The Supreme Court Strikes Down Biden’s Student Debt Forgiveness Plan And Uses Nancy Pelosi’s Quote To Do It (Screenshot)

The Supreme Court on Friday blocked the Biden administration’s student debt relief plan, stopping more than 40 million borrowers from receiving loan forgiveness and delivering a major defeat to one of the president’s key campaign promises.

The high-stakes decision will limit President Biden’s options to deliver on his commitment to cancel $10,000 of student loans for low- and middle-income borrowers.

“The Secretary asserts that the HEROES Act grants him the authority to cancel $430 billion of student loan principal. It does not,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote. The court ruled 6-3 along ideological lines.

Biden’s plan would have canceled up to $20,000 in loans for Pell Grant recipients and $10,000 for other borrowers, if the individual’s income is less than $125,000. The income limit was doubled for married couples.

Anticipation had been building that the court’s conservative majority would strike down the plan. During oral arguments in February, several justices expressed doubt about the Education Department’s authority to unilaterally forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student debt.

The cases against the program were brought by two groups of challengers: six GOP-led states and two individual borrowers, with both groups arguing that the administration exceeded its authority.

What is even more important is the fact that Justice Roberts cited Nancy Pelosi in the majority opinion when she said Biden doesn’t have the power to cancel student debt.

Got to thank Nancy for this one!

Under Biden’s plan, the federal government would have forgiven up to $10,000 in federal student debt for Americans who make less than $125,000 annually and $20,000 for Pell grant recipients who came from lower-income families.

Biden vowed to cancel student debt during his run for president in 2020.

Good ! Most of the recipients of the tuition welfare scheme used the money to buy nice cars and live in nice apartments while they attended classes for a degree in “(something) Studies”

If they attended classes at all. Members of my generation worked for college tuition, even laying out a semester or two to work and build up $ for the next couple of semesters, graduating, as I did, not owing a penny in debt.

I would like anyone in any level of government to point to where in the Constitution they find the right or authority to do this………in fact, for anything they’re doing.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
