Kudos to the House for passing important legislation today that will make it easier for America's youth to attend college!

The bill, which passed 273-149 (47 Republicans joined Democrats), cut almost $20 billion from subsidies to lenders, increases available loans and grants, and affords loan forgiveness for those who need it the most. Although President Bush has gone on the record opposing the bill, it is likely he will sign it into law later this year.

While the bill itself is a huge step in the right direction, it also represents a larger ideal. This Democratic Congress was elected on a promise to do work for the American people, and its commitment seems resolute.

It's only been half a year since Nancy Pelosi was sworn in as Speaker of the House, and I look forward to seeing what she and her progressive colleagues achieve in the future.
