ICYMI: Senator Marshall Joins Press Conference Slamming the Biden Admins FAFSA Mismanagement
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. joined GOP colleagues Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and Joni Ernst (R-IA) to discuss their recent letter sent to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) calling for an investigation into the Department of Education’s mismanagement of the FAFSA application process. Right now, over 17 million families nationwide are in limbo, uncertain of the financial support they are eligible for and unable to make informed decisions about their education options.

Highlights from Senator Marshall’s remarks include:
“Joe Biden’s policies continue to destroy America from the middle out, and the bottom up. His policies, his ineptness continue to destroy America from the middle out and the bottom up. Joe Biden’s fumbling of FAFSA, the student aid application, disproportionately impacts students from middle income families, and lower income families as well.”
“I know what it’s like to be a first generation college student hoping to get a little bit of financial aid on top of academic scholarships and athletic scholarships. And what it is to sit there and be waiting for that, literally the difference being able to afford to go to college or to not go to college.”
“And we’re hearing that from Kansas University’s small colleges and community colleges, technical colleges across the state.”
“Of the 17 Million people that have tried to enter this process, only approximately 3 million have been able to get across the finish line.”
“I want to echo what Senator Capito talked about – only perhaps 20% of folks in the federal government are working in person. And whether it’s the USDA or the Department of Education. I’m calling on Joe Biden to get the federal employees back to work, back in person. This continues to cause a delay up here and these programs are not being implemented properly.”
