Kamala Harris, the Vice President, discusses economy, housing, and student loan debt in Milwaukee

During her fourth visit to Wisconsin this year, Vice President Kamala Harris joined actor and comedian D.L. Hughley on stage in Milwaukee as part of her Economic Opportunity Tour. The tour aims to highlight the steps the Biden-Harris Administration has taken to improve economic opportunity for all Americans.

During her speech, Harris emphasized the struggles many Americans face in paying bills due to debt, including medical and student loan debt. She announced initiatives to provide financial literacy information and assistance with applying for loans, as well as eligibility for small business loans for individuals with prior criminal convictions. Additionally, $40 million in awards were announced for housing counseling agencies to expand services around the country, including $300,000 in new funding for Wisconsin.

Harris highlighted that medical debt will no longer be included in credit scores and over $150 billion of student loan debt has been forgiven for four million Americans. She emphasized the importance of providing equal economic opportunities for all Americans, regardless of their background or circumstances.

After her visit to Milwaukee, Harris traveled to Chicago before returning to Washington D.C., where she continues to work towards creating a more equitable and prosperous future for all Americans.
