Here's How To Reach The Senators Who Voted Against Debt Relief To Student Loan Borrowers

On Wednesday, the Senate voted 56-38 against a measure that would have helped millions of Americans with expensive student loans.

The measure, proposed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), would have allowed people to refinance their student loan debt at lower rates. President Barack Obama got behind the measure earlier this week.

Other than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who voted against the measure on procedural grounds in order to preserve Democrats’ ability to reconsider it at a later date, only Republicans voted against the proposal, which failed to get the 60 votes needed to avoid a filibuster. Only three Republican senators -- Susan Collins of Maine, Bob Corker of Tennessee and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska -- voted in favor of Warren’s proposal.

Below, a list of the Twitter handles of all of the senators who voted no on the measure, excluding Reid. Find their information and let them know how you feel. For a full roll call, click here.

CORRECTION: The list has been adjusted to include the correct Twitter handle for Sen. Richard Shelby.
