Putting higher education within the reach of all those who are willing to work for it is one of the most important economic challenges we face. So President Obama is introducing a new set of ideas to rethink the way in which we pay for college.

On a bus tour to meet with students, he asked people to raise their voices online to discuss why this issue is so important, and the hashtag #MakeCollegeAffordable started trending nationwide.

@Jzieno: "@WhiteHouse I need an affordable education because I don't qualify for much financial aid..."

Each of these voices is an important reminder about why we can't wait to take action.

If you want to join this conversation online,use Twitter or post to Facebook using the hashtag #MakeCollegeAffordable.
