Foxx: ED’s FAFSA Fallout Continues

WASHINGTON – Today, Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement on the Department of Education’s continued blunders in its rollout of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA):

"Biden’s Education Department is at it again—today announcing it botched hundreds of thousands of aid packages for families with no timeline on fixing those errors. This is after a bungled launch filled with technical errors left millions of students and families still without information about their financial aid packages—critical information required to know what they can afford before enrolling in school. Mr. President, some of us set budgets before spending money recklessly.

"While this dysfunction continues, the Committee’s request for answers and information on behalf of students, families, and institutions is met with obfuscation and a total unwillingness to communicate.

"The cherry on top is Secretary Cardona attempting to pin the blame on everyone else for these failures that are entirely his own. Perhaps the Department should invest in additional mirrors across its offices—the Secretary would do well to take a long, hard look into one."
