Rep. Lloyd Doggett Wants to Fix Federal Financial Student Aid

Going to college is important–and expensive. Thanks to a combination of decreased public funding and inflation, the cost has been steadily rising. While the cost of attendance in Texas is lower than the national average, it is getting more expensive as well. This often makes attending college a challenge for lower-income students. Fortunately, that’s where Austin Democratic Congressman Lloyd Doggett comes in.

Democrats say they have votes needed to sustain veto

Three days before world leaders formally unveiled an interim deal in early 2014 to slow the growth of Iran’s nuclear program, two House Democrats quietly met to start discussing how they could sell a final accord — if it ever came to fruition — to a skeptical Congress. It was Jan. 9, 2014, and Texas Rep. Lloyd Doggett and North Carolina Rep. David Price knew that without a sustained campaign from allies in Congress, it would be tough for President Barack Obama to persuade lawmakers to support the agreement over the strong objections of pro-Israel groups like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Thank you, for the encouragement and support, especially throughout these recent weeks. The low turnout does signal how much work remains to ensure Democratic victories in the General Election in November.

There are no unimportant elections and no unimportant races. From the courthouse to the statehouse to the Congress, I will be working for Democratic victories.
