Biden BYPASSED Congress – Now He Could Pay the Price
(TheRedWire.com) – On August 24, President Joe Biden announced a $300 to $500 billion plan to forgive federal student loans for those who earn less than $125,000 individually or $250,000 for a married couple. In 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the president didn’t have the authority to forgive student loans without explicit legislation from Congress. She has since changed her tune. On Wednesday, August 30, a Republican lawmaker stated the GOP might sue to block the administration’s program for bypassing the Constitution’s separation of powers.
Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) told Just the News television program Republicans would join together to stop the administration. Currently, lawmakers are home for the summer recess. Norman emphasized they’re hearing an earful from upset and angry constituents. He asked where Biden would stop if Congress didn’t hold him accountable. Would he forgive car loans, mortgages, or credit cards?

The South Carolina congressman added that people understand the student loan forgiveness program will add to the national debt and inflation and result in higher taxes. Norman said the president was using the ploy to buy votes but called it a “slap in the face” to those who didn’t incur college debt.
Outside of Congress, lawsuit threats are increasingly likely. According to the group’s CEO, Alfredo Ortiz, the Job Creators Network is among those considering legal action. Speaking to the Associated Press, Ortiz claimed the administration transferred the debt to individuals and small businesses.
