Albert Lord: We need to talk!
Today is National Fax-in Day to Albert Lord, Sallie Mae’s CEO. We are asking for a meeting with students from around the country that will be visiting the Sallie Mae DC office. Below is a sample letter we are asking people to FAX to Albert Lord and Sallie Mae. CLICK HERE to do it from your computer.
For months now, we have been asking Sallie Mae to meet with us to talk about the burden that student debt causes us and our communities. We’ve only heard silence in return, so now we’re contacting you.
1) Stop robbing us of our futures: Forgive student debt after five years of repayment and eliminate all interest on student loans. This would end the student debt crisis, allow millions of students to obtain a college degree, reset the housing market, pump billions of dollars back into the economy, and create jobs.
2) Pay your fair share: Stop draining government of revenue. Pay the statutorily required 35% corporate income tax instead of gaming the system through off-shore tax shelters, loopholes, and scams.
3) Get your money out of my democracy: Disclose corporate money in elections to date and pledge to keep all corporate money out of the 2012 and future elections. This includes an end to lobbying on public policy issues, such as Pell Grant and Trio Programs.
4) We need to talk. Albert Lord, will you meet with United States Student Association and Student Labor Action Project representatives on March 26th?
