BREAKING: SCOTUS Hands Down ANOTHER Landmark Ruling

The Supreme Court has just handed down a landmark ruling and a major blow to the Biden administration.

According to the recent ruling, Joe Biden does not have the authority to unilaterally cancel student loan debt and threw out the Biden administration’s lawsuit.

SCOTUS ruled along a 6-3 line—pretty much along the standard political divide, one would expect.

Benny Johnson pointed out: “SCOTUS cited Nancy Pelosi in their ruling against Biden’s Student Loan handout.” “People think that the President of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness. He does not. He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power. That has to be an act of Congress.”

Far-left socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed:

“It is very important to note this SCOTUS ruling does NOT remove Biden’s ability to pursue student loan forgiveness. The Biden Admin can use the HEA (Higher Ed Act) – our position from the start – to continue loan forgiveness before payments resume. They should do so ASAP.”

Left-wing NBC News had this to say:

The court rejected the Biden administration’s arguments that the plan was lawful under a 2003 law called the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act, or HEROES Act.

The law says the government can provide relief to recipients of student loans when there is a “national emergency,” allowing it to act to ensure people are not in “a worse position financially” as a result of the emergency.

Conservatives celebrated the recent move while those on the left lamented the lack of a palpable student loan forgiveness program.

Tim Scott writes:

“Today, SCOTUS made the right decision on student loans. Biden wanted to make waitresses & mechanics pay the student loans of doctors & lawyers who make six figures. If you take out a loan, you pay it back. It’s time for a President who values hard work & the people who do it.”


CBS News quoted Chief Justice Roberts:

“We hold today that the act allows the secretary to ‘waive or modify’ existing statutory or regulatory provisions applicable to financial assistance programs under the Education Act, not to rewrite that statute from the ground up,” Roberts wrote.

The “economic and political significance” of the loan forgiveness plan, Roberts wrote, “is staggering by any measure.”
