A federal judge has put a halt to Joe Biden’s obscene pander to his leftist base by ending his student loan forgiveness scheme.
President Donald Trump appointee Judge Mark Pittman ruled that the scheme is unconstitutional.
Per Breitbart News:
President Donald Trump appointee Judge Mark Pittman ruled in favor of the conservative advocacy group Job Creators Network, which brought suit on behalf of two student loan borrowers. One of the borrowers was ineligible for Biden’s loan forgiveness program, and the other did not qualify for the entire $20,000 forgiveness.
The plaintiff-borrowers argued Biden’s administration violated federal law by denying borrowers an opportunity to provide public comment before rolling out the program.
The judge added:
The Constitution vests “all legislative powers” in Congress. This power, however, can be delegated to the executive branch. But if the executive branch seeks to use that delegated power to create a law of vast economic and political significance, it must have clear congressional authorization. If not, the executive branch unconstitutionally exercises “legislative powers” vested in Congress. In this case, the HEROES Act— a law to provide loan assistance to military personnel defending our nation—does not provide the executive branch clear congressional authorization to create a $400 billion student loan forgiveness program.
Good news, this.
A president has no right to just wipe out debt between private parties.
This won’t likely be the final word on this. But one good sign came almost right away when the Dept. of Education removed its application for debt relief.Commentary
