Biden pushes ahead with student loan relief despite SCOTUS ruling

by Renata

President Biden is vowing to move forward with his student loan forgiveness plan, in spite of the Supreme Court ruling it unconstitutional.

The president wants the new relief to come under the Higher Education Act of 1965. Biden will use this act to pause the threat of default for borrowers, and credit scores will be unaffected by unpaid monthly bills. Along with making promises to those carrying student debt, Biden also struck an accusatory note at Republicans.

But it looks like Americans don’t necessarily agree with the President’s sentiments. A recent ABC/Ipsos survey suggests 45% of voters agreed with the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the debt relief plan, while 40% disagreed.
