A federal judge in Texas has shut down Biden’s student loan bailout, at least for now.
You may recall that a couple of years ago, even Nancy Pelosi said that not Biden or any other president had the power to do this.
It was nothing more than a political bribe to young voters.
Federal Judge in Texas Blocks Biden’s Student Loan Handouts
A U.S. Judge in Texas struck down President Joe Biden’s plan to give millions of student debt borrowers up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients and $10,00 for those who borrowed money using federal student loans.
“Whether the Program constitutes good public policy is not the role of this Court to determine. Still, no one can plausibly deny that it is either one of the largest delegations of legislative power to the executive branch or one of the largest exercises of legislative power without congressional authority in the history of the United States,” U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman wrote in a statement.
Pittman said that Biden’s student loan forgiveness program usurped Congress’s power to make laws.
“In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone. Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government,” Pittman wrote, adding “the Court is not blind to the current political division in our country. But it is fundamental to the survival of our Republic that the separation of powers as outlined in our Constitution be preserved.”
People on the right celebrated the decision.
A federal judge tonight vacated the Presidents executive order to forgive student loans on a mass basis as unlawful. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who feel that transferring 1/2 trillion dollars from working people to college graduates is crazy.

Biden knew he couldn’t “forgive”your student loan debt…..
He lied for votes knowing it would get thrown out in court!

Didn’t we say this would happen right after the elections? Why yes, yes we did.

Biden is playing a con game with other people’s money.
