Biden Faces New Legal Hurdles Over Student Loan Plans

President Joe Biden is facing legal challenges for his plans to cancel student loans. The Supreme Court previously rejected his debt relief plan in 2023. Now, he is introducing new programs like the Saving on Valuable Education (SAVE) plan and another program announced in April. Republican attorneys general have filed lawsuits against the SAVE plan, arguing that it expands statutes beyond their original meaning. Dr. Jonathan Pidluzny from the America First Policy Institute criticized the administration for using bureaucratic power to impose regulations without congressional approval.

In 2022, Biden tried to forgive loans for millions through the HEROES Act but was stopped by the Supreme Court. The SAVE plan aims to reduce student loan repayments and forgive debt after a certain period. However, 18 attorneys general, led by Kansas and Missouri, have filed lawsuits against the plan, claiming Biden is overstepping his authority. Missouri’s lawsuit accuses Biden of bypassing the Constitution and making costly policy changes without consent. These legal battles highlight concerns about government overreach and the need for checks and balances.

Despite the legal challenges, Biden recently announced more executive actions to provide debt relief to millions of borrowers. The administration is relying on the Higher Education Act to implement these changes. Legal experts suggest that the court’s previous ruling on Biden’s plans could impact the legality of the new initiatives. The cost of implementing these programs is a significant concern, with estimates reaching billions of dollars in additional taxpayer funds.

Critics argue that Biden’s focus on student loan forgiveness may be more about gaining favor with voters than following proper legal procedures. The administration’s aggressive use of executive actions has raised questions about the legality of its actions. While the White House has not responded to requests for comment, the ongoing legal battles underscore the importance of upholding the rule of law and respecting constitutional boundaries. It is crucial for Congress to review and address any potential overreach by the executive branch to ensure accountability and transparency in governance.
