President and First Lady Planning To Make Going To College Easier

Today there was a summit at the White House aimed at expanding College opportunities.

Obamacare became law three-and-a-half years ago, but shockingly the website for President Obama's signature piece of legislation was a horrible failure when it rolled out in October. Sure, the website is now functioning pretty well after a two-month makeover, but if I were President and there was a program known as "Obeidallah-care" or "Dean-aid," I can assure you that the website for that program would've been amazing from Day 1.

The President and First Lady are looking to make it easier for low-income and disadvantaged students to go to College.

Today they hosted a summit at the White House aimed at expanding College opportunities.

During the event, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about her own decision to apply to College and how her brother impacted her choice.

"If Princeton hadn't found my brother as a basketball recruit, and if I hadn't seen that he could succeed on a campus like that, it never would have occurred to me to apply to that school. Never. And I know that there are so many kids out there like me. Kids who have a world of potential but maybe their parents never went to college."

Leaders from dozens of Colleges, Non-Profit Organizations, Foundations, State Governments, and Businesses were also invited to attend the event.
