Obama announces plan for more affordable colleges
More affordable college education, that's the focus of a two-day bus tour President Barack Obama is set to kick off today (Thursday).
The President will visit schools in New York and Pennsylvania to push several proposals aimed at curbing the rising cost of higher education.
Mr. Obama says pricey tuition and cuts in financial aid are leaving middle-class students buried in loans and it's time for a change.
The tour is touted as part of a White House plan to "create a better bargain for the middle class."
