The Justice Department last month asked the Supreme Court to intervene and lift the block on Joe Biden’s student loan bailout plan.
The US Supreme Court on Thursday said it will review the legality of Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan.
The high court said it will review the student loan bailout plan in expedited oral arguments scheduled for February, ABC News reported.
Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan is currently on hold after the 8th Circuit Court extended a block on the plan.
Joe Biden unilaterally announced a massive forgiveness of student loans in August to buy the Gen Z-Millennial vote in the 2022 midterms.
Biden canceled up to $10,000 in student debt for borrowers who earn $125,000 a year or less and up to $20,000 for recipients of Pell Grants.
The 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals last month extended a block on Joe Biden’s student loan bailout plan.
Separately, a federal judge in Texas last month struck down Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan.
United States District Judge Mark Pittman, a Trump appointee, scolded Joe Biden in a blistering opinion.
The student loan bailout plan did not pass through Congress as Joe Biden falsely claimed – and Judge Pittman BLASTED Biden for ruling with a ‘pen and phone.’
“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…The Court is not blind to the current political division in our country,” the judge wrote.
“But it is fundamental to the survival of our Republic that the separation of powers as outlined in our Constitution be preserved. And having interpreted the HEROES Act, the Court holds that it does not provide ‘clear congressional authorization’ for the Program proposed by the Secretary,” Judge Pittman wrote.
