Biden Caves To The Squad – Extends Pause On Student Loan Payments

The pause on student loan payments was set to end in February of 2022 and Biden supported it, but it made the far left members of the squad angry, so he ended up caving and changing his mind.

Now the new date for the end of the pause is May 1st.

Over the next six months, the far left will try to convince Biden to make it permanent. Just watch.

Those with student loans had been scheduled to begin repayments on February 1. Although unemployment is relatively low, the president said, many are still struggling with the economic fallout from the pandemic.

“Now, while our jobs recovery is one of the strongest ever — with nearly 6 million jobs added this year, the fewest Americans filing for unemployment in more than 50 years, and overall unemployment at 4.2 percent — we know that millions of student loan borrowers are still coping with the impacts of the pandemic and need some more time before resuming payments,” Mr. Biden said in his statement announcing the extension.

The pause on payments has affected 41 million Americans, according to the White House.
