BREAKING: Judge Halts Biden’s Plan

BREAKING NEWS

(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – BREAKING NEWS: Joe Biden’s latest version of his student loan giveaway plan has been temporarily halted as two federal judges ruled in favor of multiple Republican states.

Recently, both preliminary injunctions were filed to prevent the Biden-Harris administration from implementing the Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) repayment program, which was supposed to take effect on July 1.

This marked a win for Kansas and Missouri, who spearheaded multistate lawsuits against the SAVE plan this spring.

According to Kansas’s lawsuit, SAVE would have erased at least $156 billion in student loan debt, shifting the burden to taxpayers. Missouri’s lawsuit estimated that the plan would have cost American taxpayers $475 billion over the next decade.

Moreover, Attorney General Kris Kobach of Kansas led a coalition in suing Biden, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, and the Department of Education for attempting to bypass Congress and approve student debt cancellation for a second time.

Since Biden took office, 4.75 million borrowers have had $167 billion in student debt canceled, with the costs transferred to taxpayers.

The SAVE program was introduced after the Supreme Court struck down a similar plan last June, which would have transferred up to $430 billion in student debt to taxpayers.

Therefore, Kobach’s lawsuit contended that the Department of Education lacks the authority to cancel billions in student debt and argued that the SAVE program violates the Supreme Court’s ruling. It asserted that only Congress can authorize student-loan “forgiveness,” as it involves taxpayer money.

Kansas and Missouri were among the six states that successfully challenged the Biden administration’s Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students (HEROES) Act last year.

In Biden v. Nebraska, the Supreme Court ruled 6–3 that Cardona does not have authority under the HEROES Act to cancel approximately $430 billion in student debt, noting that this would impact nearly all borrowers.

“Kansas’s victory today is a victory for the entire country,” Kobach said in a statement.

He further added, “As the court correctly held, whether to forgive billions of dollars of student debt is a major question that only Congress can answer. Biden’s administration is attempting to usurp Congress’s authority. This is not only unconstitutional, it’s unfair.”

More than a dozen states have sued Biden, the Department of Education, and its head over this student-debt issue. Kansas was joined in its lawsuit by Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.
