Jill Biden: ‘Disappointed’ Democrats Could Not Deliver on Free Community College

First lady Jill Biden said at the Community College National Legislative Summit in Washington, DC, taking place between February 6-9 that she is “disappointed” that congressional Democrats could not pass the Build Back Better Act, along with a provision to allow eligible students two years of free community college education and, thus, fulfill a campaign promise.
