President Obama's new ad aims for the college votes

From a press release:

Today Obama for America released a new television ad in Florida titled “Higher” that highlights President Obama’s commitment to keeping college affordable and attainable for all Americans. The President believes that we need to make education a national priority so our students can compete and succeed in the jobs of the future. That’s why he doubled funding for college grants, capped federal student loan payments, and passed the largest college tax credit ever.

 While keeping college affordable is a critical part of the President’s blueprint for an economy that’s built to last, Mitt Romney has suggested that students should “shop around” if they are worried about paying tuition. Romney’s policies don’t just hurt students and working families in Florida; they hurt our ability to grow our economy. President Obama believes that a strong and growing economy that’s built to last starts with returning to the basic values of fairness and opportunity that made our country great. That is why he is running for re-election: to keep America moving forward.
