A man who was a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, Adam Schiffs education policy has been an important contributor to his success as a Republican presidential candidate.
Schiff served as a member of the House Appropriations Committee and has a reputation as a tireless advocate for the interests of taxpayers.
He helped craft a bipartisan bill to raise the retirement age from 67 to 67 and reduce its cost to $2,500 per person.
He also pushed to get veterans’ benefits expanded to include disability payments.
Schiffs education platform was a priority during his presidential campaign and helped him beat Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the Iowa caucuses.
Schifs education platform, which was crafted in partnership with the American Federation for Children, was a major reason he was able to beat Clinton in Iowa, winning the state by a razor-thin margin.
Schaffs education policies helped propel him to the White House in 2020 and he was a top target of former President Donald Trumps attacks on the Education Department.
He received a barrage of criticism for the department, which he said was “too soft” on education.
Schuff was one of Trump’s most vocal critics and a Trump supporter during the campaign.
He has often argued for higher education funding and has pushed for the government to increase federal funding for higher ed.
