't need student loans if school was affordable. Do THAT instead.

I'm all for simplifying. Here's an idea-- why not make education cheap(er), or hell, even free education like Europe's, and negate the federal government from having to give individuals money-- they can just pay it themselves, or just go since the schools will have already been subsidised.

A resounding yes. They are confusing, take too long and ask for way too much personal info. This change is much needed to help student loan and grant recipients informed on what info is being taken and also what the terms of their loans etc are.

Argument opposed

Simplifying the FAFSA application process means forgoing some information about applicants’ financial resources, which could cause some to receive financial aid money that they’re ineligible for, raising the cost of funding federal financial aid.

This seems too open to abuse. Make college/trade schools affordable.

Using taxpayer funds to guarantee student loans, and allowing liberal academics to jack up the price of tuition, is a monumental abuse of the taxpayers. Get the government out of the student loan business and you will see tuition come down to affordable levels.

The more people you allow to see IRA information, the greater the increase in identity theft. I've had that happen to me and it is not pleasant.

    Although the convenience is exciting, this is just a little too “big brother” for me. I think over time the FAFSA application might require you to provide a blood sample as well. I paid back 240K in student loans. They’ve already sucked enough of my blood. No thanks.

    No, too much room for abuse. Additionally, I see no reason in making it that much easier to apply for a loan that many have difficulties paying back. Here's an idea - why not make public colleges more affordable instead of simply making it easier to borrow tens of thousands of dollars?

    Make applying for financial aid easier. Next write and pass legislation that makes college free. An educated society is good for the economy and a democracy.

    Let's move all college loans to a private company. Federal Student Loans are not found In the Constitution.

    FASFA is unconstitutional. There is no provision directing the Gov’t to supply funding for students to go to college. Return our nation to its original Constitutional roots. Big Gov’t is enslaving the citizens of this nation. This must stop!

    We need to stop illegals, free loaders and the Democrat Socialist party from cheating. Support this common sense bill. Then stop encouraging the lie that college is for everyone as it is mostly a waste of money to learn a trade that barely covers the cost.

    High school graduation not enough in this world now. I think we should support at least for every student 2 years of college like we support our schools.

    Make college affordable. On a side note- Once the IRS starts sharing everyone will have everyone else’s social security number and identity theft will become impossible to control.

    It would be nice but the trumplicans are anti education. They are doing their best to make college unaffordable for all but the wealthy. They know if we get educated we won’t be trumplicans.

    S.3611 - Faster Access to Federal Student Aid Act I’m in support of and recommend the passage of Senate bill 3611 AKA Faster Access to Federal Student Aid Act which would Streamline the FAFSA application process thus allows more students and their families to apply for financial aid. This makes college more accessible and increases the probability that students will enroll, and stay, in school. SneakyPete..... 👍🏻👍🏻🏫👍🏻👍🏻. 12*15*18....;
